Would Homeschooling Work for an Eagle Rock Family?

Some swear the method produces brilliant learners, others say it spells academic disaster.

Would Homeschooling Work for an Eagle Rock Family?

I know parents can be divided into two uneven camps: Those who would love to homeschool their kids and those who think that’s nuts.

Well, I’m of the former camp. I'm really interested in homeschooling—or "unschooling." But it seems as though one of the requirements for homeschooling is a stay-at-home mom or dad who can take on the role of head teacher.

But I’m a freelance mom who sometimes gets called out to jobs at the last minute. What’s the alternative in Eagle Rock? Are there any homeschooling groups or communities out there that can give me some insight?

Yes, I know there are lots of great schools in Eagle Rock—for me that’s really besides the point. In my mind, homeschooling is more about teaching kids to love learning, as opposed to loving school.

What are the pros and cons?

— Eagle Rock Mom Michelle
