Ok, as of 10:30 this morning my 10 year old nephew is now being homeschooled by my family.
We are so tired of the bullies and the great principle who blames it all on how bad the bullies home life is and we should feel sorry for him, so lets take it out on my nephew. After all a 12 year old child threatening to kill my nephew is just misunderstood and he wouldn't do anything to my nephew. After that kid got talked to he enlisted the help of 4 or 5 other kids to constantly bully, kick and hit my nephew, with the same response the kids have a bad home life. And no punishment to the kids. No condoning it but you can almost see why some poor kids go off the deep end. Sorry just had to vent.
We are going to deschool him until right after Easter, then start his schooling back up. Needless to say we are TERRIFIED by the prospect, but eager also. I do have a question. Is there a place that I can go online and test him to find out what he needs to be learning to get him through the 4th grade. We are also thinking about using Time4learning but are not sure if we should just wing it for the rest of this year and then start him for 5th grade.
We live in Montana and have looked at what all we are required to do for him and it seems fairly easy we just don't want him to go backwards.
Any and all help would be appreciated.
