Homeschool cooperatives

A Homeschool Cooperative is a cooperative of families who homeschool their children. It provides a chance for children to learn from other parents who are more specialized in positive areas or subjects. Co-ops also provide social interaction for homeschooled children. They may take lessons together or go on field journeys. Some co-ops also offer events such as prom and graduation for homeschoolers.

Homeschoolers are beginning to utilize Web two.0 as a way to simulate homeschool cooperatives online. With social networks homeschoolers can chat, speak about threads in forums, share knowledge and tips, and even participate in online classes by blackboard systems similar to those used by colleges.
