There's a lot of Tiger Momming going on in this NY Magazine's profile of five NYC homeschooling families. Also a lot of momming in general. And one dad who taught one class once Antonin Dvorak.
Also, parents saying things like not wanting their kids to have to experience waiting in a line. And some Montessori preschool class with just 12 kids which was apparently terrorized by a 4-yo bully? Was it run by an intern? How could a real teacher, much less a Montessori one, let that happen? Also, being accused unfairly in some schoolyard fracas?
And yet somehow, as intriguing as NYC homeschooling seems--and really, is there a better place that isn't a sailboat circumnavigating the globe to homeschool a kid?--it really is the mom-heaviness of homeschooling that stands out here.
That, and the siblings named Billie & Ocean, which, Brooklyn, obviously.
UPDATE: Hahayeah, there is also this chance to meet a homeschooled kid from New Zealand, who wrote a letter to the editor of something explaining how being gay will turn us into Planet of The Ducks. [wonkette, thanks dt reader john]
