I have finally decided on a form of homeschooling for difficult child. With the punishment mentality of the schools in our area, I just can't see difficult child surviving there anymore. He's not rebounding from what happened at school #1 last year the way I'd hoped after the summer break and changing to school #2. But then again, they seem to be of the same mentality of school #1. I have heard a lot of good things from parents in this area about Connections Academy and am going to enroll difficult child. It is an online Accredited Charter School. He is excited about it. They even do IEP's so difficult child can continue to get services and accomodations, although changes will need to be made to take out the school setting-specific stuff. At the same time, easy child/difficult child is getting so stressed by all the homework he has every day (3-4 hrs worth) that makes it so that he has NO free time from getting up in the morning to going to bed at night. He said today that he wants to do this too. I will give him another day or two to think about it some more. I don't want him changing his mind as soon as we start. Has anyone here heard of this program? I would be interested to hear if anyone has heard anything or has experience with them.
