You can just type it in. But of course, its not free. Its like $9 a month subscription. I cant imagine they have much to offer that you cant get on homeschool sites for free

If I wanted "certified teachers" opinions, I can get that at the local public school.

This.

I homeschool. Why in the world would I want a public school teacher's opinion on how I'm doing my job?

I doubt this first time poster will generate much interest here. I believe it's called barking up the wrong tree?

Ok, i read the website and apparently it was started by two sisters - one was a teacher and the other decided to homeschool. Her sister's advice was so important to her in her first year, she wanted to offer that as a service to other homeschoolers. So I can see where its coming from - it just doesnt jive with the dominant homeschool philosophy on this board, imo

That is SO the opposite of everything we're trying to do in our home.

Not interested at all, but you know, so many newbies in my local hs group desperately want a hand to hold. Might be worth it to them.

Let me be blunt: what a terrible idea. State standards? Blech. :vomit:

I love it when I have a chance to use the vomit smiley.

Paranoia. Would NEVER click on a link like this...especially from someone who's never posted here before. Sorry.

I'm a certified teacher. (OK, I've actually let my paperwork expire. But two states have licensed me.) It is less useful in homeschooling than you might think. :)
What questions would homeschoolers have? The CCSS and other standards are there for the Googling; teachers have no reason to have read up on state HSing laws; for virtually everything else, HSing experience is going to be more relevant than classroom experience.
