So, I guess I am wondering, how are the adults on here involved in their community? Do you get to know your neighbors? Do you spend time reaching out to those who aren't part of your church community? Do you get to know the parents at the extra-curricular activities that you take your kids to?

What about online education supporting homeschool?

Postby dahmad » Wed Dec 31, 2008 4:52 pm

I'm curious. If you had an online middle school and high school that offers AP courses, ESL and ELL courses and credit recovery courses, with licensed instructors and a counseling team, that can be accessed from anywhere in the world you find this helpful to you?

Not if it were offered as part of the public school system.

Homeschoolers are successfully doing AP courses themselves; don't usually need ESL or ELL courses; not sure what "credit recovery" means, so I guess I don't need that, either; have never needed "licensed instructors;" and have a counseling team made up of hundreds, if not thousands, of other homeschoolers whom I can access from anywhere in the world. So I guess I don't really need your services. :D

And if ever one of your students fails a course and needs to make it up but not all parts pf the course they would use credit recovery courses for this. Now you've learned something new.

LSNED :-)

That's not usually a problem homeschoolers experience, but I'll know what it means if it comes up in other conversations. :-)
