Regan Defends His Home Schooling

In a candidate's profile in the Coeur d'Alene Press this morning, appointed School Board Trustee Brent Regan defended the fact that he home-schooled his children, rather than have them in Coeur d'Alene public schools:

Maureen Dolan reports: "Regan has three children, now in their 20s. He said they attended public school briefly. Then he and his wife decided to homeschool them. "If you have children in the school district, it gives a particular perspective, and two of our trustees do. If all the trustees had kids in the district, you'd have just that perspective. There are other perspectives and I think those are important as well. If I had kids in a particular school, would I be biased to the advantage of those kids."

Question: Do you see any problems/advantages with an individual who home-schooled his children serving on the Coeur d'Alene School Board?
