We have been getting a lot of emails asking about homeschooling and usually the following questions, here are our answers, I thought I answer this with some short replies …..
1. How do I inform the Ministry of Education? What to do?
Answer: Don’t do anything until you understand homeschooling and what it entails. Compulsory education currently applies to primary school. You can apply for exemption but there are other methods and approaches. We can discuss that once we are ready to take the next step. Suffice to know, exemption is available.
2. What about SAT or GCE Track and is it recognised and which university?
Answer: Appreciate that university is ONE of the MANY options available. Understand you children, explore options with them. Let their interest and inclination drive their path. I have talked about several options on this blog.
Essentially, we feel that if you really want to consider homeschooling, you really need to do 2 key things:
1. Think outside the concept of schools. You will be taking a different paths. The whole learning process is evolving. Technology and other innovations are driving a lot of these changes.
2. It’s about bringing out our kids true potential – this is what will make them happy in the future. Build strong family ties and appreciate what are your own core values.
Read the rest of this blogsite and links (local and foreign) and exchange your thoughts with us and determine if this path is suitable for you.
You will need to rethink learning and education.
