Time For A Change

For 3 months now, I’ve been watching my youngest son lose interest in school. It’s been a very painful process for me.  This year he is in a specialized program, 20+1, that is supposed to be the greatest thing for students who don’t do well in classroom settings.  The program is designed to be self-paced to a point.

Well, he says that he likes the work, but his grades are slipping. He has problems with a couple of the teachers, and I think he’s given up on even trying.

Over the Christmas break, we’re pulling him from public school and enrolling him in a online, home-based charter school. His mom will be home with him, so she can work with him to keep him focused and on track.  He is excited about giving it a try.

We’ll see how it goes.
