Two Links

The first link comes from Valerie of Frugal Hacks. She demonstrates that despite what teachers' unions and educrats tell us, it does not cost a lot of money to educate a child. The title is a little misleading because Valerie actually spent only 69 cents to teach her child to read. The other 30 cents went toward teaching her child math.
The second is from Cindy Rollins on the Circe blog. She waxes wise about assessment, which is one of my pet peeves. Our former state required an annual assessment of each homeschooled child, and I can tell you that that requirement hindered rather than helped our efforts to educate our children. Rather than being given the freedom to pursue the education that was best for each child, we were forced to jump through hoops at least part of the time. Counterproductive.
