Workshop: Simple Math Difficult Decisions

Announcing a *brand new* workshop for the Homeschooling for College Credit community called “Simple Math Difficult Decisions” and a special aspect of this session is that your teens are invited to attend with you! Taught by Jennifer Cook-DeRosa, this workshop will happen several times this summer!

If the math of college costs seems too big and your savings account too small, you’re not alone. Homeschool families are unique because you’re talking about a group of people who are highly invested in their teen’s education, have exceptionally resourceful parents, and have had to carry the cost of their teen’s homeschool education since day 1.

In this session, we’ll talk about how to use logic and math, not emotion and propaganda, to break down the costs of college and how to make a significant dent in what you pay.

DATES (choose 1)

July 15, 2021 11:00am EST – 12:00pm EST followed by 1 hour Q&A

August 31, 2021 6:00pm EST- 7:00pm EST followed by 1 hour Q&A

Educational Value

“Pursuing high-quality postsecondary education is one of the most important investments a student can make, and is the surest path to the middle class in our country.” The U.S. Department of Education says so, therefore, it must be true. We think it’s true. Well, it’s probably true, right? What’s the alternative? NOT going to college? Too risky. But what if that statement makes assumptions about students that aren’t true?
