comment Should the Shliach Tzibur say end-verses quietly to himself before saying them out loud?
@DoubleAA (answering second comment second :-)) Although "Not that it causes great harm" is not my main argumnet, you're absolutely right. I didn't refer in my answer to the end of blessings. Although msh210 helps me (dan lechaf zechut), I can say that I did have in mind to indicate that I exclude blessings and to explicitly apply the answer to Korbanot, Psukei Dezimra and the such.

@DoubleAA first, as this is a minhag - and as neither I, nor anyone else in this site up to now, has found a source for the minhag - I based my description on my observations (mostly) in Israel. It includes too various Ashkenzaim and Sepharadim to bother to mention. However, I accept that it'd be good to indicate it in the answer. Second, in my answer I asume that (1) the logic can be based on even one widely acceptable minhag and (2) that the Sepharadim in Israel (and a few places abroad) answers that requirement.

comment How does Judaism regard homeschooling?
I also read the two blog posts referred by your answer... 1) maybe I'm ignorant, but is he a well-known Rabbi in the Americas? 2) I'm looking for a much more straightforward reference of Rabbis to the issue. Especially, since I got the impression that homeschooling is widely practiced among Orthodox families.
