Why Homeschooling Works
Woodrow Wilson, Thomas Edison & Your Family
Although homeschooling has been a predominant form of education throughout history, many people consider it to be a relatively new concept. They might be surprised to learn that President Woodrow Wilson, Thomas Edison, and our Founding Fathers were all educated at home.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, it is estimated that 1.7% of all students participate in a home-schooling program. A greater number of parents are turning to home schooling as an option for educating their children.
This concept once only included the idea of parents assuming the responsibility of educating their own children. Today, the modern home school has evolved to include the use of computers and other technically advanced equipment to simulate a classroom setting at home.
Homeschooling: The Smart Choice
"Once upon a time, all children were homeschooled. They were not sent away from home each day to a place just for children but lived, learned, worked, and played in the real world, alongside adults and other children of all ages."
A homeschooling program can provide students with choices. It gives them a viable alternative to traditional classroom learning. Whether they choose home-schooling for academic, safety or social reasons, they can be in charge of their education. It enables them to create a customized learning experience.
