Home Schooling Your Children On The Internet

Home Schooling Your Children On The Internet

Do you​ have children in​ school - or​ are you​ planning for​ it​ soon?

Have you​ asked yourself if​ public schools are really doing all they can to​ improve your child and​ educate him or​ her for​ the​ real world?

Do you​ try to​ stifle desires to​ send them to​ private schools because of​ the​ cost or​ the​ perceived 'elitist' mentality?

Have you​ ever had a​ day arrive when your child comes home worn out, agitated and​ frustrated and​ thought to​ yourself "I'd love to​ keep my child home and​ teach him myself - if​ only I had the​ time."

Now, maybe you​ can. Here are some of​ the​ options.


Yes, private schools are sought by the​ wealthiest and​ most privileged of​ society. Although some would likely debate the​ benefits of​ private schooling over public schooling most parents probably have considered the​ option and​ would jump at​ the​ opportunity to​ give private schooling to​ their children if​ it​ appeared.

Unfortunately, for​ most families, private schooling is​ simply not a​ reality. at​ a​ cost of​ $7000 and​ upwards, the​ ability to​ afford such education is​ beyond their means. Religious affiliated schools are less expensive, but still not an​ option for​ many families with a​ of​ cost several thousands per year.


Traditional home schooling where the​ parent is​ the​ supervisor of​ the​ child's work is​ another option. With fantastic resources and​ helpful teachers to​ assist, it​ has been a​ form of​ education that can be the​ answer to​ parents who want the​ one-on-one education that public schools cannot provide.

Home schooling has been the​ basis of​ society for​ thousands of​ years - long before schools came about. However, in​ today's society it​ can be difficult for​ parent's to​ maintain the​ supervision of​ assignments that is​ needed for​ home schooling. This may become even more of​ an​ issue as​ a​ child gets into the​ higher grades and​ parents are unfamiliar with the​ curriculum or​ are working and​ do not have as​ much time to​ assist them.


A new addition to​ education, the​ internet is​ now providing the​ ability for​ parents to​ give their child an​ enhanced curriculum, control over education, and​ online support. This will all cost much less than private school at​ an​ average cost of​ $900 per year.

Older children can benefit from online teachers who are able to​ supervise the​ work - a​ huge benefit for​ working or​ single parents. Many accredited Internet schools offer similar courses to​ those available in​ private schools.

Joel Turtel, who is​ the​ author of​ "Public Schools, Public Menace: How Public Schools Lie to​ Parents and​ Betray Our Children," says that busy working parents can give their kids a​ quality, low-cost education at​ home using the​ Internet. “K-12th grade Internet schools can take most of​ the​ homeschooling burden off parent's backs.”

Perhaps this is​ the​ answer you've been looking for.
