"More Russian families are turning to home schooling in the wake of the three-day Beslan school hostage crisis, during which armed attackers stormed a middle school and took more than a thousand parents, teachers, and children captive. The violent end to that siege left hundreds of hostages dead, and a devastated public desperate to ensure their own children's safety.
Since September 13 of this year, Calvert School in Baltimore, Maryland, has received more than 400 inquiries about its home schooling curriculum from families in Russia and other Eastern European countries. Founded in 1897, Calvert School is an independent, nonsectarian, pre-K through 8th grade school for boys and girls, and is also the first formal home-school curriculum provider in the U.S."
I'm glad Calvert is equipped to assist the interested families; here's hoping that many of these Russian children do come home.
