think that Americans will some houses on foreign language in grammar school each child learns differently and so you can pick curriculum that will work for each individual child so that they can have the best successful I think in the public school we tend to teach everyone the exact same curriculum in the exact same way you can also get a lot more done in a tutoring type setting than you can in a public school classroom setting and so that frees up a lot more time for

the children to follow some of their other interests every school district has different rules of overseeing home schoolers so you might have one community that demands nificant amount of information about home schooling program in order to be approved and then you have others we just need to send in a letter of intent at the beginning of the year my particular town I put together a portfolio and my children's work rather than doing standardized testing some
03:31
school districts do require standardized testing and then you can either do it individually at your home or you can sign up at your local school to have that done you can get together in co-op groups and have this someone who has been approved to administer the test for our home school to kids that are going through high school there's main opportunities for them to advance they can take Advanced Placement AP courses and that is for dual credit in high
04:04
school and college they also because it's a standardized test for anybody in the country who takes that AP class it shows that they can handle we're not handle depending on what the grade that they get college-level work not at all most homeschooling families live on one income but they're committed to what they do and they make it work so for example shop or our lessons or theatres any of those opportunities that we want our children to be able to

participate in we generally have to pay for so it's generally more difficult for the homeschooling family financially because you want to give your student a well-rounded education but you know obviously I'm not equipped to teach them every single subject do you think you if you want to go your kids can participate in any of the sports or activities that they have in the public school because you pay taxes now I don't believe that it's an equal education I think it's far

above the public education that's why we do what we do we want to provide them with something better there are actually organizations that plan special trips and projects just for homeschooled kids so you can go to MIT and take special science classes my voice last year participated in a project with the University of New Hampshire marine vessel and held together

scientific information for every oceanography project last year we got together with about 10 other students homeschool students and we did a dissection less so my 4th grader and my ninth grader dissected four different animals socialization is probably the number one question that people who do not understand homeschooling asked what are you going to do about socialization
06:16
for us sitting in a classroom with 2050 20 kids all you're saying age isn't really socialization it's not the real world so for us we we prefer that our children learn time in Iraq move little children elderly adults and spend time with all age groups of children that's coops there's tutorial classes there's field trips as playdates the list goes on and on so socialization is really probably the least thing that we worry about my

kids were public scible last two years and I actually thought I wanted to observe a couple plans and I actually feel that a lot of the socialization in school is negative kids who get along great all this small group looking up the narrative group of 25 kids and will ostracize and pick on certain kids some of the kids are pushed into things that are much too old for them and the very age and they're not allowed speech told her this long they're not sitting at a

desk from eight to three but we do start early in the morning and oftentimes we're still going at dinnertime one of the beauties of homeschooling is being able to adjust the school schedule to what fits for your particular family so if you have like a dad who works later in the day and your children want to see him they can spend time with him in the morning and school later on that afternoon my oldest daughter has been sick for over a year and she needs more sleep so
