I believe that homeschool parents have the potential to be counted among the most creative minds in the field of education. We are the innovators who can bring education into the 21st century by paying attention to what the research is telling us, accessing what technology is available to us and creatively ushering our homeschools into the times in which we live.
It is time to rethink our educational philosophies and decide what is really working and what might need to change. It is time to practice innovative homeschooling.
This doesn’t mean we should throw everything out or re-invent all of the wheels that have worked in the past.
Of course not.
There is a lot of knowledge to be gained from those who have gone before us and much value to be learned from what has worked in the past.
But we should not discount our experience of life in 2016 by strictly following educational guidelines and theories from the last century without any updates.
