I have seen it work, but I have also seen it fail.
Rarely, have I seen it go Ok.
Home school is a lot more work than the marketing for it shares.
When I consult on a specific case where I am asked if I think that homeschool is good for a child, here are the questions that I want answered to know…
– Would they be prepared if it was 3 times the work than they predicted?
– How are the child’s academic levels? A child who understands the work, but gets in trouble or conflict over the details or structure of the class will do better than others. For example, can I trust that I say, “come back and show me that you learned…even if how you get there is not what I would recommend.”
– Are they running towards homeschooling or away from their current situation?
