Started out as an answer to a problem: A very poorly performing elementary school that was dragging DS down with it.
However it has became a way of life for us. The plan was to get him caught up and then send him to high school. We also planned on getting an out of district waiver for DD after they passed a rule allowing anyone zoned for that elementary school to be moved to another school due to it losing accreditation.
Well I guess its a life choice. I have been "homeschooling" my kids since they were born. Last year when she was the right age to start public preschool she was ready for kinder so we kept her at home and have not looked back.
