Do you know any good online home schooling programs? Please, we desperately need help!

Take a look at the k12.com website. Many public schools that offer virtual schooling use their materials. Before I began authentic homeschooling, I used K12 via a public school for a much younger child (1st grade), but K12 offers materials on the high school level too.

The link is below:

I hope this helps.

Is there any legal obligation to do any online home business of USA/UK from India ?

In now a days, online home business of other countries like USA/ UK are easily available and anybody from any country can earn money in dollars. I like to get the right answer from a person who knows about the international rules and regulations to start any online home business.

For
Goods, merchandise etc. There must be some legal obligations.
Otherwise, non-physical services via Internet, may not have any legal obligations. But you must check before actually going ahead.

I've researched this subject *in-depth*…unless you live in a state/country that pays for such, there are no *free* online homeschooling sites – and, many of them that are online are *very* expensive…

However, Time 4 Learning is for up to grade 8 and is only $20 per month – they are *excellent* – my son did that from grades 6-8, then entered public high school this year and got a 95 on his first report card….here's their website:

http://time4learning.com/learning-middle-school.shtml

if you're in grades 9-12, one of the leading, most accredited, and least expensive ones out there is The Global Student Network. It's a whole lot more expensive than Time 4 Learning – yet, it's a whole lot *less* expensive than every other site i've ever come across for grades 9-12…it's $625 per year – but seeing as your mom's a surgeon, that shouldn't be too tough on her financially…

If i were you, i'd look into it first yourself, and then approach her with the idea….here's their website:

http://working.homeschool.com/resources/GlobalStudentNetwork/default.asp

btw, if you go to the bottom left of the page, that is the area you're looking for…although it says “parent in charge”, in reality, you can do everything yourself – it only means that your parent is able to monitor your progress and grades, and obtain the answer keys to the tests!

Sandy asks…

Are there any free online home design tools that work like the Sims games?

I played the Sims for years…only to creates houses on it. I'm looking for a free online home design tool. I found some that come close, but aren't what I'm looking for. I want one that will create a roof for me, let me design the interior, exterior…etc. Not just blue prints and layout software.

What online school does require a parent (to be present)???

Okay, having homeschooled all my life, I have never heard of an online school that requires a parent to be physically present, there with you, looking over your shoulder, in order for you to enrol. The forty or so online schools that I know about (in Australia and Britain) only ask that you should have a parent (or govie) at home who is willing to act as a point of contact for the online school. They're not expected to physically be in the house with you 24/7 whenever you're doing school any more than any day school expects your parent to be in the classroom with you! Once you become a teenager and therefore ought to be capable of organising yourself, online schools just want to know there's a parent around so they have a named person to contact if, for example, you stop turning in your work etc; and to cover their arses legally.

If your mum's happy for you to be ‘home alone' with just the computer for company and lessons to occupy yourself whilst she's at work, that's between you and her. She can fulfill her obligation to ‘supervise' your schoolwork simply by asking you how it went and whether you had any problems once she gets home from work.

Anyway how on earth are they going to know?!? Have a magic chip hidden in their computer!?! They ring unexpectedly, you just don't answer the ‘phone; or answer the phone, apologise and tell them she's in the lav or in the shower; or too busy working herself to talk to them right now and tell them to try again later…

P.S. The only companies offering ‘free' cyberschools that I've ever come across are:
i) K12 (but only for residents of certain US states);
ii) Kaplan (allegedly); and
iii) Connections Academy (but again, only available free in certain US states)
