Local districts ignore home school ruling

Original post made on Mar 31, 2008

Urged on by the state's top education official, local schools are continuing to support families who teach their children at home, despite a recent appellate court ruling that says only parents with teaching credentials can do so.

FREE WRITING PROGRAM FOR THE HOME SCHOOLED


WWW.THEEASYESSAY.COM IS A FREE SITE THAT MAKES PASSING THE WRITING SECTION OF THE SAT, ACT AND FCAT MUCH EASIER AND IT ONLY TAKES 5 MIN. TO LEARN.

Our concept is based on our belief that in most conversations, the majority of the conversation deals with one person telling the other person why something is true; that is, giving reasons for its validity. That is all that we ask you to do on this site, except in writing. We use the essay form because it is the most efficient form of organization available and we automate the organization so that you limit your statements to proving only the things that you have already stated were true.

www.theeasyessay.com, an automated information organization program is also of use for business reports, inter-office communications, special and rehabilitative education, as well as speech organization.

It has been taught to individuals from eight to eighty and been used from elementary education to post graduate work.

For longer papers it can automatically expand into a 17 paragraph thesis and is usable in any language.

www.theeasyessay.com is free because we feel it is too important to charge for.

If you find the program as effective as I believe it to be, please pass this information on to the media so that the site can get more publicity and help more people, but in any case:


PLEASE PASS THIS ON TO WHERE EVER IT CAN HELP.

Is your post the result of this instruction program? If so, you're charging too much!

It seems like home schooling is becoming a huge part of our communities. Our school's newspaper wrote a feature article about three students discussing their homeschooled lives.

I've read some good things about home schooling and aren't the test scores from home schooled students typically higher. We still to ensure what is being taught but there should be some freedoms to ensure this option is available. But the type of person who could successfully do this is small, I would think. You have to have knowledge in so many different areas. Web Link

I lived in a mixed race community in the South. Home schooling, in many cases, is the best way to secure your child's education in areas where budgets are tight, and classrooms are enormous. I bet a lot of people, including seniors like me, would have liked the opportunity to actually learn and participate at home. Web Link
