NI District Targets Home-Schoolers

A North Idaho school district plans to launch a program this fall geared toward helping parents who instruct their children at home. The Lake Pend Oreille School District in Sandpoint will host a meeting Wednesday to gather comments from prospective homeschool families. The new program is modeled after efforts in the Bonneville School District in southeastern Idaho. In Sandpoint, the program is expected to launch later this year and would allow parents and students to use computers at the school district for online courses. The Bonner County Daily Bee reports a teacher would also be available to provide coaching/Associated Press. More here.

Question: Do you have a positive/negative view of home-schooling?
