2258Re: [alt-ed-india] Home schooling in Bangalore
- Feb 1, 2007Hi -
We live in S Bangalore (BTM Layout) & HS our daughter, age 7. After
experiencing Bhavya for a couple of years and a brief stint at The
Valley School, we decided HS is what works best for us.
I am not aware of many families doing HS here - many do alternative
schooling, but not HS. We follow an eclectic approach - looking at US
Grade curriculum, the Indian System, Waldorf home schooling resources
(of which there are plenty on the web) and of course, feeding on the
strengths of the local community that we live in.
We do have a HS group (with almost 20 kids) next door, who do HS for
religious reasons. We are also friends with another family in N
Bangalore that does un-schooling.
Due to the limited numbers, I am not aware of any serious networking
happening on the HS parents' front. And then you have Bangalore's
traffic to content with :-)
If you are interested, we could meet and exchange thoughts. Do let us know.
Meena and Ramji
