The Homeschool Classroom SettingWritten by Mary Joyce
If at all possible, homeschool education classroom setting should be a specific room, or at least an area of home. And even better, this room or area should only be used for your homeschool education organization. Itís important that your students associate this room with that of focus and learning. If a separate area for home study schooling is not possible then make sure area you do use is free from clutter and other non topical material that could be distraction when home school is in session.
Allowing for, and keeping your homeschool classroom organized is also a key ingredient for success. Not only should you provide for your organizational needs but letís not forget about childís homeschool supplies and materials too! Be creative with space you have. You donít need a big budget to get your classroom organized and setup. Use various sizes of boxes for cubby holes. Even bigger boxes could serve as partitions for room! These boxes can even be painted (instead of your walls!) and have educational accomplishments even stuck on themÖ. You get picture! And, if needed, at end of each day they can be folded up and put away!

Shortly after invasion of Iraq by United States, economy began to falter and there was ultimately no conclusion to this invasion as United States pulled out after quickly declaring a victory. Compare this to current Iraq invasion. The United States' economy was doing very well during Clinton administration. There was even a surplus of billions of dollars instead of usual deficit that this country has seen so often. Unfortunately, terrorist attack on 9/11/2001 prompted current President Bush to first launch attacks against Afghanistan where it was believed Al-Qaeda was headquartered. Next, President Bush chose to attack Iraq for various reasons -- weapons of mass destructions, ties to terrorism, etc. Thus another war with Iraq and United States began. Since then surplus of US economy has disappeared and is currently at a deficit. The United States found no weapons of mass destruction and has never found Osama Bin-Laden. Fortunately, Saddam Hussein was captured. Now
