Group Description

This is an inclusive Yahoo group for *home educating parents, and those looking to home educate, throughout the Metrowest Boston area. Members are invited to make connections, share support and information, and engage in home education related discussion.

While anyone may join, to keep the integrity of this list’s purpose, only the aforementioned parents may post. Posts should include relevant information and the poster’s name (only first name required).

Please do take the time to introduce yourself with a couple sentences including your living area, child’s/children’s age(s), and anything else you wish to share.

Thank you for respecting and building our community. Enjoy!

Notes below – please read:

I use the term home education to refer to homeschooling. This list was created with the term homeschooling, but that term is not accurate as it implies that all such families ‘school’ their children at home. This, of course, does not describe many families who are unschoolers or who otherwise practice family-directed living.
The list name may change in the future.

*Home education (aka homeschooling) = PARENTS having jurisdiction over the education of their children. It is a legal choice to not be enrolled in government or private schools.
Home education is not public brick and mortar, virtual public, virtual charter (which is public), private school (including Sudbury Valley), 'after' schooling, or other non parent-directed schooling.
Location is not the deciding factor. It all comes down to being or not being enrolled/under the direction of the government or private school.
Educational choices are only increasing over time and it is wonderful that each family makes choices that they feel work for them. However, home educating families have unique situations. We've chosen to leave the system, even if only temporarily. For a variety of reasons, we’ve decided to direct our own educational paths.
Thank you for understanding.
