HOMESCHOOLING, is it a good alternative? Do you feel you could successfully educate your child? These are questions that many parents ask themselves.
I have been working with students for the past 17 years. Unfortunately, I see many children who are being dragged through public school, not really getting it, but forced to keep going. There are many things that go awry, with their education. Today's schools are too full, understaffed, and missing the extra help needed for students. Teachers are doing their best for the most part, but can't cover all the bases.
Example - I have a student we will call Ted. He is in 5th grade and is being threatened to be held back. He learns new concepts in his studies almost daily. The crime here is that he never really does each concept enough times to really learn it. Do this again and again, and we get failing students. We get confused students. We get stressed students. We get uneducated students.
Solution - One answer to this problem is homeschooling. Homeschooling has no real time limits. Concepts can be reviewed, drilled, exampled, and done until the student feels great about the concept. Imagine math learned in this way.
Have you looked at some of the math and language arts books that most kids use in class these days? OMG! I have a wonderful 3rd grader who, can't really understand her math question unless I help her understand the question. How do you do your work with that problem? In most homeschool books, the questions are written in simpler terms and as such, are easier to understand and do. They accomplish what we need, teaching our students to actually learn their math.
Is your student struggling in school? Do these ideas make sense? Does your child need help? Homeschooling may be a solution for you. Would you like to help educate your child in life learning and academics? You can do this!
Now, the big problem? Time and scheduling, right? In my BLOGS, I have another one talking about this situation. It can be done. Working moms and dads can do this.
It takes creativity and organization, but it can be done. Pool your resources with your friends and neighbors, get a small group together. If needed, use a tutor for a few hours a week. The rewards are great and very worthwhile!
