if that doesn't sound too creepy and stalkerish...

You're weird. grin

That said, she does make me LOL when I read her.

She is great - I had no idea she was home educated though.

is Caitlin Moran the same girl who was some kind of writing child star when I was a teenager?

duelingfanjo Tue 15-Sep-09 08:14:14

Brilliant article.
One of the best I've read in ages (maybe the best).
Very down to earth and right to the point.

the novel she wrote when she was 16 re being home-edded (The Chronicles of Narmo) is hilarious also, though she is wearing a silly hat in the author photo which meant I was never as jealous of her as I might otherwise have been.

I just came to check if there was a thread! grin Read the times at the dentist this morning, my dad pointed it out to me and he is a bit less pro HE than me to put it mildly...so I hope he reads it.

DD2 and I just read this together and laughed out loud!

very glad there is so many more socialising opportunities now though.

Writing about the Review on home education findings:

"In short, it doesn’t seem to understand the very vital concept that a child can receive not a single, formal piece of education for more than a decade and then — as in the case of my brother Jim — pack himself off to an adult education college, knock off GCSEs and A-levels in two years flat, and go on to Cambridge. And, because he was entirely self-motivated, all without my parents having to nag him once to do his homework"

Oh yes..........................
