What Are My Choices? Homeschooling Costs | Homeschooling | HOME SCHOOL | Scoop.it

This particular article is mostly an advert for K12, the "public school at home" program that a lot of people erroneously think is "homeschooling." It is actually a public school option that requires adherence to state regulations. But this article was interesting to me because it says that homeschooling costs can deter some families from homeschooling. Wow.

I guess we spent $25,000 or so over the 21 years it took to educate our two children from K-12. That is about how much it would have cost a typical NJ school district to educate them for 1 year. Meanwhile, during the same period, we spent over $100,000 in school taxes so that everyone else's children could get a "thorough and efficient" education. Am I the only one who is thinking that something is wrong with this picture?

3 creative approaches to homeschooling - by K. Russell - Helium

3 creative approaches to homeschooling - by K. Russell - Helium | HOME SCHOOL | Scoop.it

Homeschooling provides a unique opportunity for parents to take advantage of what they know about their childs strengths, weaknesses, and interests to create more effective lesson plans.

I haven't had a chance to read all four, but this is the top ranked of four articles by the same title by four different authors who each have a slightly different take on what constitutes a "creative" approach to homeschooling.
