So far it's only been a few days that my daughter has done her online school work. So far, so good. Here are a few of my favorite things:

1. all books provided

2. many of the supplies provided

3. teachers assigned

4. I don't have to set curriculum or lessons (though I do miss this too!)

5. my time is freed up

6. she is learning scheduling, and time management

7. she is learning to adjust to the "system"

8. will be an easier transition if she does transfer to public high school next year

9. parents still involved as learning coaches

10. no tuition--FREE!!
