Public schools do not have a choice as to who may go there.
As a result you are accepted regardless of race, religion, immigrant status, disability, or behavior.
Instruction aimed at students of average intelligence.
Not much flexibility for students to learn at their own pace.
If you think homeschooling might be right for you, THSC is here to support that choice with resources such as our free Home Educator Quarterly magazine, our Home Educator Express monthly email, and our free online homeschool group locator.For example, you might believe that public schools have more extracurricular offerings such as band, theater and sports.However, most homeschoolers can access these activities through homeschool groups or the community.School shootings are statistically unlikely, but it still worries you.In addition to those listed above, other relevant factors usually just depend on the school in question.You are forced on a daily basis to deal with people who are different than you which makes for a more evolved, understanding, and compassionate community overall.This IS NOT, AND CANNOT, be taught in private schools because they do not let "just anybody" in.Public school students deal with all sorts of lack.They have to fight for attention (overcrowded classrooms), deal with a lack of supplies (imagine going to a school where you do not have to even bring a pencil or a piece of paper to school because it is all provided for you!Twice annually, we also offer Called to Teach Homeschool Conventions in Arlington and The Woodlands.These overwhelmingly incredible experiences for homeschooling families include informative and encouraging speakers; more than 200 vendors of homeschooling products and services; and fellowship time designed for children, teens, moms and dads.
