I saw and ad on TV about public schools and homeschooling

Basically it was saying about not wanting children left behind and that you can homeschool a child and the support in online and supplies are free.
Maybe onlineschool.com or something like that. Has anyone heard about this?

  • We have one of those K-12 online "schools" in our area too. Not sure about their credentials tho.

  • It looks interesting. I might look into the Spanish classes for my kids. We were looking for an after school class for them to take another language, this might be a good option since I can't find anything local.

  • We have home school support in my school district. I didn't use it for my kids, but a friend of mine who's daughter was overwhelmed with crowded halls, and other things (She's autistic) did. She was happy with it.

  • There's one contracted by the state here, but I haven't checked into it. Quite a few places running online homeschool these days

  • I've seen the K12 program commercials on TV lately. I don't know anything about it. It's K12.com if you want more info. Sorry. Can't make it clicky.

  • K12 is usually a state run program, some moms love them, others think it is way too much like regular school.

  • We didn't teach him at home, but my stepson has used one of those online academies in a special classroom at school to do some of his classes because he can't handle studying with a bunch of other kids. He's catching up and will probably graduate on time, but I do still have questions about how much he learns and retains after taking the tests.
