Liberty’s Kids Released

Posted by Annie on Oct 16, 2008 in Education

At last has begun to ship. As promised on October 14, 2008 Amazon began shipping out DVD’s. We can expect to see them start arriving in our mailboxes soon. I’m so excited.

Liberty's Kids - The Complete Series!

If you don’t receive your copy in the mail this week, just be patient. About half of the pre-ordered copies have shipped so far. I’m certain the rest will be shipping soon. I’m so pleased to know that so many children will be watching this wonderful children’s history program.

I can’t tell you how disappointed I was when I tried to purchase the complete series last year, only to find it was selling for $400.00. The DVD’s should be available in stores now for $59.95 but Amazon has made it available at the discounted price of only $44.95, a terrific savings.

It’s not too late; if you haven’t ordered , please don’t wait. We have no way of knowing just how long it will be available.

Just in time for the “Back-to-School” crowd and those who live by the clock. I thought this video was very appropriate. Leave it to the British to tell it like it is. The only thing I can add to this is: Exactly!

Who needs the Department of Education?

Legality of Homeschool

Posted by Annie on Jul 10, 2008 in California

Do you ever wonder where journalists get their information?

Many homeschoolers in California are still concerned over the legality of homeschooling in California and have been waiting somewhat impatiently for a ruling from the Second District Court of Appeals in Los Angeles.

In an article published in the Union Democrat, July 10, 2008, "Homeschool parents await judges’ decision," reporter Lacey Peterson reported that:

"The court’s decision has no bearing on students who attend charter schools or programs like the Home School Academy in Murphys, which runs out of the Vallecito Union School District. However, it could affect parents of homeschoolers."

Obviously, Ms. Peterson didn’t bother to do her homework or to actually read the court documents, as most of homeschooling moms have, because this statement simply is not true.

The children involved in this case were enrolled in an ISP. The judge who ruled in the case made it very clear that the children were to be taught by a credentialed teacher, not by the child’s mother. Even children, who are enrolled in one of the hundreds of state-sanctioned charter schools, are traditionally taught at home by a parent; not under the constant supervision of a credentialed teacher. With this in mind, I can’t fathom why this reporter would think that the decision wouldn’t affect charter school members.
