-> How long are you in for?

Some families are facing what seems like a lifelong commitment to
homeschooling, with children at both ends of the spectrum -- some
graduating and some just reaching school age. If you're going to
be "in" for a while, consider a lifetime membership with HSLDA.
It's a good deal for families with more than 10 years of
homeschooling ahead.

2. PHC Student: Homeschooled in Taiwan

standing firm where they were planted.

4. Register Now for Spring Constitutional Law Online

Time is running out for students to register for the spring semester
of Constitutional Law Online, taught by Michael Farris, Chairman of
Home School Legal Defense Association and Chancellor of Patrick Henry
College. Registration ends the first day of class, January 5, 2009.
The course concludes June 1, 2009.

If you've always wanted to learn more about the history and background
of our legal system, from a biblical perspective, or if you're looking
for a good U.S. government class for your homeschooled students, then
this class is for you! This internet-based course follows Michael
Farris' textbook, "Constitutional Law for Enlightened Citizens," and
uses a computer-based audio CD-ROM to deliver the "classroom"
lectures. Live chat-room discussions held every two weeks allow
students to pose questions to Dr. Farris.
