Homeschooling "Fans"

Insight Scoop's Homeschooling, It's Not Just for Fantatics Anymore

In their post the reference this article Hoover Institution's Homeschool Goes Mainstream

At the time we decided to homeschool, we were happy with the public school our then 2nd grader was attending. But we knew as he grew older, we wanted him to have good influences from peers and we saw a problem in middle school and high school. We tried Catholic school when he was in the 8th grade and 9th grade. It was tough trying to find ways of paying for an increase in tuition. And, we probably would have made some sacrifices had the religious part of his education been more orthodox.

Our son made the difficult decision for us when he asked to be permitted to homeschool again.

Our son was always a good student. His father and I are convinced that homeschooling has really helped him excel as a student. He did not have to suffer through the peer pressure part of school.

We joke that when he graduates he will be the Valedictorian of his class ;-)

It surely sounds like you made an excellent decision to homeschool your son.

On a side note- I am trying to do more to encourage and promote children's literacy. Please stop in at my blog for a look at some wonderful children's books.

Happy Reading!
