Below is an infographic that was shared with me, and I thought it would be appropriate to post here.
I’m somewhat of a homeschooling fan, as I was homeschooled for 3 years, and I feel like I benefited greatly. Granted, I had an eduNazi mom for a teacher (love you mom!) and I loved school. I think the benefits would mostly in allowing me to move forward at a pace that kept me interested.. When I was excited about a topic or concept, I would get lost in learning about it.
Basically homeschooling capitalized on my piqued interest and let me chase a concept until I was bored with it. I think this facet of our public education system is completely stifled, as students are herded from class to class with specific blocks of time allocated to various curricula. .. okay.. enough of my ranting.
