Cyber School is Homeschool for Parents Who Don’t Want to Teach School Curriculum

Modern education and online learning

I have the utmost respect for parents who homeschool their children. I wish I had made that commitment many years ago when my children first became school aged. Unfortunately, I didn’t and I sent my kids to public school.  Elementary school went well and I really liked their kindergarten and first grade teachers.  I felt [...]

Just a thought…

I think that most people feel that our schools are in decline. School society seems corrupt in so many ways. Everyday we seem to hear in the news about all sorts of abuse going on in school. We have bad teachers and students bullying our children. Students are having their civil rights and religious beliefs [...]

Cyber and home schooling makes for a better education. Why do I say this? Children are so used to being spoon fed every bit of information in brick-and-mortar public school that they don’t have the faintest idea where to start when they have to gain knowledge for themselves. For example, my son was a straight [...]

Everyday, we see what happens when we give the government tyrannical control of our children. Look at the news from this week alone. We had a teacher tape a student’s mouth shut, [...]

“Gun Free Zones” and Public Schools

Unknown

This whole idea about public school being a “gun free zone” is irresponsible. Banning guns for law abiding citizens does not create a safer situation. It actually creates the exact opposite. How many more school shootings are we going to allow before something changes? Common sense would tell you that labeling an area “a [...]

Media is Prejudiced About Cyber and Home School

Don’t let progressive blogs and news sites prejudice your view on cyber and home schooling. It seems that most of the negative opinion comes from liberal and progressive media outlets because it is in their best interest to denigrate school choice. These news sources have historically propagated the public school system because they have a [...]

Why Accreditation of your Cyber Charter School is Important

What does accreditation mean?

Accreditation means that a cyber charter school has been approved by a state recognized, independent agency, which has determined that the cyber charter school meets accepted standards that have been developed for all schools seeking accreditation. These standards address the rigor of academic programs, the processing of academic records, business [...]
