Many parents erroneously think this, even highly educated ones. But the data consistently shows homeschooled kids performing better on academic tests than their public-school educated peers regardless of the parent’s formal training or college education. Parents today have an endless variety of quality K-12 curriculums to choose from. The homeschool movement is highly sophisticated with countless organizations whose mission is to provide tailorable teaching materials for every grade level and need. The world of online courses is also available. Parents can choose from these options to build their own curriculums or pick from pre-packaged courses designed to comply with state standards, but with quality and child-safety in mind. Many parents team with others to form coops, or private school satellite programs (PSP). Whether you decide to teach your child directly or function as an Administrator for packaged or online curricula, you will not be alone!
