"'Education is the Science of Relations'; that is, that a child has natural relations with a vast number of things and thoughts: so we train him upon physical exercises, nature lore, handicrafts, science and art, and upon many living books, for we know that our business is not to teach him all about anything, but to help him to make valid as many as may be of––
'Those first-born affinities,
That fit our new existence to existing things.'"

Charlotte Mason, A Philosophy of Education
with a quote from The Prelude by William Wordsworth

JourneyEd homeschool discount

Did you know that many software companies offer deep discounts to teachers and college students?

JourneyEd is an academic software vendor that carries these products, though they, like most vendors, require proof of academic status. While I was looking over their purchase requirements page, I noticed that they offer their products to homeschoolers, too.

Home Schooling:
Those who are home schooling must provide a valid photo ID, and a copy of one of the following:

  • Letter of intent to home school addressed to local school district for current school year.
  • Home School Legal Defense Association membership card.
  • Home School Charter School membership card.
  • Book/curriculum receipt for the current year.

They have Adobe Acrobat 9 Pro for 99.98 until the end of the month!
