Homeschoolers Doing Well in School, In College, and in Life

A friend on one of the homeschool message boards I participate in, shared this link. It contains some very eye opening statistics about homeschool kids as they compare with public schooled kids. 

If you haven't already read my article about homeschooling and what it does for your child's self esteem and academics, visit this link: What are the benefits of homeschooling?

Virtual Tour of Ellis Island, Perfect for Homeschool

Scholastic just announced a webcast (video) tour of Ellis Island on March 29th that is perfect for homeschool.

This is a GREAT opportunity to help your children understand how America became the melting pot of the world, where all the immigrants came from, and why.

I took my son to Ellis Island last year. I was very impressed with the interactive displays and how vividly they got across the role this important location played in American history. The tour is co-sponsored by the National Park Service.
