    pass a school placement test - must work out
    beforehand

  • Kohn Academy awards badges
  • What motivates your child?
  • Try to tap into self motivation

    lesser course

    same time? - unusual

    credits as valid?

    for, but no accredited free schools or classes
    that I can find.)
