The blood, sweat and tears involved in home schooling begs the question: why bother? It is much easier to send our children to public school—let the system deal with the stress. Is all the time, effort and sacrifice really worth it?
Home school makes sense with the bigger picture clearly in view. What can we learn about home schooling from Socrates, Michelangelo, Einstein, and even Usain Bolt? What useful insights are hidden in Jesus’ parables about business and farming. While exploring unique perspectives and untapped possibilities, this book expands the horizons of home schooling while at the same time giving innovative learning solutions.
A pro-active, holistic approach of home schooling produces distinctive results. Research studies offer astounding proof. The home school advantage is that it produces young people who know how to learn, love to learn, and never stop learning.
Without a holistic framework like that presented in this book, home school can easily become a small-scale replica of public education that produces too many fragmented young people without chart or compass to navigate life’s turbulent waters.
