Re: Home schooling for Cruisers

We're not cruising yet, but we've been on the road for the past two years in an RV. We've got one school-age kid, and my wife has been teaching him using the Ambleside Online curriculum. It's gone pretty well. He doesn't always want to do his lessons, but it's becoming less of a problem. Now that he's started 2nd grade, we're putting more of the responsibility for his lessons on him (instead of us making him do them) and he's responding well to that so far.

We've also run into a number of traveling families that unschool. It's definitely very popular - no curriculum, no milestones, no pressure. I can't speak to the results though.
