Homeschooling vs. Schooling at Home

Teaching public school curricula at home directly as a parent or through distance learning online is vastly different from homeschooling.

Parents are scrambling to get a computer or tablet so their kids can school at home, with the packet (curricula) provided by their child's teacher. This is not homeschooling; this is schooling at home. It is important we name the difference because educators are already trying to claim parents aren't qualified to teach their children, and after the dust settles and if parents and students who had schooling at home forced upon them underperform or no-show, public educators will, in a massive show of inability to think critically and logically, will conflate that with “see, parents are not qualified to teach.”

Want to learn how to homeschool, for real?

Homeschool is not easy, but it is simple

All things simple are hard. Homeschooling is no different. It takes two minutes to understand homeschool, a lifetime to master. Perseverance, humility, and kindness (most especially to yourself) are key.

Homeschooling outperforms public and private schooling

Why? The reasons are numerous, but kids thrive under personalized attention, and parents are best equipped to discern what that is for each child and provide it. Catholics are called to be their children's primary educator, and homeschooling is a beautiful way to achieve this. Homeschooling engages kid's natural curiosity and cultivates their desire to learn into ownership of learning. Homeschooling teaches kids how to think, not just absorb facts for a test, only to regurgitate and forget them. Homeschool educates the parents as much as the kids, and each helps the other learn and think better.
