    OK so I read their explanation & still I’m not sold on the do good stop the newbie fear mentality they are now trying to sell.

    To me it’s clear to start homeschooling reach out & contact a support group.If not in person than online for free. Many of us will yak your brains out for NADA cash. Not spend $30 for a registration/record packet that is not even what you’d get from your Dept of Ed. NO WAY

    As pres of a support group I too get lots & lots of newbies w/ questions…. We give out a shopping bag of assorted curriculum catalogues for free!!!! along w/ copies of the law & local DOE contacts & that for zero $ membership fees at our info nights.

    I’m not opposed to a sampling of curriculum but at $50 & no clue as to what vendors you may get It’s way over priced!!!!! For $50 you can easily attend a real curriculum fair & put your hands on all kinds of materials in person & $50 at a used curriculum table goes a long long way…Along with some great seminars to get advice from homeschoolers in person.

    I’m sorry spending approx. $80 to try homeschooling????? & still not be connected to a local group. That’s alot of $ to most of us on one income….

    & what’s with the pages were only supposed to be seen by paid reviewers?????? More $$$$$. I don’t get it…. the regular public wasn’t to see those pages?????? Homeschoolers aren’t the regular public????

    Sounds like more spin to me I’m still not buying it!!!!
