  • public. online. therefore I guess homeschooling lol Because I can teach him better than anyone else and I can give him more attention and he can spend more time on subjects he enjoys and I can teach him using his learning style.

  • Homeschool, just as we've been doing for the past 10 years. Why? That's our choice. We want our kids to enjoy learning and to be able to learn about anything that interests them, not be stuck in a curriculum rut. Yes, we do use a packaged curriculum, but we expand on that as their interest is piqued. They don't waste time waiting for other students to settle down in their seats, or stand in line to use the bathroom or get lunch or wait for a bus. They don't have to struggle to keep up or be bored if another student doesn't understand while my child is ready to move on. They have 1 on 1 teacher support from me when they need it, and we can take as much time as we need in order for them to grasp vital concepts. They don't have to fear being bullied or assaulted, yet they are far from sheltered.
