Why homeschool? Why not? Learning at our pace, time to pursue individual passion and time together as a family.
We use a public charter school. They purchase the curriculum that I choose, or I use what they already have in their library. I meet with a teacher once a month. I use it because I like having the oversight, I like knowing that DD is staying on target. I never know what the future will hold, and if she ever had to go to PS, I'd hate for her to be at a disadvantage.
I report to a teacher, and I often take things she says too personally, as more judgmental then she truly means them.

I didn't get a change to read in depth, my kids are calling me to come and watch Ponyo
I think as with any scouting group, the amount of religion varies by the leaders and the needs of the circle. I know for my group, we have almost no discussion of religion of any kind during circle time. That being said, a good percentage of my scouts' parents are in my Coven, so we do talk about it before, and after often times, LOL! It is not a requirement for scouts to talk about, participate in or earn badges that have to do with any religion. There are badges for...
