Homeschooling continues to gain popularity as an education alternative where personalized learning can flourish. This brief continuing education course was developed using information from the Center on Innovations in Learning to provide information on the benefits of homeschooling and how its design allows for adapting instruction to each individual student’s needs. Specific homeschooling characteristics such as parental involvement, ability to focus on the whole child, individualized instruction, technology immersion, and specialized student support are discussed as well as action steps for states, districts, and schools as they consider what can be learned from homeschooling practices.
1. Discuss the growth of homeschooling in the United States and factors that make homeschooling the ultimate personal environment.
2. Describe how homeschooling increases parental involvement in education and allows for adapting instruction based on student need rather than standardization and mandates.
3. Identify how the individualized instruction, pacing, and increased use of technology with homeschooling enables children to gain greater exposure to the world and to the modern information age.
4. Evaluate how homeschooling applied to the broader educational landscape may provide students in a variety of unique situations the best opportunity to thrive and allow for discipline specialization.
5. Summarize action steps for states, districts, and schools as they consider what can be learned from homeschooling practices.
