The end of the school year is quickly approaching, and it is during this time that many parents may begin to seriously ponder the idea of homeschooling. Let’s face it. Our schools are in trouble, and if the past tells us anything, it’s a pretty sure thing that no amount of reform is going to change anything in the long run.
Having said that, the benefits of homeschooling are so much more far-reaching than academics that I’ve decided to write a series of posts on many of the advantages of educating your kids at home. While I could easily cover this topic in one very basic article, I don’t think I could adequately do justice to the myriad of blessings that come along with this very important decision of keeping your children at home.
I will be covering topics such as:
- Personalized Learning
- Freedom of choice
- Political Correctness Run Amok
- Centrality of the Family
- Focusing on True Education Instead of Mass Instruction
- Learning from Life
- Following Your Own Schedule
- Time to Follow Interests
- Teachers Are Starting to Give Up
My hope is that this series will enable parents who are on the fence about homeschooling to see the big picture and realize that this commitment is not simply about academics but so much more. I invite you to follow along on this journey of why we should consider homeschooling.
What about you? Can you think of any additional benefits I haven’t mentioned? I would love some feedback on this!
