It is a privilege to be able to homeschool your kids.
Yes, it is also a lot of hard work and sacrifice.But, in the end, if you or another trusted adult is able to devote a significant amount of time on your child’s education, that is a privilege.
A privilege which was thrust into a big bright spot light because of a pandemic that forced our schools to close.
For the first time homeschooling wasn’t a choice, it was a mandate. And as the weeks and months went on, we heard story after story of parents struggling to manage the new normal of working, raising a family and educating their children.
Many parents just asked the bare minimum of work from their kids, others just threw in the towel, believing (hoping) they would get through this until the school year ended.
Well, now summer is here in the United States, and families have to face the reality that “school” will be much different if and when they reopen.
