The "S" Word: Homeschoolers and the Real World

From the HSLDA:

Academically homeschoolers have generally excelled, but some critics have continued to challenge them on an apparent "lack of socialization" or "isolation from the world." Often there is a charge that homeschoolers are not learning how to live in the "real world." However, a closer look at public school training shows that it is actually public school children who are not living in the real world.

Homeschooling in the White House...?

"Republican GOP hopeful Rick Santorum may be the most prominent homeschooler in America. So it might not have been surprising that, on Saturday, he told a conservative Christian audience that he intended to homeschool his children in the White House."

FREE workshop on Healthful Eating
Written by Liz Smith   
Friday, 20 May 2011 09:16

Please join us at the Butler Library (basement) on Tuesday, May 31 from 1pm-3pm for a talk on healthful eating on a budget!

My name is Octavia Elder, and I am the mother of a three year old girl who makes me thankful to have the flexibility to work with her every day, rather than sending her to a daycare. I am also the manager of a farmer's co-operative, and have been for almost two years. This spring, I have been scheduling workshops and lectures about healthful eating on a budget, and about supporting the local economy through food. I would be happy to speak with any group of homeschooling parents about those topics, or even speak with the children about what my job is and why it's important to the community.
