That is a very interesting article.  I particularly like the part about younger children learning from the older ones.  That is much like the old one room schoolhouse

love that article....i related to a lot of it.  especially driving the kids all over the city & younger kids learning from older ones.  my just turned 4 yo knows so much more than his older sister did at that age.  even the 2 yo jumps up on the table and "does school" with us.  it's neat that we all get to learn things together.  if i'm asked a question that i don't know the answer to, we all research it together and turn that in to a lesson.

Loved it, except I didn't like that she just flat out said "Use whatever public school services you like." I don't know about classes, but HS kids cannot participate in any competitive activity at any OSSAA school in Oklahoma, which is most of the schools and definitely any school that has major sports, marching band, competitive choir, etc. It irritates me to no end because Em loves music and marching bands already, but if she wants to do that when she's old enough she's pretty much out of luck unless they change the rules.

Awe that's not cool! You still par taxes that support the ps. In Nevada where I live the schools have to allow hs you just have to pay the normal fees and physicals as required.

I know! We would do everything required, it's just the eligibility requirements for OSSAA. You have to have a certain level of attendance and be passing all classes and they can't prove that for HSers. Of course we may not even be in Oklahoma when she gets to high school, so it may not be an issue!
