Parents who choose to homeschool their children do it for a variety of reasons, to include safety,

“Public school forces children to become adults too quickly. Homeschooling gives parents and children an option to focus the learning and mastery,” said Shavaun Jackson, a parent. “Another very important reason for homeschool is child safety and quality of life.”

“For me, I think the over testing culture and children not being free to learn in the way that they’re made with curriculum tailor-made for them,” said parent Tatana Whetstone, of Lake Ridge.
