We strongly believe that home education is a great route, if both the parent and child put in the necessary effort. “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap.“ Galations 6:7-9.
Every state allows you to homeschool your children. However, each state has different rules and regulations. Your child may still have to take a required curriculum, or they may have to take standardized testing. Please consult your state’s Board of Education for more information.
Many school districts will help support you and other home schoolers, by providing textbooks, or rooms to meet in. There is almost always at least one home schooling network in every county. These networks can help you by allowing you to meet with other home educators and swap information and compare lesson plans. The children can meet and gain more social interaction to improve their lives. These networks are a powerful tool, please take advantage of them when you can.
One of the biggest advantage of home education, is the ability to add or change the curriculum. While there are certain standards that a student must meet, there are also varying degrees of flexibility. For instance, one of our students started White Glove Windshields, a windshield replacement company, and is very successful. He started learning skills while studying at home. Many “blue collar” careers are lucrative and something to be proud of. We highly encourage parents to pursue varying arrays of subjects.
There are even online classes and curriculum that can help get you started with home education. Many top colleges such as Harvard and MIT have what they call “opencourseware”, where you can access recorded lessons straight from their classes. You can give your child an ivy league education for free! There are also many other programs available to help you keep your child on track. That is one of the benefits of home education: Your child can learn at their pace. If they are falling behind in an area, you can change the teaching method. If they are excelling in another area, you can give them more coursework and keep them interested.
