Homeschool benefits have only recently been legal in all 50 states since 1996 and many considered it a "fringe" movement. But that is changing ... In 1973, approximately 13,000 children between the ages of 5 to 17 were homeschooled in the U.S. But by 2012, that amount had grown to nearly million. And some reports depict the number is actually over 2 million. Sam Sorbo is an actress and radio prove host who along with her performer partner, Kevin Sorbo, constructed the decision several years ago to dwelling Academy "their children's". Their excursion inspired Sorbo's new book:" They're Your Kids, An Inspirational Journey from Self-Doubter to Home School Advocate ." What is it about the age 6 that a child has to go to school...the mother is supplanted...you've taught your child how to tie their shoes, their ABCs, a little about table manners...and a little bit about sharing...but now it's time for the professionals, they have to take over now ." The first half of her journal tells the sad state of affairs for America's public education system ... Every time, over million students drop out of high school- that's a student every 26 seconds, 7,000 a day. The homeschool benefits could keep kids in school.
And the fact that Common Core is the ninth overhaul of our nation's education system in less than 30 times. And yet, Sorbo admits it wasn't an easy decision for her ..." I went to Duke University, I studied biomedical engineering, I experienced inadequate to teachers teaching their own children. How pathetic is that ?" We've been trained to send our kids to the academy and that is the one success those schools have achieved- convincing everybody that their kids have to attend the public schools or something like it ." But increasing numbers of mothers aren't convinced. So why not use the Homeschool benefits to help all children?
With 91 percent saying they chose to homeschool because of" a concern about the school environ" which included expresses concern about security, medications or negative peer pressure. 77 percent of mothers announced " a desire to provide moral direction" inspired their decision and 74 percent rolled" dissatisfaction with academic education at other academies" as a manager reason they chose to homeschool. Homeschool is not simply an education option...it's the best alternative. The public Academy is now relegated to the last trench alternative. And we see this now in the inner cities...those children have been abandoned. You've got some good teachers, I don't' get down on the educator ... many are trying to do a good position. But the system works against them- the overburdened classrooms and all of the other troubles we've heard about in the schools ." And analyses evidence, America's children are falling behind those in other countries.
According to recent findings of the Program for International Student Assessment, students in 29 countries statistically outperformed U.S. students in math, 19 did so in reading, and 22 did so in science. Sorbo shapes the suit that America's public education system is out of date." I believe children are a lot brighter than we are allowing them to be...We developed an industrialized version of education and it doesn't work because one sizing doesn't fit all .".
