Spelling Bee. The National Spelling Bee has some stats this year that may give some a surprise. According to the Mercury News:
Most spellers attend traditional public schools (179). The rest attend home schools (35), private schools (27), parochial (20) or charter schools (four).

As Instapundit mentioned, the disproportionate home school number seems interesting. And if it isn't disproportionate, then it's telling.
