What is Homeschool?

Homeschool is, quite literally, school that takes place at home. But what does that actually mean?

  • It means that parents get to have direct influence on what their children are and are not taught.
  • It means that you get to pass on your unique worldview to your child – what you want them to learn in school besides reading and math.
  • It means that you can create your own schedule and your own way of doing things, that will best help your children – because who can know them better than you?
  • It means that you no longer have to wonder what in the world happened at school – because school occurred right in the safety of your own home.
  • It means that bullying, harassment, and the mimicking of bad behavior can all be avoided. (Or at least minimized, siblings do have a way of terrorizing one another 😉.)
  • It means that government propaganda doesn’t have to enter your child’s mind.
  • It means that the state can’t influence your children with ideals you don’t agree with.
  • It means that your children will not be held back by slower peers, or pushed ahead by quicker peers. They will get to learn at the speed best suited for them.
  • It means freedom.

Homeschool doesn’t mean:

  • Your children will not get social interaction ever again – They will definitely get social interaction, it just won’t be at school! (Think summer camps, clubs, sports, extracurricular activities, 4H, etc. Also, most states allow homeschoolers to play on public school sports teams.)
  • You yourself, as the parent, will die – whether death for you means not having any time to yourself, having to teach your children calculus, or going broke buying textbooks, I can assure your survival! The Ron Paul Curriculum is 98% self-taught above grade three, and there are no textbooks to buy, (plus there is a 100% money-back guarantee.)
  • Your child will become stupid – Not true! Homeschoolers are actually statistically smarter than their public school peers. Here’s a screenshot to prove it:
