A Web Site for Homeschoolers

(Post: English)
"Thomas Morrow, a serial entrepreneur and former Motorola manager in Asia, thinks he has just the thing for home schoolers: the Internet."

Morrow, 46, founder of Home School in Des Plaines, Ill., says that data-storage technology for home schooling up to now has been PC-based.

"This meant if you lost your hard drive, you lost the records that many states require to prove you're following the curriculum at home," he says.

His online service, offers free lesson plans and a regulatory reporting tool so well backed up, he claims, that only a nuclear strike could knock it out.

Home School pulled in less than $100,000 last year from selling books and educational materials online, but Morrow is forecasting revenue to jump to $1.8 million in 2008.

He has 11 employees now but expects to finish 2009 with as many as 40.

Morrow, who plowed more than $600,000 of his own money into the business, takes home schooling seriously.

This fall, he pulled his 11-year-old daughter and 9-year-old son from school; they're now enrolled at home.
