    Default What is YOUR educational background?

    A recent poll showed that homeschooled children of parents with college degrees do a tiny bit better in standardized tests . . . but still score an average of thirty points higher than students in traditional educational settings. There was no significant difference when the teaching parent held a degree in education.

    I have a bachelor's and a master's degree in education. I'm proud of my education and I worked very hard to earn those degrees. My background as a former teacher both helps and hurts me as a homeschooling mom! LOL!

    But you don't need a degree of any kind to teach your child. Anyone who has a true heart and desire to do so can be extremely successful!

    B.A. in English, 6 hours short of a dual major, I just finally had to stop going to school because I couldn't afford it any more! I would still be in school if finances allowed, I seriously love going to college.

    I have a BS in Biology and after a 15 year break (OMG!) I'm back trying to finish my MS in Nutrition. All of that is completely unnecessary to homeschool my kids, but maybe I'm just subconsciously trying to set a good example for them...lots of studying! LOL

    "If the schools were perfect, I would still homeschool my children - because it isn't about school. It's about families taking back their children and educating them as they see best. School is only a substitute for the real thing."
