I think it is possible that the dad was just SUPPORTING his daughter's dream. The court said NO but stood by him as a dad. I am sorry but I do/will stand my kids. If they said they could do something great and I could stand behind them and believe in them that is a great thing.
I disagree with the fascination and focus on how the dad is probably nuts...we need to stand by our kids more and that is what I believe could be the theme of this story... although I have no idea what the situation really is, and how could I through a couple of media reports.
Oh and yes, homeschooling can be awesome, I have met MANY well balanced well educated kids who were home-schooled.
