A story in the March 12, 2008, issue of Education Week on home-schoolers should have said that home-schoolers in Wisconsin oppose legislation to more closely regulate virtual charter schools. Larry Kaseman, the executive director of the Wisconsin Parents Association, a statewide home-schooling group, said the legislation would undermine home-schoolers’ freedom to choose curricula, to decide which tests to give, and to operate with little to no interference from government officials.

An article in the same issue about international benchmarking mischaracterized Achieve Inc.’s work in Peru. While Achieve is presenting some of its findings on academic standards in that country, the group is not studying Peru’s standards.
