No, it's not a competition! I've been trying to address some of the questions new homeschoolers often have, and I thought it would be enlightening to look at the differences between learning at home and learning in a traditional classroom.
Although homeschooling has become much more common and accepted, a lot of people still don't understand how it is done. They assume it's just "school at home." But in practice, homeschoolers often shape a learning environment that looks nothing like what we think of as "school."
My mini-series looks at three of the biggest differences of homeschooling vs public schooling. Part I explores Where Students Learn. Do a child's surroundings can have an affect on their education? I think they do -- see if you agree with me.
