Re: Why I am a HOME SCHOOLING working mom!
lets cut to the chase


Buy 1 course $22.00 $22.00 $18.04 $18.04
Buy 2 courses $19.00 $38.00 $15.58 $31.16
Buy 3 courses $18.67 $56.01 $15.31 $45.93
Buy 4 courses $18.00 $72.00 $14.76 $59.04
Buy 5 courses $16.40 $82.00 $13.45 $67.25
Buy 6 courses $15.67 $94.02 $12.85 $77.10



what's your cut?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 2376403


None.

"K12 education options include:
· Full-time, tuition-free online public schooling available in many states.
· An accredited online private school available worldwide, full- and part-time.
· Over 200 courses, including AP and world languages, for direct purchase."

Most people in the US do not need to purchase the regular curriculum, only the AP courses. That has been my expereince, anyway through the WYVA.

If you are in the UK, why do you care about US education? Or are you on a proxy for a reason?

Homeschool doesn't mean lack of social contact - it just means a higher-class of people that the child is in contact with.

I homeschooled my special needs son for 6 years. He sat in a public school classroom watching cartoons all the time and wasn't learning anything at all. I KNEW he could learn but needed someone to actually spend time with him giving directions and showing him how to do things. He is 21 now and is taking an Adult Basic Skills class through the Community College in our area. I am not putting myself on a pedistle but know I at least gave him more than they ever did. I commend anyone who takes this responsibility on. Good on ya, OP!applause2

Re: Why I am a HOME SCHOOLING working mom!
I use this system for my three kids and would never turn back. It is public school and I pay nothing! it is cheaper than attending a live school as well wthout all the nonsense the are trying to feed them.

The school sends you a computer and all of the supplies. They have the opportunity to keep going with work so they are not held back by slower children. My k-student is in 2nd grade math! If they get bored in a traditional school, they act out, and the teachers just don't care anymore. More parents should consider this! They get plenty of interaction from kids and learn what they should be at home.(which is no longer teached in traditional schools)

Homeschooling IS our way of standing up and fighting the system.
Anywhere from 3-6% of Americans are homeschooling, and the number is growing every year. It's not a fairy land, it's just a life where I don't have to worry if my kid is going to be shot or stabbed at school, or if his peers in middle school are going to get him to try drugs. I also don't have to worry if he's going to come home one day and tell me he got his 12 yr old classmate pregnant. That's the reality of public education in my country. And on top of all of that, they don't teach the kids much of anything, and it doesn't matter if I go to every single PTA meeting, it won't change. So I simply changed what reality I chose to raise my children in.

You know - I went to school with an exchange student from Switzerland. Her parents sent her to the US for one school year. They DEMANDED that she not be placed in the public school system and they paid extra for her to go to a private school while here. This was 25 years ago. The schools have gotten even worse since then. Oh, and when she got here, she ended up being placed in 10th grade instead of the 11th grade she should have been in because she was not able to do the work. The little Swiss Miss, an exceptional student at her Swiss school, was behind when she got to the US.

 Quoting: Mt.Mama 1517600


One of the really nice things about the program that we are doing, is that it allows your child to work at his or her own rate. For instance, my child requires a little more time with math than some of his other subjects. Also some children are easily distracted and placing them in a more serene environment can help them to concentrate better. Your child is very fortunate that you took the initiative to recognize that he learned in a slightly different way, and took steps to facilitate that learning.sun
