Oh, these modern times

Could Theodore Roosevelt have been home-schooled?

Verbal Energy's Ruth Walker read this at a National Park Service site, and it stuck with her. She realized why a couple of days later: " 'Home-schooling' has a contemporary political edge, and it doesn't fit the Roosevelts."

So what's the alternative? Tutored? Ah, but that has modern connotations of its own.

She digs further in "Bully for tutoring - or is that 'home-schooling'?"
