College Professor Critiques Homeschoolers

For all the discussion about science education and homeschooling, this author offers some of the best advice I've seen in print. I'd like to echo a hearty "Amen!" to his sage advice.

"College Professor Critiques Homeschoolers" by Greg Landry
I teach sophomore through senior level college students - most of them are "pre-professional" students. They are preparing to go to medical school, dental school, physical therapy school, etc.

As a generalization, I've noticed certain characteristics common in my students who were homeschooled. Some of these are desirable, some not.
Mr. Landry offers a number of good resources for homeschoolers on his site as well. Definitely worth checking out!
