Blog Cruise — Why Homeschool?

Why do you homeschool?

I love asking this question to homeschool moms. For some reason, I just find it an interesting and enlightening conversation to have.

Ask a hundred homeschool moms why they homeschool and you’ll get 100 different answers. From academic excellence to special learning needs, differing worldviews to more time as a family, there are a whole host of reasons families choose to homeschool. And sometimes those reasons change from year to year.

Come along this week, as members of the Crew share with you why they choose to homeschool. You’re guaranteed to read some insightful articles in this week’s Blog Cruise.
