I came across this really good article “Comparing Homeschooling vs Public Schooling: Ten Reasons For Homeschooling (A Public School Teacher Tells All)“. I think it’s well worth reading, so I wanted to share it with you.
Some of MY reasons for homeschooling are:
It is the absolute best choice for my kids. That is more important than making the best choice for ME.
My kids are not being indoctrinated with a secular worldview.
My kids have a variety of special needs, so homeschooling allows us to work at their own paces, and in the ways they each learn best.
My kids do NOT need the sort of “socialization” found in schools, whether public or private.
We are not tied to a formal schedule. We can take off days for other things as we wish to do so, and we can work school in around life, as opposed to the other way around.
I’m sure if I sat here and thought about it, I could list a whole bunch of other reasons, but these are just the ones that came to mind right now.
Whether you homeschool, or your kids are in public or private school, I hope your choice is being made solely based upon what is best for YOUR children, not based on what other people may think of your decision. It’s not their decision, it is yours. Make it count.
