    Thanks so much for this, this is so great and so true! It is very reassuring for someone who homeschools.

      Yes! You have all the power for your own kids. I am thinking more for all kids when I am watching….

    Also Charter Schools…I don’t know what the charter system is like in other states, but here in Ca. it’s rich. we have 7 charters schools in our school district, 4 of which are for homeschoolers. The one we are in offers numerous classes and activities each week, the children sign up each quarter for what interests them. They are open for the parents and siblings to come, and are mixed ages. A lot of art and science. We are busy with other families 10+ hours a week, and then there is a lot of time for relaxing and finding what their passions are. We don’t worry too much about the 3 r’s until they are 12 or so, if then, Usually the children pick them up on their own because they are interested in learning them, they’re curious. Charter schools are great in that they offer families so many more choices than the industrial model.

      Oh, yes Sara! Charter Schools offer so many things. They fill such a need for innovation and change in public education. The major shift to mainstream public education will be a difficult row to hoe, however. How cool that you can sign up for classes based on interest. This is following the child in the truest sense!
