Homeschooling Article in Parade Magazine

Postby Ophelia » Wed Apr 02, 2008 12:33 pm

I didn't personally see this article but I received an email about it. I didn't get the paper this weekend. I thought I would share it here.

Parade Magazine is a supplement included in the Sunday edition of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

"Today, I saw this in our local newspaper. Parade Magazine (which appears in our Sunday paper) is asking for people to share their thoughts about the following questions:

Should homeschooling be illegal?
Should only certified teachers be allowed to teach students?
If a judge ruled that homeschooling was illegal in your town, how would
it affect your school?
If you want to, "Share your thoughts," please email them at
paradeclassroom. com and tell them what you think about homeschooling."

What is the email address, or do you have a link? I tried to find the area on their site, but the link there didn't work.

This is the email addy I was given. I don't know why it won't show up here in blue like a normal email address would. paradeclassroom.com

And here's their site, but my husband and I both looked and looked and couldn't find the article. www.parade.com/classroom

That's exactly what I received in my email from another person. I'll see if I can track her down and get the right address from her.

Ok Theodore. This was just sent to me. I hope this one works. I haven't had time to reply to them yet because the kids are driving me up a wall today. I can't think straight.

And I would love to see the comments you send to them, if any.

Well, I'm sorry for any confusion this may have caused. I talked to the person who sent me the email and she told me that Parade Magazine printed the email address wrong in it's publication.

Then she informed me that she accidentally sent me the info incorrectly the second time. It doesn't help that the email we were using (Yahoo) likes to butcher links.

A combination of numerous people have finally tracked down the actual article that was printed: http://www.parade.com/paradeclassroom/d ... ooling.pdf

And contact information:
paradeclassroom@parade.com

If the second email address doesn't work try contacting:
