Summer Stealth Schooling

by Karen D. Koch When asked recently if we do year-round school, I answered, “It depends on what you mean by ‘year-round,’ or by ‘school’ for that matter.” By the time summer rolls around, I’m pretty desperate to catch up on my to-do list, and the kids need a break, so we don’t do much, […]
