I do and have for 6 years. I make my own curriculum usually. This year we are trying an online k12 and I hate it.

I heard about this one will check it out. Why do you hate it?

It's run by the public school system so you can't work at your own pace. I don't agree with some of the things they teach so I can't modify the curriculum. It teaches my middle schooler a chapter a day and doesn't give her enough time to really master a skill before giving her another one to learn. For example she had to learn adding fractions on Monday, subtracting fractions on Tuesday, multiplying fractions on Wednesday, dividing fractions on Thursday and unit test on Friday. Then next week she goes onto something else and never sees it again. I did it bc I thought they might have more resources than me but I was doing a better job. I'll never do it again. The phonics system for elementary kids is a joke. I taught my older two to read in 3 months better than this curriculum will do in an entire year.

I do but I use a charter homeschool program so I can afford curriculum.

So itβs pretty reasonable like?

What is curriculum? The charter gives me \$900 a semester per kid to use so I have plenty of money for curriculum. It pays for their violin lessons, art supplies, printer ink, etc as well.
