No direct experience, no. It's a public school at home, so while it is "free" you adhere to the PS standards of your state.

Though not a school per-say we use Time4Learning for our daughter now.

It offers not only a pretty extensive online curriculum but also includes many printables for supplementing the online portion and help in areas where a child may struggle and need active learning.

They offer language arts, science, math and social studies. There is a writing program as well... which is like a word processor of sorts. They handle the grading of the child’s work and then you can view and print the reports for your portfolio or file. You have them work at their own pace, independently or side by side with a parent if need be.

There are many options as far as where to begin and go once in the program, our daughter does everything in order but with the math she likes to skip around a bit. Also our daughter has difficulty in math so she is on a 4th grade level in math but on 5th grade level in everything else. T4L gives you that freedom.

We like it because we do not have to worry about buying new books and work books every time she changes levels or areas of interest. But also the areas of study are easily found at the library and in other curriculums so you could mix and math everything. It is very cohesive with other curricula.

They have the full curriculum, but you can also use it for supplementing where your child struggles, or for after school or as a tutoring program. They also have a kids area called the play ground as well as a great parent forum. The price is super affordable as well… no contracts or any of that to worry about.

Just an idea to throw out there, we use it and are very satisfied. You can do a google search and it will readily pull up.
We love our blog!

Of course I found this thread in search of information and opinions on the online public schools. However what I found was rude accusations being thrown at other homeschool parents. Just sad : ( There is no place adults can come together and discuss interests and ask questions without someone coming in with harsh judgements.

Well, I wrote a letter to parents today and would like to share it so that others can critique my belief in my online education system.

Please leave a comment if you have a blogger (google) account.

What I personally think is if your child is having an problem with maths or even suffering from math phobia, best option for your child is get them an home math tutor it would really help them out.

I hope this isn't too late but the best way to conquer math phobia is to make math appear "cool". Often, it looks so dull and imposing that kids naturally are turned off by it. Try supplementing your child's curriculum with worksheets - there are so many out there with favourite Disney, DreamWorks, Pixar Characters. The other thing you can do is introduce him to . I recommend this because it has worked with my children and those I tutor. Of course, my advice to you would be to look for games YOU think are appropriate for your child since you know him best. Play it, review it. I'm sure your son will grow to love Math in no time.
