Homeschooling is a strange alternative for traditional school for Alison Davis, a mother from Williamstown, New Jersey. She is very particular and always wants the best when it come to raising her two children.
For her she has this outlook in life that we are not going to be out in a work environment where everybody came from the same school and with the same age as well. She also thinks that the traditional school atmosphere is not the real world at all.
While homeschooling is the real world for her.
A recent data collected by the Department of Education reveals that homeschooling has grown by 61.8% over the last 10 years. Where two million kids, 4% of the total youth population now enjoys the comfort of learning at their own home.
Some of the parents has this belief that homeschooling produces anti-social outcast. But contrary to this the truth is that some of the most high-achieving and well-adjusted students.According to leading pedagogical research, at-home instruction may just be the most relevant, responsible, and effective way to educate children in the 21st century.
The Key is Personalization
In the book of a veteran teacher and beloved TED Speaker Ken Robinson which is the “Creative Schools: The Grassroots Revolution That’s Transforming Education”. It emphasizes that students learns best at their preferred speed and manner. For all students are unique individuals with their own hopes, talents ,fears and anxieties.
For him, “Engaging them as individuals is the heart of raising achievement.” Robinson wasn’t referring to homeschooling directly, but he might as well have been. No form of education is designed to foster more personalized tutelage.
While traditional schools try their best to tailor lesson plans to individual students, teachers often still end up teaching to the middle. There are simply too many kids learning at different speeds for teachers to give each of them exactly what they need. Homeschooling, meanwhile, is personal by design.
