Huffington Post Reinforces My Decision to Homeschool

Such a powerful read in the Huffington Post to reinforce why we are homeschooling.

3. We know that deep, lasting learning requires conditions that schools and classrooms simply were not built for. Yup! That is why I love experiential learning in addition to traditional academics.
4. We know that we’re not assessing many of the things that really matter for future success. Yup! That is why we can customize our kids’ education to incorporate things that do matter.
7. We know that separating learning into discrete subjects and time blocks is not the best way to prepare kids for the real world. Yup! I love how we can make connections in our children’s’ daily lives because we are deeply involved with what they are learning.
