And THIS is why I'm homeschooling. For real this time. Edit pg 10
Ever since I pulled ds out of school 2 years ago, I've been struggling to find ways to teach him. First we tried home choice through the school district for the rest of 1st grade. Hated it. Then we tried K12 online schooling for 2nd grade. He was miserable and so was I. The curriculum is boring and too fast paced for him. And the best part, the whole reason why I hate Public school is in the letter I got today.

For the 2014-2014 school year, student is promoted to the 3rd grade.
Seriously?? He had straight Fs and he's being promoted to the next grade? No thank you. So from here on out I'm doing it old school and teaching him myself. And I'm doing away with the whole grade thing too. He'll read whatever books interest him, write whatever he wants to write and do whatever math he's good at. Science and history will whichever subject strikes his fancy at the moment. I'm throwing in the towel and doing it my way now.
