Great List of Alternatives to Traditional Schooling

33 Ways to Learn That Are Way Bet­ter Than Tra­di­tion­al School­ing Nowa­days, I am inclined to think, as Clark Aldrich writes, that “What a per­son learns in a class­room is how to be a per­son in a class­room.” And, frankly, being a part of the bro­ken, immoral edu­­ca­­tion-indus­tri­al com­plex, the mono­lith­ic monop­oly for­ev­er, futile­ly trying […]

Memitude: Who am I?

From and : You know how some­times peo­ple on your friend’s list post about stuff going on in their life, and all of a sud­den you think “Wait a minute? Since when are they work­ing THERE? Since when are they dat­ing HIM/HER? since when???” And then you won­der how you could have missed all that […]

Happy Wednesday!

Sam and I had a very nice date night while Katie was out with her beau. He had start­ed mak­ing chili last night, fin­ished it tonight, and added corn muffins. I’m not a big fan of chili (I won’t eat it if Sam did­n’t make it), but it was a very sat­is­fy­ing meal. The girl is […]

Homeschooling High School in College?

It’s been SO long since I updat­ed things here! Not that I think any­body real­ly missed me, but still, I should have kept it up a bit bet­ter. Katie tried attend­ing a good high school near us and loved it. She got great grades, was cho­sen to work on the year­book (it’s a very competitive […]

Further Prof of Insanity: Blog365

I got through NaBloPo­Mo, as ridicu­lous as it was to com­mit to post­ing at least once a day for a month. So of course that small suc­cess has led me, in a moment of more-than-usu­al-luna­­cy, to sign up for Blog365 (oth­er­wise known as “Out of the Fry­ing Pan, Into the Fire”). The pur­pose is fair­ly clear: […]

Reading

So, the Crazy Hip Blog Mamas want me to talk about what read­ing means to me or my child. How about both? You might have noticed that I talk, a lot, about read­ing. I think Now Read­ing shows at least four five of the books that I’m read­ing right now, and that’s a fair­ly nor­mal number. […]

Homeschool to high school update

I haven’t men­tioned how Katie is doing in school in a while. While there have been some adjust­ment issues switch­ing over to “school” from home­school­ing, she’s got all As. The “life by the bell” thing has been a nui­sance, and she and one of her teach­ers just do not com­mu­ni­cate on the same wave­length, but […]

Will we regret homeschooling later?

I don’t think so, hon­est­ly. And, if she’s any­thing like those who par­tic­i­pat­ed in a recent sur­vey, I don’t think Katie will, either. …accord­ing to “Home­school­ing Grows Up,” a research study on adults who were home­schooled, 74 per­cent of those who were home­schooled are cur­rent­ly home­school­ing their own children.…The “Home­school­ing Grows Up” sur­vey said that […]
