Homeschool Is Not Public School


The new wave of homeschoolers is very much keeping one foot in the matrix, trying to do it in a way that closely resembles public school as much as possible. They ask about teachers and 'learning pods' - they still want someone else to take the responsibility for home educating their children. Guess what? Homeschooling is nothing like public school and you can do it however you would like. Break out of the paradigm entirely, deschool for a bit, enjoy the company of your children and forget about keeping up with the scope and sequence of your local school. Learning is fun, not drudgery. It's a calling and a fulfilling vocation. And there is freedom in keeping your family together for living and learning.

Some families are just homeschooling because they don't want their kids in masks or subject to other tyrannical measures, and that is laudable enough. If those circumstances change, their children will be back in classrooms in a flash. Those of us who see homeschooling as a calling; we stand firm despite the discouragement, the struggle, the interpersonal issues, the boredom, the drudgery - this is what God has called us to and we will not abandon our posts. 

If you are seeking wisdom on homeschooling, watch that you are not taking advice from those who do not see this as a calling. Their methods are those of the matrix and they will not lead to long lasting satisfaction with the home educating life. 

Home education can be as simple as reading a book. Watching an interesting video. Talking about things that interest you to someone else. Don't make it more complicated or more regulated than it needs to be. Homeschool moms are not cosplaying as public school teachers and we don't need to follow their failed methods.
