Well, I think the dishonesty bothers me much less than the idea of it coming back to bite me in the arse!
This whole "Abeka" thing is so funny! Do you even know anything about that curriculum if they asked more? I've lied when confronted with a sudden scary situation. I did a child pageant when I was ten and in the interview portion a judge said something like, "do you have any athletic hobbies?" I suddenly broke out with "mountain bike riding" which I've never done in my life! Then they asked me what kind of bike I had! I don't even know what I said at that point.
Hopefully no follow up questions to bite you in the arse!
In my state, when a hs kid does 9th at home, then goes to school, the school needs information on the subjects studied to calculate meeting the state's high school graduation requirements.
Here's what I found on Texas' requirements: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/student.a...09_GradBro.pdf
English language arts (Four credits) - English I, II, III and IV or any other comparable advanced English course
Math (Three credits) including Geometry and Algebra I
Science (Two credits) - Biology, Integrated Physics and Chemistry
Social Studies (2.5 credits) - World History and Geography Studies, U.S. Government and U.S. History Since Reconstruction
Economics, with emphasis on the free enterprise system and its benefits (.5 credit)
Academic elective - World History or Geography Studies or a science course that has been approved by the State Board of Education
Physical Education (1.5 credits)
Health Education (.5 credit)
Speech (.5 credit)
Technology Applications (One credit)
Here's the plan of study for the Abeka curriculum in case you want to line that up with his "9th grade" year:
Hebrew History: Kings of Israel
Health (one semester)
World Geography (one semester)
†Physical Education 1
