    Is she looking at complete homeschooling or a charter school? My son did that charter school thing after bullying went too far and he did fine.

    Oops! Sorry. A charter school is a public school that assigns your work to you to complete at home, offers tutors, and on camus classes if you want. You turn in your work to the school and test at the school and get your books from the school, but you do your work at home. It is less pressure on your mom too.....

    ETA: they are usually very small campuses too. My son's charter school has about 20 rooms on the whole campus...
