Here is what listeners asked:

  1. Hi ladies, are online high school diplomas okay? I am interested in homeschooling my children and I have found several options for online high schools, from Stanford University in California, to a free online high school in my state, Florida Virtual School… how do colleges react to these types of diplomas? is there a ranking of which ones are the best? Thank you! ~Olga
  2. I’m an adjunct English teacher at a local state university. How can I like grading papers? It’s my least favorite part of the job. ~Celia
  3. What’s the difference between AP and IB? Which one should my son take next year?   ~ Anonymous
