The Real History of American Education

I found a great article that I think most of the anti-homeschoolers REALLY need to read. I've long stated that homeschooling is far closer to how early Americans learned, and this man agrees with me. Hence, the reason I like the article! Hey, I'm easy to please.

Quoting from this site:
As a result, the United States had a uniquely literate population. As numerous commentators of the time noted and US Census figures confirm, white men in America were essentially 100% literate prior to 1870. While schools existed, they were not much used. Like children from time immemorial, American children were educated at home and self-educated, not schooled.
