News and Views of the Week

Homeschooling News & Views - April 21, 2017

Friday already? Well, well. It’s been a long week. But here’s some interesting news has come out lately that could be of interest to homeschoolers.

First the News…

President Trump says we have to end Common Core and make education policy more local.

Remember the Supreme Court ruling about the boy with special education needs? How will that decision affect the future? Here’s some discussion about it.

HSLDA has been fairly active in the news this week: parents in South Dakota can give “notice” to the school for absence and do not require to “apply” for their children’s leave. It is also trying to work with New Mexico to remove the daytime curfew bill.

And then the Views!

If you missed my announcement last week, here it is again. My new book Create Your Own Homeschooling Curriculum: A Step by Step Guide is now available for pre order!

Here’s what the back of the book says:

The homeschoolers I know are not content to sit back and accept what a textbook says. Research for them takes up more time than any actual teaching. I will find them in libraries and online groups and message boards, poring over lists and more lists of books. They will go to the conventions, listen to the speakers, unearth books at yard sales and even thrift stores to teach their children.
With this kind of drive, it’s not hard to imagine someone consciously crafting their own curriculum.
If you have a burning desire to create your own curriculum for your children, you have come to the right place. In this book, you will learn the preliminary work that is necessary before you even think about putting something together and then I will guide you step by step into how exactly to do it.

Order it today and it will be delivered to your Kindle when released in May.
