Beyond the fact that homeschoolers are free to actually teach theology, logic, and a host of other things not currently taught in the government schools, of course.
Here's a story about a 30 year old school principal who has been caught sending a, um, "risque" picture of herself to a student she met while playing online video games. Beyond the criminal activity, there is the issue of her age.
You see, the "principal" was once the (per J.T. Gatto) "principal teacher," responsible more for mentoring teachers than for administering the school. Today, we've turned this around, and all that's needed is a master's degree in school administration (or doctorate) and proper political connections. So with a 30 year old principal, the school district was clearly cheating its teachers and students out of what a real principal is supposed to be.
And a funny one (unless you're from Beer City); a Milwaukee area school bus driver has been fired after being caught using plastic bags to avoid going to the restroom. So if school buses gross you out, well, you're not working without evidence. Hopefully a helpful homeschooler can meet this bus driver sometime and let them know that if they want to be more regular, it helps to have some fiber in their diet.
Finally, smart people may want to watch out for Twin Cities area teachers, as a Ramsey County teachress has just been convicted of emulating Mike Tyson in his infamous bout against Evander Holyfield. If you hear them coming, watch out, or else you might not next time.
