Brooke is a school teacher who always wanted to homeschool, but was scared into sending her son to traditional school after an autism diagnosis. After one year, Brooke decided homeschooling was the way to go for her and her family. Although her son did well in class, he was completely exhausted when he got home and Brooke wasn't getting to spend the quality time with her son as she desired.
Brooke discusses the curriculum of the Core Knowledge Foundation with us in detail, explaining how it spirals out into a comprehensive way for children to actually take in the information you are giving them. They even have a “what your ___ grader needs to know” – if you question what your child needs to know by each age!
We discuss government voucher programs, why parents should be the ones to have the tough conversations with their kids, and how even in the best schools- they are STILL A BUSINESS, which gets funding based on test scores.
