Johnny can't read ... but DAMN can he skate


Home schooling draws the leer of the Gray Lady ... as a growing number of action sportsters (ie, surf/skate/snow) are either dropping out or shooting for an equivalency degree via home schooling.

It's not unusal in the outdoor space either ... check out some of the budding kayak stars and ask yourself when the last time they saw the inside of a biology classroom.

And, in what may be the biggest mainstream story of all, traditional sporting athletes (stick and ball boys) and their parents are lobbying to allow them access to varsity athletic programs, while maintaining their own home-schooling curriculum.
