What is YOUR Homeschool like?  What time did you have lunch today?!  Check out this interesting article, “Overcrowding At Queens School To Force 8th Graders Into 9:45 A.M. Lunch” at the CBS Local News website.




Where did your children "do school" today? East-central Illinois homeschool families have formed a community. “Some children will sit around the dining room table for daily lessons, while others will read on the backyard trampoline. A typical day may start with breakfast and Bible study as a family or be a mixture of schoolwork and a part-time job spread throughout the day.”  Read the whole Republic article here.

Do your children read challenging books?   According to an article in the Huffington Post, American high school students are reading books at 5th-grade-appropriate levels! "Teachers, parents, and students need to work together to ensure that students are reading far more challenging books and practicing every year reading more demanding text. Students will not likely choose sufficiently challenging text on their own; they need to be challenged and supported to build their strength as readers by stretching to the next level."

Why is homeschooling a good choice for you? The New Jersey Times says that “Homeschooling has become a viable option for parents; here’s why that’s not a bad thing.”

I had 11:15 lunch every single year in high school and absolutely hated it, I can't even begin to imagine what those poor kids are going through. I'd imagine they probably don't get much time for lunch either - they might be lucky to have 20 minutes, but out of that they'd get maybe five minutes to hork something down 'cause they have to walk to their lockers, visit the bathroom, stand in line for their food, and walk from/to classes.

The HP article on age-appropriate reading is very interesting. It's hard to believe that The Hunger Games or Harry Potter are being read as a HS book. Not that they're bad per se, but it's not exactly difficult.

Definitely something to watch regardless of where your kid's schooling takes place.
