Thousands of Families Plan to Use to Homeschool

The Old Schoolhouse® provides continued support to homeschoolers with its resources

GRAY, Tenn. - July4, 2023 - PRLog -- Education begins at home, and parents are the first teachers. Parents are the ones caring for and nurturing their children from birth. How long this lasts depends on the parent. Outside responsibilities often change the dynamic, leaving families turning to others for help for most of the day—some as early as six weeks, others when their child begins preschool. This is traditionally accepted in American culture, but is it the best approach?

This methodology simply is not cutting it anymore. Many parents who grew up going to daycare and then public school are not choosing the same route for their children—and for valid reasons.

Research reveals that 87% of peer-reviewed studies on social, emotional, and psychological development show homeschool students perform statistically significantly better than those in conventional schools (

This is in part because parents can pinpoint what their child needs and hone in on strengthening weaknesses while elevating strengths. More parents are recognizing this and considering not putting their children on the bus this fall. They want to pull them from the public school system but must figure out how to make it work.

“Parents feel stuck,” said Gena Suarez, The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine publisher. “They are eager to pull their kids out of public school but hesitant because of finances, jobs, or other hindrances. It may not seem like a viable choice, but with The Old Schoolhouse®’s PK–12th grade curriculum,, parents who need a flexible school schedule are presented with an affordable yet high-quality option. It offers easy-to-use tools, over 400 courses with lesson plans, ongoing parent support, and free enrollment at local church Schoolhouses (where available) to complete classes in community with other families.”
