Education is an admirable thing, but it is well to remember from time to time that nothing that is worth knowing can be taught.

Some Practical Advice for New Homeschoolers
Homeschool Central
The thought of homeschooling your children may seem quite overwhelming at first. There are so many questions going through your head. Where do I get curriculum, what curriculum should I use, can I really do this, and of course what about socialization? Let me put your mind at ease. It's not as difficult as it looks.
Presidio of San Francisco
San Francisco, CA
For thousands of years, Native Americans called the Ohlone managed and harvested the natural bounty of what is now the Presidio. In 1776, Spanish soldiers and missionaries arrived, forever disrupting Ohlone culture and beginning 218 years of military use of the area just south of the Golden Gate. The Presidio served as a military post under the flags of Spain (1776-1822), Mexico (1822-48), and the United States (1848-1994). Today, visitors enjoy the history and beauty of the Presidio. Within its boundaries are more than 500 historic buildings, a collection of coastal defense fortifications, a national cemetery, an historic airfield, a saltwater marsh, forests, beaches, native plant habitats, coastal bluffs, miles of hiking and biking, and some of the most spectacular vistas in the world.
Khan Academy
Khan Academy is a completely free educational resource site. Students can make use of their extensive library of content, including interactive challenges, assessments, and videos from any computer.
Only Child Magazine
Only Child is a communication tool devoted to one of the fastest growing segments of our society... only children of all ages. There are an estimated 20 million only children in the United States alone. This newsletter addresses the concerns and interests of only children, their parents, grandparents, and friends. Only Child News explores issues about raising, being and knowing an only child, and provides a forum for questions and answers. While this is not a specifically "homeschooling" magazine, it is helpful for any parent of an only child.
