A recent column in Reason magazine argues that homeschooled students are smarter and more tolerant than their publicly-educated peers. A recent column from Reason magazine contributor J.D. Tuccille makes the case that homeschooled students are brighter and more tolerant than their peers that attended public schools. Tuccille cites a study in an academic journal that focuses on school choice and homeschooling that makes the case that homeschooled students are the most willing to extend political freedoms to those with whom they disagree:“Students with greater exposure to homeschooling tend to be more politically tolerant—a finding contrary to the claims of many political theorists,” reports research published in the Journal of School Choice. Defined as “the willingness to extend civil liberties to people who hold views with which one disagrees,” this finding of greater political tolerance among the homeschooled has … [Read more...] about Reason Mag: Homeschooled Children Are More Tolerant than Public School Students
