Worthy Reads

First…

**My condolences to the marathon runners and the people of Boston for this tragic event.**

My Worthy Reads are slim on articles about homeschooling in the media. Part of the reason is that all the articles I’m finding mostly have to do with the Romeike case, but I’m washing my hands of that. Thanks to everyone who commented on my  post about that case. If you haven’t read those comments, I suggest you do. It’ll give you a different perspective on that case than has been portrayed in the media.
