Феминистка о домашнем обучении: “Home schooler” had uncomfortable connotations. Home schoolers lived apart by choice, on remote farms, on boats sailing around the world, in separatist religious communities. [...] The biggest challenge I’ve faced is owning this new identity as a home schooler. I told no one at work, preferring to stay completely in the closet about teaching my daughter at home. My corporation values diversity, but somehow being a home-schooling corporate lawyer felt beyond the pale — a topic simply too taboo to discuss. The corporate world reluctantly accepts a skilled professional working part time while raising small children, but home schooling — so retrograde, so unprofessional — is harder to understand.
