I just wanted to alert everyone about a great website I heard about on HLN about a week ago.  The website is called www.khanacademy.org.   It is a free website that will teach anything you want to know about any subject.  It is being used by schools in California and homeschoolers across the nation to help children learn.  It tracks the student's progress and provides lessons and videos to help achieve proficiency in many subjects.  The website is being funded by Bill Gates from Microsoft.   Please check it out.  It can be used by anyone who wants to broaden their knowledge.

 

Happy Reading and Learning!!!!

Subject: Agreed!
