Homeschool Q & A Zoom Meeting
As part of our library's initiative to better serve a growing number of homeschoolers, we held a Homeschool Q & A Zoom Meeting. It was an opportunity for those who are new to or considering homeschooling to speak to some local homeschoolers and ask them any questions they might have.
I reached out to a local Homeschool Facebook Group and found 3 homeschool parents who were willing to serve as a panel to answer questions, one of which was an an administrator of a local co-op group.
Some questions that were addressed were:
Can you talk a little about homeschool law in Kentucky?
Is homeschooling expensive? What are some costs involved?
How do you keep kids focused on their school-work at home?
How do you set pacing for your child's schoolwork?
Do homeschoolers have to take standardized tests?
How do you choose your curriculum?
How do you give your homeschooled kids opportunities to socialize with others?
If someone decides to start homeschooling after having their child attend public school for a while, how can you help that child make the transition from public school to homeschool?
Can you talk more about local co-ops?
What resources are available for homeschooling a child with special needs?
The meeting lasted about an hour and was very informative.
