Notes from the Changing World
of Home Education & Basic Skills
Beware of Accreditation
Accreditation comes with a price.
Many years ago a high-ranking employee from the Oregon Department of Education visited Basic Skills. After some light conversation, he posed a question. He asked, “Would Basic Skills consider becoming a charter school?” His question was purely hypothetical because at this time there were no charter schools in this state. He was just “testing the waters” knowing what was on the horizon. I countered with a question of my own.
