60 The Homeschooling Buzz - College The Smart Way: Higher Education in the Information Age

 

 

In this episode we listen to CollegePlus share the current state of higher education in the information age and provide us with tangible strategies on how to achieve success. The Christian Home Educators of California hosted this free webinar which was inspired from their 2012 Bay Area homeschool convention in Santa Clara where many parents were seeking options for their highschoolers after graduation. The traditional road to college did not appeal to many of these parents. Many parents wanted their children to earn a degree and gain life experience at the same time. However, the question is "what exactly does that look like today?" and "How can we achieve this in a down turned economy?" Well... collegeplus shares some interesting and eye opening insights on the current state of higher education and provides strategies for making this a reality.
