If you’ve ever thought about homeschooling or just wonder what people make it home school, here is a basic outline.
1. Parents decide to homeschool your child or children. They use their own resources or buy books that they want to use to educate their child. Some states have online applications that can be used at home. When you use the online school you are still enrolled in the local school devices. You just work online from home. Parents who do not use an online application is free to choose the books and resources they feel they need. Students may also have input in the courses to learn what they want to pursue.
2. All students must meet state guidelines. It depends on what state you live in, your instructions will be different. Some countries just need to take attendance. Some people need a letter stating that you will provide 900 hours of instruction and a list of what you plan to teach. And some states require even more. Some states require testing in the schools and some just require evaluation by a certified teacher. Again, it depends on what state you live in and what they need to homeschoolers.
3. Education is now the responsibility of parents. Just as some public schools do better than others, some parents better homeschooling than others. Most parents know their children very well and can do a very good job of helping their children learn.
4. Different styles Learning and personality can now be addressed on a more personal level. Classrooms Public schools tend to cater to the masses, but homeschooling can be more of a teaching environment. Just as no two Public School classrooms will be the same, no two home schools will look like. The personality of students and parents will determine what is taught and how it is taught.
Overall, homeschooling can be a very positive experience for both parent and child. The relationship is the most important factor in determining how a positive experience it can be.
