We are excited about Virtual Schools in the USA
We had resigned ourselves to living in Peru 3 months out of the year. My son just started kindergarten, we thought of going to a state with a year-round program and taking the winter vacation track (Dec-Feb).This would enable us to be in Peru for the summer.
We accidently came up on concept of virtual schools, which means we can live and visit in Peru anytime we would like. Wow, how technology is changing things. I work from a virtual office and have traveled many places outside of the USA, and maintained my job with VOIP and internet connection.
We plan to use my parents address in Pennsylvania next year to enroll my son in a Virtual School (September 2009 ). Then we will be free to travel between the USA and our home in Pimentel (Chiclayo) Peru.
We wanted to pass this information on to expats that are in a similar situation. Though I do not find American schools up to par, I enjoy the mobility that Virtual Schools offer. Then again, I have always believed that eductaion starts at home
