How to write a letter to persuade the council to let me homeschool?I’m trying to be homeschooled but the education of the school is saying that i’m too young and i have to be social with people my age i do get on with adults better than children my own age because i’m bullied but if you were writing this letter to persuade him how would you do it? Tips hints etc??My mums wrote to him but she says that i can write one to him!

[display_name id=”1″]I think you have to assume that whoever you’re writing to thinks that they have your best interests at heart. Telling them what you’ve been telling us here OUGHT to do the trick. You’re being bullied, you have no friends, your education is suffering, you’re desperate to be home educated. Tell him about your anxiety attacks. Point out that being social with people the same age is totally artificial and not something that you’ll be required to do as an adult. It’s sadistic to put you through Hell now for such an irrational reason.Really your mum’s letter should cover the educational provision and all the stuff they need to know, but a letter from you won’t hurt and will hammer home the fact that this is what YOU want and they’re meant to care about that.

Questions on homeschooling a child while traveling or living abroad.?I have done a lot of searching and reading of different websites on the internet and through Y Answers, although I still have questions about homeschooling a child while traveling or living abroad.Since my son and I are US Citizens, would I teach him the American Curriculum or would I teach him the Curriculum from the country we will be living in? How do I get into contact with the the person, group, or organization who can give me more information on the homeschooling program? Also who or how do I contact the person, group, or organization that can get me set up and started in being able to home school my son?

For those who will ask, we are going to be moving to the Philippines as my husband lives there. I know for a fact that until he learns the native language he will have a hard time trying to fit into a public school, and there is no way I can afford private International Schooling for him. That is why I want to know how to go about homeschooling him while there, at least for the first couple of years.

Lastly anyone who has been there and done that with homeschooling a child or children while traveling or living abroad … I’d love to hear your stories and any tips or tricks to making it fun, creative and entertaining would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance for any information and/or insight that you can provide to me.
First I wish to thank everyone so far for the replies, they are all informational and leading down the path I am looking for. Now as for the questions:

More Info:

1.I got lost in all the websites on Google when I searched, I wasn’t sure what was and what wasn’t reputable.
2.If I qualify for a Dual Citizenship, then that is the route I will take, otherwise I will be keeping my US Citizenship until 5 years has passed and I am able to become a Citizen of the Philippines.
3.I own no property in the US so I have no residence to maintain in the US.
4.At this time there, is no intentions of ever returning to the US to live.
5.I do have family still that lives in the US and will always live in the US.
6.I was hoping to home school my son long enough for him to become fluent in the native languages so he will be more comfortable in local public schools in the Philippines.
7.Yes home schooling is legal in the Philippines, that much I was able to learn through my searching of google.

[display_name id=”1″]I am from the Philippines. My husband and I have started homeschooling our children in 2001 in the country. Now, we are living abroad and have relocated twice in 2 different countries (Sri Lanka and now, Egypt) and we are still homeschooling using a US curriculum. It is our 5th year abroad but our 9th yr in homeschooling.If you plan to homeschool in the Philippines until high school and send your child back to the US for college, then it is advisable you pursue an American curriculum. There are plenty online. But if you plan for him to attend college in the Philippines, there are homeschool providers in the Philippines using DepEd and US curriculum mix.

There are homeschool networks in the Philippines, best is to get in touch with them and get information that you need. I co-moderate a yahoogroup, PinoyHomeschool. Email: pinoyhomeschool-subscribe@yahoogroups.com . I suggest you join it and check the archives. You may also post all your questions there.

There are lots homeschoolers in the Philippines, both local and foreign, mostly missionaries. It is a growing movement there. There are schools with homeschool departments, too, so there are options you can consider. Most networks by the way are in Metro Manila. There are plenty of support groups with lots of activities and workshops for families and children. Some homeschooling families who live close together in areas also organize activities by themselves.

Hard Scripps spelling words?I need to study for the Scripps National Spelling Bee, and I’m not sure which words to study. Anyone who’s ever been in a hard spelling bee or just has some good spelling words? The words used in the spelling bee are not usually long, so just provide me with short, but difficult ones. Thanks!

[display_name id=”1″]Aside from spending a lot of time reading and writing, which was enough for me to win several spelling bees, I will have to refer you to some sites that provide advice and suggestions for enhancing your spelling skills. Most advise studying your dictionary, playing Scrabble, perusing the Paideia, and scrutinizing the Consolidated Word List:The Consolidated Word List (all words in over 100 Scripps National Spelling Bees, dating back to 1950) Http://www.spellingbee.com/studyaids.sht…
