I had the pleasure of writing the featured guest post for Penelope Trunk's new homeschooling blog designed to give piece of mind to parents who are considering (or already engaging in) home education. For some, home education becomes a sensible option when parents realize schools are not providing the best opportunities for their children. If this happens these ten reasons explain why leaving school behind may be the best way for children to find success and happiness.
Here are some of the reasons that home ed beats out school.
1. Learning is customized not standardized
2. Associate with those you enjoy rather than those who share your birth year
3. Freedom to learn with their tools
4. Socialize with those who share your passions not just your zip code
5. Do work you value
