Homeschooling only in math?
Problem is that the school's new "common core" mixed with the No Child Left Behind and a small school with limited resources is that both are being slowed down to the speed of the slowest kids in the class.
We've met with teachers and administrators and we get the whole active listening but no response over and over.
The school is bad enough that we'll send them to a local private school starting in grade 9. There are no private options around for K-8 that would work.
This means that I want to make sure that they are ready going into grade 9 to be competitive. We're a science centered family and want to give the opportunity to compete in high school in college. I think they should be on track to take Calculus in high school, so I'm thinking ideally they want to be done with Algebra I by the end of 8th grade - more if they are prepared for it.
The school won't help, so I'm wondering about teaching them math at home - just math, nothing else.
They both really like school and love the social aspect and I don't want to take them away from that, so the idea of pulling them totally does not appeal.
Wondering what kind of thoughts you all might have for me?
