Has anyone here used both?
I have 3 sons (4, 11, 13) I am thinking of enrolling in a VA for this upcoming school year. I have already tried K12, and pulled my oldest two out after a month. Mostly because my oldest struggled alot (the math was very hard for him) and some of it seemed pretty advanced for him. My 11 yr old liked most of it, but then we started having problems with the math also, so I just pulled him out because I wanted to try going independent. Now I am missing the ease of the ready curric and schedules, lol.
Anyway, I like how K12 is more of a classical approach and I think it was working well for my 11 year old - he likes to be challenged and gets stuff easily. After reading reviews and looking at the Connections website I love how they use little videos to teach and have access to Brain Pop and Discovery. That is right up my oldest's alley. He loves videos, and loves Brain Pop. And they seem to have a ton of clubs and I hear the curric is easier than K12.
I'm not sure if its a good idea to have the kids enrolled into two different VA's though. And I'm worried about all the online classes you have to take with CA. Or that my 11 year old will be jealous of the clubs that CA has. Anyway, I would love to hear your pros and cons of each and what your opinion is of what I should do. Also, what do you think of this review I found: http://flyingmonkeyshomeschool.blogspot.com/2011/05/louisianas-virtual-charter-schools.html
