Parade magazine wants our vote

Parade magazine has posted a poll online about homeschooling and teacher credentials.
Before you vote, keep this quote in mind.

“Some of the worst teachers I’ve ever seen are highly certified. Look at our public schools. They’re full of certified teachers. What kind of magic is that accomplishing? But I can take you to the best teachers I’ve ever seen, and most of them are uncertified.... We don’t have evidence at all that what we do in schools of education makes much difference in teacher competence.”—Dr. Donald Ericksen, UCLA

Go here to vote:
Should parents need teaching credentials to home-school their kids?
