This was emailed to me and I thought I would share it with all of you.

Hi Kim,

I saw your post on homeschooling and wanted to throw the Saylor Foundation's hat in the ring!

We do fully-articulated courses across the curriculum -- free and online, with minimal hoops to jump through. We also invite and expect people to use the courses in ways that are tailored to their own needs.

We also just launched our K-12 courses -- we went live with what we have ready, but we're going to fill in 6-12 ELA/Math, then double back and work on K-5 -- with other subjects possible in the future. We hope that homeschooling families will find some use for these!

Everything can be found quickly via www.saylor.org

I welcome any questions you may have!
