From Photo District News:

Rachel Papo’s project about a group of families in the Catskills who are homeschooling their children was recently selected as one of Photolucida’s 2012 Critical Mass Top 50. Papo writes about the work: “As the criticism of the U.S. education system grows among parents, so does the appeal of homeschooling. Together with today’s increasingly fast-paced, connected culture, this choice seems an almost natural one for many families. Though still a controversial and heated topic, the number of homeschooled children in America is growing rapidly. For the past year and a half I have been photographing a small number of families living in the Catskills who practice homeschooling.”
