“Nearly one in four are completely dissatisfied with U.S. Education.” That’s the bad news according to Gallup (Sept. 1, 2022). That’s good news, however, for American children whose parents strive for a better educational option and find it by choosing to homeschool. Reasons cited for school dissatisfaction include “political agenda concerns,” “lack of teaching basics/reading/writing/arithmetic,” “not learning life skills,” “history not being taught/real history,” and many more.
“Parents can take their dissatisfaction with U.S. schools and trade it for satisfaction by homeschooling their children,” explained Gena Suarez, a leader in home education for over two decades. Suarez has published over one hundred editions of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine, which reaches homeschooling families worldwide through print and online options. “Home is safe and the perfect place to teach critical thinking, civics, empathy, and anything else that the schools are neglecting. There’s simply nothing better than a one-on-one education, which homeschooling naturally provides.”
The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine shared a free special edition for ongoing support called “Homeschooling: You Are Not Alone.” This digital supplement includes ideas, information, and answers for any stage of home education—from the early years through high school and all along the way. Articles written by home educators and leaders cover organization, expectations, balancing work and homeschool, special needs, and even unschooling. Anyone can access the “Homeschooling: You Are Not Alone” supplement in a digital-only format at no cost through The Homeschool Store.
“We have seen an increase in readership at The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine among parents who were once homeschooled themselves. These second-generation homeschoolers remain enthusiastic about their own education and are now securing that positive experience for their children,” said Suarez. “That’s educational satisfaction at its best. The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine is happy to continue supporting and welcoming home educators at any and every stage.
