    wow that is great, my son is 34 but when he was young I wanted to home school him but felt what did I know, he was best to learn with qualified teachers.

    I have been teaching since 1982, yet I still feel so blessed to have had my sons taught by public ed teachers besides their old mom...and I am so proud of the young men they are...thanks teachers!

    I have always admired people who home school - I never felt I would have the patience or regiment to do it myself. Very informative article, am going to read more of your work as time permits.

    Carol, I'm not sure whether Quebec had any legal stance on homeschooling at that time, but I know schools in the Montreal area often had a policy of informing parents homeschooling was illegal until very recently.

    Homeschooling is not a choice for everyone, but anyone can do it if they want to. It does mean adapting to changes, and it may well create the necessity to look outside the family for some subjects. (Our girls do arts & physical education outside the home, for example.)

    It doesn't necessarily imply extra discipline on the part of parents, either. I know several unschooling families whose children are bright, articulate, and obviously not suffering for a lack of textbooks, worksheets or regimented routines. There are myriad ways to homeschool, and we each find our own path to success.

    Interesting article Kyla. I know many mothers that homeschool their children. Resources such as those you provide are very helpful.
