What grade are you in now? Are you having any problems at your school?

There is a program called it's actually Virtual Online Schooling. Several states provide this program. My kids have been in this program for 2 years now. You will be assigned a teacher and your work progress will be monitored. Every student is given a daily homework plan or a weekly schedule to be completed. All the needed workbooks, books, science material, art supplies, composers music cd, etc... will be shipped to you, along with the computer. It's all free!!! It's actually a public school online. Ask your parents to look at the program. My kids enjoys their history, science, and literature lessons. In these lessons you have links to open up, online flash cards to study for your unit assessments and other fun things to do. Once you have a look at the program you'll see why. You'll be able to connect with other students online and go on field trips. We love it

You can't force your parents to homeschool you. If you really don't like your current school, talk to your parents and tell them why. Maybe you can all come to a compromise about this. It's obvious, though, that if you don't like the school you're in, you're not going to put your all into it. Discuss your concerns w/ your parents. Hopefully they can help you work through whatever difficulties you may be having. Good luck!

I just signed up for this and I noticed this blog...I hope by now you are homeschooling, but if not and you still want to...I would say to pray for your parents daily that they would honor your desire to homeschool...I have been homeschooling my children (5) for 10 years now and I can tell you they are well rounded and very eldest is graduating from highschool in june and has been homeschooled since the 3rd grade, he loves it and has lots of friends and most importantly is grounded in the word of God without outside influences...God Bless you and keep praying and seeking the Lord...
