Homeschool Program: Education of The Future
The idea of a homeschool program is hardly new. It's been around long and has been acknowledged as a source of some of the brightest people in the country including celebrated names like Thomas Edison.
Homeschooling emerged when parents believed that their local academic programs didn't offer the class and rigor that they desired for their children. Thus they would merely pull the plug on going to a formal education, and instead be tutored by mentors, home teachers, and members of their communities.
What marks many homeschooled children is the independence in terms of selecting what they want to learn. By following a homeschooling program that not only provides a well-balanced foundation in the arts and sciences, but to essentially concentrate in whatever field of interest that they are passionate about, produces genuinely intelligent students who go on to excel vis a vis students in similar formal class programs.
As technology infrastructure expands and as the overseas workforce evolves, Home education presents a further respected option for those who want a dynamic education both in terms of theory and in practice.
Many reasons are cited for opting for Home education. They include but are not limited to religious purposes, disagreements with the local learning environment curricula, feeling of poor grade of instruction in the schools, fear that peer influence will have unfavorable affect on their child's development, and for others it's because of disabilities which require broader avenues for achieving an education.
As you can tell by now, home school program selections are certainly something that can be considered, even though not considered mainstream. It's important to sit down carefully with your child (as his or her choice should be factored into the decision), as well as local school counselors and anyone other families that may have been involved with home schooling programs to some extent.
