Group Description

Hi, you don't know me, but I relocated to Colorado after Hurricane Katrina. I learned something very interesting about home schooling. They have a home school program here where children are considered part of the public school system. They receive books and the curriculum for free, and a computer to use for $20 a month until paid for! They receive the same education tailored to them at their own pace with on-line instructors and classes. They also provide support by phone if the child is having difficulty understanding something. It is called Connections Academy. It is a wonderful program offered in ten states. Why doesn't Alabama have it? I asked Connections Academy and they said the only thing keeping them from being available in Alabama is State Senate approval. We have to request it from our senators. The school gets half funding, the other half funds our child’s books and fees. Even better, our children can attend extra curricular activities at local schools, such as band, chorus, football, etc... I think that this is a wonderful compromise between sending our children to substandard schools or home schooling them without peers. If you agree, please, write your senator and pass this along. Georgia is currently fighting for this program in their state. For more information, you can visit the website at www.connectionsacademy.com

I don't work for this organization. I am just a mother who home schooled my daughter at my expense to keep her out violent schools that failed testing.
