What is the future of homeschooling? The future looks bright!
While homeschooling and at-home learning surged due to school closures, parents are considering continuing this educational method in the future. The freedom and flexibility that comes with learning at home are among the many reasons parents list.
Although parents had little time to figure out how to pivot to at-home learning, parents overcame many obstacles thanks to the vast support they found online. Bloggers, vloggers, online classes, and social media platforms offering a litany of support that most parents didn’t know existed until now.
Parents discovered an educational world with the click of a few buttons, and this vast network is expanding every day. Maybe your family will be one of the millions to choose homeschooling in the future?
Ashley Wiggers is back to talk with me about the future of homeschooling.
The Future of Homeschooling
- The mindset of homeschooling.
- Knowing your kids.
- Focusing on the big picture.
I understand all the confusion, stops and starts, and virtual glitches have caused undue stress for many students and their parents trying to stay on pace. At-home learning hasn’t worked for every family. I also know the world of educating children has vastly changed for Americans. But more families are taking a closer look at all the educational options for their children, which is a good start.
