The Opportunity Cost of Homeschooling

Home Educator's Family Times article. The cost... one parent's salary. The benefits... priceless!

• Personalized, one-on-one instruction and attention
• A teacher who loves those kids more than any other teacher would
• Hand-picked books and resources
• Student-led learning and exploration
• No peer pressure or negative socialization
• The opportunity to live and learn in the real world
• Plenty of personal free time in which to grow and learn
• Those are just some of the benefits for my children. There are also benefits for me, including:
• Quantity time with my children, as well as quality time
• The opportunity to really get to know each of my children before they grow up and leave home
• No teacher conferences, PTA meetings or room-parent duties
• Living by our own schedule instead of the local school’s schedule
