Homeschool parents seek charter school in Medford
A group of parents who homeschool their children submitted an application today to found a public charter school for homeschoolers in the Medford School District.
Logos Charter School organizers say they want the K-12 school to serve as a guidance and resource center for parents and to allow homeschoolers to earn regular diplomas from the Medford district rather than GEDs.
The curriculum would be based on state standards, and students would be required to take the same state and local academic assessments that other Medford pupils have to take.
I can not address this group of parents’ decision to engage with public schooling. I do make the judgement that if you enroll in a Charter School and “curriculum would be based on state standards, and students would be required to take the same state and local academic assessments that other Medford pupils”, this is public schooling. Please don’t call it homeschooling.
