Are you sick and tired of the public school system? Well, join the crowd, because there are millions of other parents out there just like you. America is falling behind in many key categories because we haven’t trained the next generation of scientists and engineers to be as capable as those in other countries.
Don’t let your kids fall behind. Look at the homeschooling option as an alternative that may work for you and your family.
An ever growing number of thoughtful parents are concerned about the status of public schools in many cities across North America. At the same time, a good number of families are struggling to make ends meet. They simply do not have excess funds available to send their children to private schools.
One solution that many families are embracing is home schooling. With each passing school year, more and more families in North America … indeed, in many countries around the world … are electing home schooling for their children. There are some definite benefits and specific drawbacks to choosing home schooling for your children.
Turning to the positive elements of home schooling first, chief amongst them is the fact that parents have greater control over the education of their children. One of the most significant complaints frequently expressed about both public and private schools is the lack of input and control a parent has over the education of his or her child or children. While there are certain educational standards that must be met when it comes to home schooling, a parent has a significant degree of discretion over how his or her child or children will be taught.
In addition to more control over the educational process, most parents who are involved in the home schooling of their children believe that their children are obtaining a far better course of education.
In this video, Dr. Umar Johnson talks about parents who homeschool their kids in the wrong way. First, he mentions that a lot of parents don’t fill out the proper paperwork and end up being marked truant when their kids don’t show up at school.
Dr. Johnson also says that there are some ways that parents can work together in coalitions to homeschool their kids. He says that if one parent teaches their expertise, they can gather with parents who can handle other parts of the homeschool process on the days when they can’t take off of work. The video is very informative.
Dr Johnson is in the film, “Elementary Genocide,” which talks about the school-to-prison pipeline being promoted in the public school system. When black children are not being educated in the right way, many of them are headed to the penitentiary. Don’t let this happen to your child.
