Part of Why I Love Home Education
One of the truly great things about home education is moving at your own pace. Well, really, moving at your child's pace.
Your child may fly through material on subjects in which they take
interest. They need not be forced to endure subjects in which they take
They need not be expected to perform at the same level
as every other child their age in every subject matter. They need not be
to every other child in every subject matter, ranked with percentages
or letter grades, nor labeled based on said percentages or grades.
When we take the unnecessary competition out of education, we allow
ourselves and our children to (re)discover the joy of learning- the
thrill of reading a great book, the sense of accomplishment when we
figure something out, the excitement of new ideas and possibilities, the
freedom that comes with newly found abilities.
