Learning from People

A day with a writer

Vineeta, a homeschooling mom, shared her experience of writing a book - book with stories of parents, children and teachers.

Small Steps

I would encourage people to look around them in their community and find an organization that is doing something that they believe in, even if that organization has only five people, or ten people, or twenty people, or a hundred people.
