There is such a thing as TOO MUCH work–too much for three kids (only one of which is remotely self-directed) who have a very active and adventuresome two-year-old brother. It’s only the beginning of the third week with K12, and I’m already fried. I hate that in order to get through all the schoolwork–even if we skip the lesson work the kids already know and just take the assessments at the end and complete the must-do assignments–all we’re doing is SCHOOL during most of our waking hours.
If you think it’s normal and fine for kids to be warehoused in a school for most of the day and then to have 2-4 hours worth of homework to do when they get home, I guess K12’s workload probably won’t bother you. But it bothers me.
I’d rather go back to homeschooling without the “help” of K12. My kids learn better when we learn together than they do with K12.
Granted, I need help with keeping careful and complete records and sticking to a workable schedule, but K12 isn’t the answer for us.
