As a homeschooling parent, I would like to raise awareness of the benefits and challenges of homeschooling your children.
National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI) suggests that there are over 2,3 million homeschooled students in the United States, and even though the form of education appeared to be “alternative” a decade ago, it’s now becoming main stream in the United States. Research also states that the home-educated typically score 15 to 30 percentile points above public-school students on standardized academic achievement tests (nheri.org 2019). Even though there’s various reasons for homeschooling, my experience is that families who choose this path for their children wants a more “hands on” education”, and a more individualized curricula and learning environment for their children.
