This by no means is a shameless plug or spam.

Both my kids are homeschooled. It is not something that I generally support, but have recently become more accepting of the idea.

In knowing that, I test Linux distributions for fun when I am not being geeky at work. I ran across Edubuntu. It is an OS created for school kids. Specfically, it is a complete educational environment with games and all that. I like it so much that I am thinking of using it in a after-school program I am thinking of starting.

check it out at http://edubuntu.org

Another great feature is the fact that it can be downloaded for free, as opposed to hundreds of dollars for Microsoft stuff, and it will even run on a Mac if needed.

Just something to consider.
