I don't think college degrees should be required of parents who choose to homeschool, after all there is nothing stopping parents from learning subjects along with their children. What did Laura Brodie have to say on the matter?
But once I stopped to consider the subject, I thought: of course a college degree could not be required for homeschooling. First of all, there’s the matter of economic fairness. We don’t have an educational system in which college is open to all citizens. Even at public institutions offering substantial financial aid, a bachelor’s degree has been priced out of many Americans’ reach.
Secondly, we all know brilliant members of American society who never earned college degrees. Bill Gates is the example most often cited. F. Scott Fitzgerald and Robert Frost are two illustrious college dropouts dear to my English-teacher heart. I always tell my students that self-education, through constant reading and engagement in the world, is the most important part of their learning—classroom experience is a small piece of the puzzle.
