Do you guys know Penelope Trunk? She’s really famous. And I’m guest posting on her blog. About homeschooling. Check it out! I don’t mean to write so much about homeschooling, but people are really interested in it.
They’re interested in it enough to leave hundred of comments under my recent Salon.com piece about how awful I am. I haven’t read any of them, but people keep writing to me to talk about how angry the comments make them. Or how sad. And a lot of these people are homeschooling or unschooling parents. Sometimes, when I get a piece about homeschooling published, it feels like everyone is out to get homeschoolers. Which is weird, because I never ever feel that way otherwise.
“Don’t read the comments!” I begged my parents. But they did anyway. I’m glad they’re tough people.
Anyway, everyone wants to read about homeschooling, even if it makes them furious. Even if they hate me.
Maybe that’s OK. At least they’re reading? At least they’re reading.
