Home-schoolers, home -school for a variety of reasons. I home -school because we felt like the Jackson County Public Schools were failing our children, and that we could do a better job educating them. We must have been right our 16 year old starts college this August. He scored a 28 on the ACT and was eligible for early admission.
The advantages of home-schooling
1. Allows students to work at their own pace.
2. Allows students to study in depth areas that really interest them.
3. A flexible schedule
4. One on One instruction.
How can you home-school?
First register your children with the school attendance officer for your school district as home-schooled. Mississippi laws concerning home-schooling http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp?State=MS
Second choose your curriculum. I use the HomeSchool SuperCenter http://homeschoolsupercenter.com/shop.php
Third find a support group. One I recommend is the PEAK Group for the Gulf Coast http://groups.yahoo.com/group/peakgroupgc/
