David sent me an email several weeks ago with a link to this video. I didn’t watch it immediately because the clip is 20 minutes long, and let’s face it . . . 20 minutes is about 15 minutes longer than my attention span.
However, when I watched it a few days ago, I found myself immediately taking notes on the closest thing that resembled paper–a photo envelope. This man brings up several interesting points and addresses many issues with the public school system.
Is now a good time to mention that I’m considering home schooling my kids?
Did I just open a can of worms? 🙂
Yes, I’m considering all of our options: public school (100% positive this is not the option for us), charter school (she’s on a lottery list for a school), private school (we’ve narrowed it down to one school and it is pricey, YIKES!), K-12 which is an online charter school, and . . . home school.
There are so many options once you entertain them all, and I’ve been analyzing all the pros and cons for years.
Yes, YEARS. (Before we even knew if we would ever have children, David and I talked about home schooling.)
I have a big decision to make in a few months and I want to behave like an ostrich and stick my head in the sand, wishing all this decision making would just go away! Can’t my kids just stay little FOREVER?!
I’ll post the pros and cons of each option (in my opinion of course) soon. Maybe if I write it all out the answer will be clear to me.
