There are many misconceptions about homeschool. A child’s education still counts when they are homeschooled. There are many different types of homeschooling options. There are actual schools for homeschoolers and there are also online classes for homeschoolers. Most homeschoolers do have real teachers. Deciding on the type of homeschool and the type of curriculum is up to the parent. The parent usually decides upon a homeschool and curriculum that fits the needs of their child.
Parents decide to homeschool for many different reasons. Most people’s opinions on homeschooling are ignorant because they know nothing about homeschooling. There are a lot of children that were homeschooled and are very successful today because they had the freedom to explore their own possibilities. I’m not sure why everyone is acting like homeschooling is so bad. Child actors and entertainers have been homeschooled for years. So why is LaVar Ball making such a bad decision to homeschool his son? In my opinion, he may just be making the best decision ever.
He has already made a name for his entire family. LaMelo is already known by everyone. They already know how well he can play basketball. His decision to homeschool LaMelo and to make him ‘the best basketball player ever’ is great. He can only get better and still have a great education. Homeschooling will give him the flexible schedule to train, attend training camps, and still attend school with the option to gain additional high school credits.
If you don’t like the way a job is being done you always have the option of doing it yourself especially when it comes to your children. As a homeschooling parent, I don’t blame LaVar Ball for deciding to homeschool his son and train him at home. He did what he was supposed to do. I’m sure he probably feels like he made the best decision for LaMelo because he knows that he can train him and he knows what the outcome will be.
I have had to pull my daughter out of school to homeschool because I knew that I could work with her better at home. My daughter is also homeschooled and she has more options and better opportunities than children attending regular school. As the admin of the Black Homeschooling Families Support Group on Facebook I am sure there are several parents that will agree with me that homeschooling your children is one of the best decisions a parent can make.
