Due to the pandemic, our kids, like so many others, were thrust into home learning, with video teaching, online lessons, and a serious lack of nurturing academic achievement. This new chaos in the school system caused us to discuss the option of homeschooling our girls, but we always worried about our ability to give the girls everything we wanted them to have in learning and school. We decided to give it a go.
Since this new endeavor has begun, we learned that one of our girls was very behind in several subjects, which led us to believe that she had been given passing grades without knowing the material. Through homeschooling, we have been able to help her discover a new way to learn that led to a greater understanding, and over the course of 1 year, she was able to catch up on 2 1/2 years of skills and knowledge.
While originally not a factor we considered much, the curriculums and material we hear are being introduced by some educators were alarming. We now know, both at home and at Co-op, who is teaching our kids exactly what they are teaching them, and they are learning at their own pace. We couldn't be happier with our decision to homeschool, as it was the best decision we could have made for our family, and we are so thankful that we found the Light Homeschool Support Group.
