"All education is self-education....  We don't learn anything we do not want to learn." We might push ourselves for the extrinsic benefits of gaining certification but that learning is perhaps not as deep or as rewarding as that done through interest and curiosity.

This post contains a great list of possibilities and places to learn. Have you circle of people to support you and the passion and drive?

July 17, 2014Legislative Update

 

Although the legislative session has yet to begin, HEAV wants to alert you to two issues of immediate concern to homeschoolers.

 

HEAV has learned from public records that a school board has submitted a formal, written request asking the Virginia School Boards Association (VSBA) to change the language in the religious exemption statute. This action could have far-reaching effects on the First Amendment rights (free exercise of religion) of homeschoolers of all faiths

 

Also, we have been made aware that another school district has changed its policies regarding how a parent notifies the superintendent that he intends to instruct his child[ren] at home. Requirements that exceed those specified by law create a dangerous precedent that can result in requests for increasing amounts of information and an infringement on a parent’s right to homeschool.

 

Please read the details below and learn what you can do to protect these rights.

 

Regards,

 

 

 

 

 

 

Yvonne Bunn
Director of Legislative Affairs

"To me, blogging is about flattening classroom walls and making connections with the world outside of the classroom. After attending a professional development session with Kathleen Morris (who taught me almost everything I know about blogging) and Kelly Jordan, I had made my decision that I would create a class blog and it would be open for the world to see.

Blogging is about flattening classroom walls and making connections with the world"
