Donít Be a TeacheróBe an Educator!
·  A teacher teaches; an educator reaches.
·  A teacher typically focuses on curriculum and
   assessment. An educator focuses on development
   and evaluation.
·  In the curricular race, a teacher perspires. In the
   journey of lifelong learning, an educator inspires.
   (An educator goes the extra mile.)
·  A teacher works with content. An educator deals with
   people.
·  Teaching is a job. Educating is a calling.
·  Some teachers do this to earn. Educators do this to
   learn (about themselves, their learners, better ways
   to inspire, etc.).

Redefining Homeschooling
.
The popularity of home education...advancements in technologyÖthe costs of private education...the need for both parents to work in these difficult economic times...shrinking public school budgets Ė these are just a few of the forces colliding in a volatile atmosphere that may force the redefinition of homeschooling as we traditionally know it.
.
Many of these forces are addressed in the articles above and in the archives. They are building momentum week-by-week and changing the educational landscape. Even states that jumped onto the Core Standards bandwagon are reconsidering what is feasible and desirable given the current conditions.
.

selves to these very same homeschoolers more effectively and lure them back into the system.
.
The result is that the term homeschooling can mean so much more than parent-directed education in the home. Itís vital that we recognize this trend, acknowledge what it means to our educational and parental rights, and stay alert to any redefinition that curtails those rights and freedoms.
