The Old Schoolhouse® welcomes millennials planning to homeschool

GRAY, Tenn. - June 22, 2021 - PRLog -- While vaccinated patrons are permitted to shop in stores without masks, many school children across the country will be required to wear masks this fall. Although some areas are loosening restrictions, many districts are remaining strict in their reopening policies. Children will no longer be allowed to attend the schools they have been part of their entire childhood if their parents do not force compliance.

A national poll recently asked, "Are you more or less likely to enroll your son or daughter in a homeschool, neighborhood homeschool co-op, or virtual school once the lockdowns are over?" Some 40.8% of parents said that they were more likely to pursue homeschooling or virtual school even when the pandemic was over, and 44.9% of these families were in the 18–34 age range.

As schools look for parent classroom helpers, PTA members, and potential school board officials, they actually are leading their target demographic away from the educational model they are trying to build. Rather than addressing concerns of millennial parents represented in their schools, they are presenting a one-size-fits-all method, leading many parents to pull their children from public school.

As parents in the 18–34 age range begin pursuing online homeschooling options, SchoolhouseTeachers.com prepares for a large influx of new members. Over 400 courses are presented to parents, divided by grade or subject. Parents are able to purchase a family subscription, providing immediate access for every family member. Virtual School Boxes give busy parents an open-and-go option, while a course list (https://schoolhouseteachers.com/member-resources/all-cour...) allows parents to create custom curriculum.

"Our virtual education platform is a springboard for parents seeking to home educate their children for the 2021–22 school year. It provides a complete curriculum with electives, parent support, and additional resources to homeschool any child," explained Gena Suarez, publisher of The Old Schoolhouse®, parent company of SchoolhouseTeachers.com.

To help parents prepare this summer, SchoolhouseTeachers.com is offering a deeply discounted rate on its quarterly membership option (https://schoolhouseteachers.com/membership-benefits/join-...). Other full-price options are available for families looking for monthly or annual plans.
