Homeschooling has earned a reputation over the past several decades of being a very educationally sound and effective alternative for parents to educate their children. It also has helped many parents win the heart of their child or teach their values. Homeschooling often helps the struggling student as well as the excelling student. The program can be tailor-made for remediation or enrichment. Though a teacher in a traditional classroom for over thirty years, I support and empathize with those who have undertaken the schooling of their children at home. Ultimately, the responsibility of training children was entrusted by God to parents, not to the government or even to the church.

Since 1988 Pennsylvania has had one of the best laws of any state regarding homeschooling. Though it has some accountability requirements, they are minimal and beneficial. The law also protects homeschooling families, ensuring consistency and fair treatment and due process if questions are raised. The Act 196 of 2014 has strengthened the right of parents to homeschool, opened new opportunities, and removed some of the most onerous paperwork requirements.
I enjoy doing evaluations every summer. Not only do I learn about resources and techniques that are working for others, I have been able to be a sounding board and help to families as well. There are other ways I believe I can be of help to you as well.
Please feel free to contact me if I can be of help to you!
