Get Started With Home Schooling

Strict laws are enforced in many states, making testing a requirement even though you’re homeschooling your own kids. Formal testing must be done even if state laws do not require it so that you can assess your child’s progress as you teach them. Most people that do homeschooling work hand-in-hand with the school administration under an umbrella program that helps them fulfill state standards. In some states, it’s actually a legal requirement that parents work with such a program. If you want to remain independent, or work with the school, having a choice like this depends upon the state in which you reside. The reason why most parents like this type of program is that the curriculum is already done for them and they simply have to teach their kids. There is little freedom in such a situation, however, which is something you need to consider if it is an option. If you do have a choice, make a choice that complies with what you think is right.

If your child shows an aptitude for art, chess or a certain sport, you may want to bring him or her to a class or teacher to help develop that ability. Just make sure that you look into resources and tools to help fill in any gaps when you aren’t equipped to teach in a certain area.

You need to get a handle on time management strategies if you are going to be a home school parent. When you and your kids gather for the beginning of your schooling on Monday morning, it may appear that time is not a constraint. However, by Friday afternoon it may become clear that you were not able to complete all the tasks set out for that week. One obstacle will be your other responsibilities. Home teaching is not a part-time effort, but requires a full-time commitment. The best way to treat home schooling is to structure the day as much as possible, similar to a regular school. The first thing on your time schedule should be when “school” starts and when it ends. True, the children aren’t leaving the house, but they need to know when to be at their appointed places and ready for school. In some ways, the hardest part about home schooling is starting out with it. In order to successfully establish a home school, your concept of school as a place you send your children to for someone else to teach will have to change, and you must be prepared for the challenges that will crop up. Once you and your family have become comfortable with whatever form of home schooling you are using, you will realize that it was the correct decision to make and you will be pleased that your children are receiving their education under healthy and happy conditions.

Benefits of Accredited Homeschool

1. Affordability – Normally, parents choose homeschools for their children because of budget constraints. One has option to pay fees either quarterly or monthly. Parents can expect technologically-advanced programs at affordable cost.

2. Support – Online homeschools use advanced technology for a seamless communication between the teachers and the students. A message application is provided where both teachers and students can send direct messages to each other. These messages appear as an icon on every page of the curriculum. The messaging applications are designed so well which allows the sender to send a message linked to a particular assignment rather just a general message. The teachers communicate via email, but homeschools also provide phone-support and webinar technology to allow connection between the student and the teacher. The webinar technology allows sharing the screen and helps the teachers to explain a concept.

3. Personal Guidance – Online homeschools provide a personalized system which gives instructs the student according to his current level of knowledge, and or degree of understanding. The personalized instructors work on the student’s strengths and weaknesses by analyzing his achievement level and ability.

4. Experienced Staff – Personnel hired have wealth of experience as teachers and administrators as well as education specialists for decades. The credentials of these personnel undergo scrutiny by the schools, curriculum education publishers and also the accreditation agency which the respective homeschool is accredited to. The administrators are past teachers and administered private schools. They have worked as education consultants and also field-representatives.

5. Innovative – The online homeschools embrace education technology because students in the present era perceive technology as their friend and rely on it to study, work, play, relax, and communicate. Videos with visually-enhanced content and auditory instructions are provided to students. These video clips reinforce and enrich the concept presented in the lessons. A dynamic mix of text and multimedia presentations helps students to grasp and understand concepts for a longer time. This innovative education technology enhances the learning experience, increases level of interest, and ensures they master the content provided.

Success After College

1. Job Offers – Seek job offers in your areas of strength. Employers want you to contribute to the success of the company. You stand a greater chance of doing that when you start out in a job that takes advantage of your strengths.

2. Company Culture – Investigate the culture in which you will be working. What environment makes you feel comfortable? Every company and every department has an operating style. Do some online research and try to talk with employees, former employees, customers and competitors.

3. Co-workers – Meet and make a judgement about the people you will work with. If you hate your boss and the people you will be working with, it will show. That is not something that will lead you to success.

4. Getting Started – Remember, you are the new employee, “the college kid,” and you don’t yet know how things work around there. You may be book smart, but there is a lot to learn about the people, the products and services and the methods of operation. Your first job is to ‘fit in.’

5. The Work – Accept assignments and responsibility willingly. If you want to progress into the management ranks, you must first show others that you can get the job done as an individual. Later you must get the job done in groups or on teams and when leading a group.

6. Ask Questions – Introduce yourself to everyone you meet. Show others that you are interested in the job, the company and want to learn as much as possible. The faster you gather the information and learn the ropes the faster you will become a member of the team.

7. Your Attitude – Offer everyone a positive attitude, a great smile and a kind word. This acronym will help you remember that making a good impression starts with your attitude: A Tiny Thing Inside That Ultimately Determines Everything.

8. Preparation – Obtain the information, tools, skills and assistance you will need. Doing any job well requires forethought and preparation.

Get College Education Free

Like any other product, the employer wants to pay as little as possible for you and your services. The most capable and productive of you will contribute to, fully produce or sell far more value than you cost your employer annually.

While the aristocracy and some of the wealthy may look upon a college/university education as a globally-oriented, social finishing experience for the young adults in their families, the existing and developing bourgeois (middle class) should recognize college as the next step toward their personal success in the market. Broad, non-focused development of diverse cultural experiences, knowledge and related soft skills is of limited market value and cannot be justified in a ROI consideration. The implication is not that we should forego teaching liberal arts. However, much of higher education has drifted so far from marketable to the corporate world that it is almost criminal to suggest to a student that s/he should major in such subjects, much less pay for the “opportunity”.

The higher education industry claims that as a result of their education and training you will be paid by industry. But, as schools focus more on expanding their liberal arts, fine arts, entertainment (including sports) departments and to a lesser degree upon that which supports and drives markets, the more graduates finish college with lesser marketable knowledge and skills. Most colleges are not accountable for producing job-specific, job-accessing graduates from each student enrolled. Some have even reduced career to the equivalents of in-house, electronic job boards. Further compromising the process, industry, as the primary beneficiary of well-educated pools of candidates, are not paying for your training as it did at the onset of the American Industrial Revolution.

If colleges and universities wish to promote very broad course catalogs and higher education experiences, maybe they should be convincing all of industry that they are providing the training/education their prospective employees need. Maybe they should even be exacting payment from corporate America for education/training services rendered, cooperative placement, and to improve the industry-education system relationship relevancy.
