'The techies who are hacking education by homeschooling their kids'

A couple of years ago I linked to a piece by a pediatrician who gave 18 reasons why many doctors and lawyers homeschool their children. Comes now a very interesting article in Wired magazine on techie homeschoolers. The author, Jason Tanz, quotes an app designer named Jens Peter de Pedro:

There is a way of thinking within the tech and startup community where you look at the world and go, "Is the way we do things now really the best way to do it?" de Pedro says. If you look at schools with this mentality, really the only possible conclusion is "Heck, I could do this better myself out of my garage!"
