Hello Readers! Thank you for the recent kind comments. So where have I been? Well, here. Between work whose demands are picking up (but not salary–everyone took a 10% pay cut in early December ), homeschooling and momming, and shepherding M. through the application process this fall to 5 boarding schools and a local application program…well things got kind of busy. More on that later. But for now, I offer you Sir Ken Robinson on homeschooling. You probably know Sir Ken for his *wildly* popular TED talk on creativity. Here’s his very complimentary view on homeschooling.
