An Old Fashioned Education

Homeschooling can cost a fortune if we're not careful.  A textbook plus the answer manual, teacher's manual and test booklet can easily run over $200!  And that's just for one grade level and one subject.  Good grief!  Do they think we're all growing money-trees in the back yard?

Public domain works include those that were published before 1923.  They are now copyright free. This means that the public may download, print, copy and reproduce these texts in any way they please.  For instance, these books can be printed out and used in a small new homeschool that is low on cash but high in creativity.  Eureka!  A solution presents itself. 


My 2 cents.  I love, love, love this site.  There is a full curriculum schedule that can be printed for each child.  Or blank schedules so you can write in your own.  We have used the resources available here for several years and will continue to do so.  Read more about and Old Fashioned Education HERE.  And HERE is a link to view their full curriculum schedules for K-12th. grades.
