I’ve mentioned the Mises Academy on the homeschool email lists I read as a resource for education. Hopefully, that will bear some fruit.

My own kids are much too young to take the classes, so please continue for at least 10 more years, ok?

Mises willing, I will. :)

I would still rather read a book than take a class. I can spend more time with some chapters, and less with others. I can read faster than a professor can speak.

For interaction, I can post questions to the Mises forum and eventually be part of a small group within the forum, all of us familiar with each other and interested in learning.

I’m reading a textbook about Entrepreneurship now. A professor wouldn’t add much value, especially since professors wrote the book. The book’s end-of-chapter quizzes, exercises and case studies help me learn the material. The only thing missing is discussion. A forum on enterpreneurship, or simply a reading group, would work.

Come to think of it, I’m going to check the Amazon.com discussions about this book.
