So many parents in North Carolina are now choosing to homeschool that the state site for opening a homeschool was unable to process any more requests earlier this month. [Fortunately, things seem to be working again]. According to Governor Cooper’s recent announcement, public school will be very different this year, meeting only a couple of days a week and with plenty of safety precautions. Parents are concerned about safety and continuing to try to manage their student’s public school assignments at home. If they are going to be at home most of the time anyway, why not take ownership of your children’s education?
If you are considering homeschooling, be sure to download our free resource, Top 10 Questions Parents Ask Before Choosing to Homeschool. This will provide some answers and resources to your biggest questions about home education.
