Another Summit on Education via NBC

The TV network NBC sponsored another "Education Nation" — "a three-day summit aimed at improving education in the U.S".  I don't think too much has happened with public schools in the 3 years NBC has done this, except the lip service politicians offer.  

They did a piece on homeschooling based mainly on (Sugarland) Texas homeschoolers.  Texas has minimal private school (homeschool) regs.  That's a good thing.

Homeschooling families find support through networking. Lauren Freeman reports.

One of the movers and shakers on the federal scene is Arne Duncan – current Department of Education Secretary – and former CEO of Chicago Public Schools.  Here's a more local state story about Mr. Duncan and his official take on Chicago homeschoolers. It's most unfortunate.
