Re: How will you, or how do you, educate your children?

My DD is in public school. But my plan was to homeschool her...I just can't find a secure way to provide for us (housing, food, etc.) so that I may stay home and homeschool her. The one downfall to being a single parent, I guess.

DD (and any other children we have) will be going to a Waldorf (Steiner school) which are typically private, though there are a few Charter ones.

It's not really "religious", but definatelly spiritually based.

Re: How will you, or how do you, educate your children?

I want to HS both girls as both me and my boyfriend find public schools to be lacking. I prefer my girls to be able to learn at a pace that is acceptable for them, and if they find something that they very much enjoy I want to be able to elaborate on it without restrictions. And after some very bad personal issues with private (church affiliated) schools I refuse to send my girls to one. That and since I'm Pagan and my boyfriend is basically a mish-mash of beliefs I'd rather religion not be something taught to my children by anyone else.

Re: How will you, or how do you, educate your children?

my kiddos aren't in school yet but my first option is a religious private school, and my 2nd option is private if we have the option to move into one of the best districts in the state, and if I can't get into a good school system I am VERY open minded about homeschooling....so I guess you can say I am TOTALLY undecided

We send them to public school. The only other options are homeschool or public catholic school. I would like to send them to the FI school but it is part of the Catholic system so I won't.

I am torn about what to do once they hit Grade 7 though. I don't want them going beyond Grade 6 in any of the schools here but I really don't think I could homeschool them either.
