home schooling?

Update on the entry about homeschooling.

In a further attempt to make my life miserable, the Associated Press updated its style book and decided on the following:

•home schooling



Some of this contradicts the style we had decided for the story we ran. Further, it still is a bit confusing (I’m guessing home-schooled is the adjective, but what if people use it as a verb in a quote?)

Bear in mind that this is from the people who brought you the one-worded “stylebook,” the two-worded “Web site” and not so long ago dropped the hyphened “teen-ager” and “fund-raiser” but added a hyphen for “best-seller.”

My head hurts, again, so I’ll see you to-morrow.
