Thinking About Virtual Education

Kansas Dad has been hard at work on a online course for a new masters program. The current list of virtual schools in Kansas is five pages long. (It seems like every district in the state has one, though ours doesn't, so I know that's not really true.) It is with great interest, therefore, that I've read some recent reviews on Milton Gaither's blog, Homeschooling Research Notes. Read more here and here.

In our homeschool, we find ourselves developing our own curriculum (combining resources suggested by Charlotte Mason, Laura Berquist, and Mater Amabilis, with lots of help from wiser homeschooling families). Enrolling in a virtual school would certainly not fit within our goals...at the moment. The idea is interesting, though.

  1. Hello. I am enjoying your blog tonight and wanted to let you know about the company I work for, Master Books (www.masterbooks.net). We are a Christian publisher for homeschool, creation science, apologetics, Bible study, Christian living, current issues, dinosaurs, and Ken Ham.
    Perhaps we have a few titles that your family could benefit from.
    Blessings.
