Anyone care to elaborate why they would use a secular curriculum like this?

Also, she was apparently going under another name, Meghan Greenfield, a couple years back, looking to exchange vegan curriculum for room and board. She now uses the name Molly Stanley. I, too, thought about ordering a course, just to see, and after I exchanged some e-mails with her I had a horrible creepy feeling. I trust my instincts.
As a mom who believes in Whole Life Education, I am a little disappointed in myself for even looking into a formal curriculum, such as that one. It's scary to be an "outsider" in this world and as a mother I want my children to have the best and of course "fit in". However, here is yet another example of just how dangerous the world and especially the internet can be. You can not trust these people.
Follow your heart, that's where your kids are, anyways....
Best regards, and oh yeah, we're new to this forum! Glad to be here!
