So far, all 5-star reviews... WOOHOO! Plus, it's now available in paperback in addition to the e-book format.  Hope it does as well as "Overcome Your Fear of Homeschooling" is doing.

IEP season is just beginning and frustrated parents are starting to consider alternatives for their Learning Abled Kids.  While it was SCARY, Homeschooling was the best decision we ever made on behalf of our kids!

In light of the common core movement, I'm rethinking public education.. Do we really need to define specific facts every child should know?  I think reading skills, written communication, and mathematical computation are foundational and critical elements to teach.  What else do I think is critical for our future?  I believe research and analysis skills, creative thinking, financial literacy, and technology skills will carry any child further into the future than memorizing all of the presidents, the 50 state capitals, the major bones in the body, etc.  So much of what the education powers that be want to consider "core" knowledge is soon forgotten after school and is of little use in the daily careers of adults. Agree? Disagree? What do you think is essential learning to prepare our children for tomorrow's world?
