1979Re: [alt-ed-india] How do I start?
- Oct 5, 2006Hi Malcom,Where are you based? Some time ago there was some talk of a meet in our group, but since I was travelling all the time I never found out if the meet was actually held. But there are certain home-schooling groups that do arrange for meetings regularly -- meetings and camps. There is also a newsletter published from Jaipur. I will let you have the details tomorrow.Aparna

Thank you for your reply. I am encouraged by it!
Is it possible for us homeschoolers, parents and
children, to meet in person: maybe have a camp or some
such event in an informal manner for even a day or
two? May I have your thoughts on this?
