Homeschooling an option, 29 April 2008, The Justice — The Independent Student Newspaper of Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts
There are many ways people homeschool and many types of homeschooling. While there are homeschooling environments that imitate regular schools with strict schedules, in which the parent teaches a set curriculum to his or her children, there also exists a homeschooling method, unschooling, in which children decide what to learn and when to learn it. Unschooling focuses on the learning and education of the individual rather than pushing a curriculum on the children.
Homeschooling is becoming more popular today due to bad experiences with traditional schools or just because parents think it’s an excellent option for learning. From my experiences I agree with this assessment and would not want to give my future child anything but the best education, which, in my opinion, is homeschooling.
