    Thumbs up Great List of Homeschooling links

    Looks like you have been building up some good links. I'm a big fan of home schooling as an option over public schools, so when I come into a forum and see posts like this I get a bit over excited really

    and when I get excited I start...


    Keep up the good work all

    An Australian book??

    I don't suppose you could PM me with the authors name () so I can find a copy, I love reading things like that! Most I can find however are usually American.

    I've just googled your book and it looks like an interesting read. I read a few of your articles on homeschooling on American Daily and I love your passion for home education! Your article "America's Public Schools --- Deteriorating Like They Did In Ancient Rome" was very good and is actually an argument that I've used many times with others.

    And although it's American based I think that from what I've read it still has a lot to offer us Aussie parents

    I'll have to see if I can track down a copy of it.

    Default Joel Turtel

    Our countries are very good at using each others approaches to public services when they give true indication of saving money. Even if there is a slight decrease in performance the money saving can be justified in certain peoples eyes.

    A UK website which is very good for all subjects is http://www.bbc.co.uk/schools/gcsebitesize/
    It might be a refreshing alternative to using the same websites over and over again.

    Thank you

    Aw glad you liked it there is a few resources on Bitesize that are really good and click with kids for some reason.

    I got warned about my post because its advertising my website which is a shame. Well moderated forum which is good but I do try to help and being an Author of a single book is not much of a business! Put my life into it and get satisfaction back.

    Good enough for and old man like me!

    Joyous Learning - Oz site that also has a great forum which (among other things) facilitates regular face-to-face homeschool meetups in some places.

    The focus is on natural learning / unschooling, though other home ed styles are also catered for.
