Homechooler Wins Scripps 80th Annual Spelling Bee

Did you know that only three percent of American children our homeschooled, yet 36 of the 286 finalist for the 2007 Scripps National Spelling Bee were homeschooled. Typically homeschoolers make up 10 - 15% of the finalists in the National Spelling Bee. For more information you can read the story at Daily

Homeschooling is an option that all parents should consider but many can not because they are forced to have two income earners to maintain their homes. Part of the problem is the tax burden that forces both parents to work. For more information on homeschooling go to and the New Hampshire Homeschooling Coalition.

Quote of the day

Homeschooling parents can ignore what are for the most part government directives as to what shall be taught and when. Rather, parents and children can work together to develop courses of study that address long-term needs, interests, and capabilities in the context of what they, and not a bureaucracy of somewhat dubious credibility, deem important and necessary.

-David and Micki Colfax, "Homeschooling for Excellence"
