Great to hear from you. It would nice to meet up sometime.

I suppose not feeling qualified is rather silly, objectively, but it's something I contend with a lot. As I told my therapist, "I want to revive my Spanish, but that makes me think I need to revive my never-was-any-good Latin. But the prospect of revisiting Latin just reminds me that I really should learn Ancient Greek before I do anything else."


The online school where Skylar is enrolled definitely has standards. It's actually quite difficult in terms of time commitment. But the teachers are overextended and the lessons vary in quality. Basically, unless you are already gifted at a subject or have access to good tutoring, it would be very difficult to succeed. I also suspect that it's a profit-making venture of the sort we wring our hands about, but have no concrete evidence of that.

On the other hand, without this option for her to make progress while healing at home, her future would have looked very dark for a while. So I'm grateful that this opportunity existed and wouldn't want to see it eliminated on ideological grounds.
