Online PR News – 24-July-2012 – BOISE, Ida. – Boise homeschool advocate, blogger, and small business owner Kevin Harper is recommending that high school or college age students and their parents register for a free webinar series starting Thursday, July 26, 2012 and running through August 14, 2012.
The series, which is sponsored by CollegePlus, a college coaching program popular in the homeschool community, will provide information and discussion on numerous topics of interest to home schooling families.
Harper says that home education doesn't have to stop at the college level.
"Like most homeschooling parents when their teens reach high school, my wife and I had to really do our research to decide on an approach to college that would work for our family. We have definitely become believers in using credit-by-exam, in parallel with online and on-campus courses as needed, for our students to get an accredited college degree."
He says two of his own teens are more than halfway through their bachelor degrees, and will graduate from college debt free with marketable skills.
"With the student loan crisis looming on the horizon, I'm happy to steer my teens away from a path that will saddle them with tens of thousands of dollars in college debt. College doesn't have to be that way."
