Re-post: Is it Time to think of Homeschooling Your Child?

This article is long, but I highly recommend you read it.  It was posted in the Orlando Sentinel by Jack Chambless   For the past 21 years I have taught economics to more than 14,000 college students here in Central Florida.

My Favorite Argument (a funny post)

My Favorite Argument (a funny post)

One of the favorite things people tell me when I try and explain the way I’m doing college is… “Well, how are you ever going to find a spouse that way?  I met my husband/wife at college!” Now I have NOTHING against meeting your spouse at college.  My parents met at college.  It’s a great place to meet guys and gals. But if that’s the ONLY reason I’m going to college (and the only reason you can think of for…

June Updates and July Goals

June Updates and July Goals

June Updates My goal for June was to finish 2 CLEPs.  The Natural Science and the Social Science and History (SS&H).  Due to a number of factors, that involved my proctor having serious surgery, schedule constraints, and some basic unpreparedness, I was only able to finish one of those tests.  On Friday, June 29th I took and passed SS&H.   While I am disappointed that I never got to Natural Science, I am trusting that God has a plan for me…
