VaEclectic: the meeting place for Virginia's diverse homeschool community since 1999.
VaEclecticHS is a large, active, fully inclusive list for in-depth discussion of issues affecting homeschooling, and for news about media articles and programs, proposed legislation, research, conferences and other information of interest to Virginia homeschoolers.
The One Non-Negotiable Rule
No: spamming, flaming
, proselytizing, or partisan politics, and no advertising or selling of anything
whether homeschool related or not.
What Homeschoolers Say About VaEclectic HS:
"I am so glad...that I have found this forum that encourages and promotes self investigation and empowerment. I am still amazed daily by the vast amount of knowledge and confidence and parenting skills that come out on this list from the moms and the dads here. What an incredible forum...that allows such a free exchange of ideas, fears, and opinions so that we all can learn from each other."

VaEclecticHS is the rebirth of Shay Seaborne's
VaEclecticHomeschool, which was vaporized in July 2005
as part of "deactivating" Shay's Yahoo ID-- apparently due to a bogus Terms of Service complaint intended to silence the inclusive homeschool community in Virginia. Like the Phoenix, VaEclecticHomeschool rose out of the cyber-ashes and became VaEclecticHS. Welcome!
