Wow! The first two days of school at my college have been cancelled because of weather (snow). I guess I have another day of Xbox Live to look forward to.Seriously though, it is scary trying to drive, all the roads are completely iced over.

How do you like home-schooling?

How does it work? (i.e. who teaches you?)
I get no homework(yay!), nor is any really necessary. As long as I'm understanding the material, I just do the problems in the books. Testing is not necessary in the State of Florida. The laws differ per state (and per country) though, so you'll have to inquire into that. Our family does take a test every year, just to make sure we have records to prove that we are learning. This can include tests such as the CTBS, SAT (which I took this last year) and other tests that are the same as given in a public school.[b said:Quote[/b] ] Homework? Do you test at home or at a local school?
