I attended this session in the morning but there was no internet to live blog. Before the session I had no idea what homeschooling is but by the end of the session, I came out with a good understanding of what it is and was very intrigued by the concept. The presenters were really pressing in support of homeschooling and one of their key points was that there is literally no statistical or research evidence other than rhetorical about why homeschooling does not work. I will be very interested in learning more about this and will go through the papers but If anyone know about any other good resource to learn about homeschooling please let me know.
Here are some of my notes from the session -
Dean of SUNY school of education is the chair
On average homeschool students are scoring above average
what about socialization? social emotional and psychological development
home educated students are doing better in these terms
how about adults?
they are doing good as adults too
