I am dealing with an interesting situation. Our teenager has a large number of friends who practically live at our house. He is homeschooled, and they go to public school. His complaint is that their lessons consist of 6-10 problems, and most of his are in the 20-30 question range. Their tests are much shorter as are their quizzes. I have shortened his lessons and quizzes, but have you heard this before from SOS parents? I am not sure public school students are learning anything at all, but our son sees this as very unfair to him.

OK. I\'m guessing AOP available over the internet. Any one else have a guess?

Hi Thomas, Here is Colorado, I have compared my sons\' lessons with that of their public school peers and have found the opposite. They all want to be homeschooled because our day is shorter, we don\'t spend too much time in \"regurgitation\" and tests are less frequent and not as long as the public school kids. I have a freshman and 6th grader. Hope that helps but some questions to ask yourself as teacher, \"is my son learning, is he retaining, is he at the level I want him to be at, is he putting forth effort, and is he self directed?\" Or at least these are some questions I would ask of my students ;)

I think it might be a new subject or updated games or something along those lines.

I\'m thinking all-inclusive curriculum in a self-containted \"laptop\"???

I can\'t figure out what this is.. We use SOS now. Very curious about the new program.

I have worked in the public school system in several states and have had children in it. Until I finally committed to homeschooling. I have dealt with the same complaints about the difference between the number of problems assigned by public school teachers and those in the SOS programs. I have tactfully refused to reduce the number of problems my sons complete. My experience in the public school system tells me that it can not begin to complete with SOS. I remind my sons of the difference in educational quality between their public school experience and home schooling. They agree they are getting a better education now. We decided to stop comparing the experiences and focus on our unique home school experience.

I just pulled my children out of the public school. I\'ve found that my kids spent more time repeating the same information. At no time did my kids have fewer than 25 problems for an assignment and they are in 5th and 6th grade. The number of problems goes up as their grade level goes up too. Sheri

My daughter is nearing the end of her second year of homeschooling. In the beginning of March, she will complete her eighth grade year. I see that this \"new\" change will be released on April 1, 2010. That is a little late for us. I wish I could know before the release whether or not it would be worth waiting for. Would someone please give us some idea of what to expect??

I\'m a student and just started using your stuff. I\'ve liked it so far but I\'ve found at least 4 obvious mistakes and I\'ve just started!!! I\'ve missed answers because of mistakes in your curriculum, and I\'m not just making this up. My mom has looked at this and seen the mistakes herself!!! Suggestion: Have people look over this stuff and do the work themselves before selling material that has typo\'s and misspeakings!
