Home Spun comic strip #257
I have this theory that some of the most common misconceptions about homeschooling are caused by the word itself. I know I'm not alone in this theory. I don't know of many homeschoolers who limit their "formal" education to the home. They may take their books on the road, join learning co-ops, take courses, spend more time in libraries, museums...the possibilities are endless. Many of us search for a more accurate term to describe our form of education. I'm sure some of my readers are thinking of new words for their education style as they read this. I don't imagine the word homeschooling will be replaced anytime soon, but it's fun to try to describe it more accurately. You know, for the sake of the uninformed.
