No set of standards can be perfect, but I think Common Core is a great start - everyone can benefit from knowing what "average" is and what would be required to surpass that, or, decide to hold off until later.

My parents and I want to start homeschooling, but with a professional teacher. Is this possible? And how does it affect college?
thanks so much

We scheduled...
