21st Carnival of Homeschooling

At Principled Discovery. Featuring an especially interesting link to a piece at The Learning Umbrella on school districts dumping low-testing kids at risk for dropping out by convincing their parents to "homeschool" them (i.e. let them drop out without it counting as a dropout); a phenomenon we all became more aware of around here after the scandals of the Houston Miracle, and some personal experiences with "dumped" children in homeschooling groups, many of whom have issues beyond the academic.
