Princeton Learning Cooperative

Over the years, I've seen many teen homeschooling families turn to brick-and-mortar schools for high school learning. Sometimes it's because the teen craves increased peer interactions. Sometimes it's because the parents need to work outside the home or feel unprepared to mentor high school learning. Sometimes it's a combination of all three! Often, those families wish they could find the support they need without sacrificing the personalized learning piece of homeschooling.

If this sounds like you, the Princeton Learning Cooperative (PLC) could be the solution you seek. Check out this PLC Documentary created by PLC'er Konstantin von Schroder.

Full disclosure: I happily serve on PLC's Advisory Board.

Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham

Should evolution be part of the science curriculum? How about creationism? I'm looking forward to hearing the pros and cons during tonight's debate between Bill Nye the Science Guy and Ken Ham. The debate will be live-streamed at debatelive.org at 7 p.m. Afterward, I invite you to continue the conversation in the comments section of my blog--did the debate confirm your position, change your position, or leave you questioning your choices?
