1. Washington Times Op-ed--Testing Proves Success of Graduates

From the beginning of the re-emergence of homeschooling in the late

of instruction needed to match the education provided in public and
private schools.

Some of the top colleges in America are failing to impart a basic

demonstrate about homeschoolers' knowledge of American civics.
