Is working while homeschooling possible? Yes!
- Jan. 18, 2022
-- Is it truly feasible for parents to hold down a job while homeschooling their children successfully?
The answer is "yes," which is good news in today's world where home education is more prevalent than ever. Parents who may not have initially considered homeschooling are finding that the choice is becoming common. In fact, according to the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI.org), "Home education is an age-old traditional educational practice that a decade ago appeared to be cutting-edge and 'alternative' but is now bordering on 'mainstream' in the United States. It may be the fastest growing form of education in the United States. Home-based education has also been growing around the world in many other nations."
Gena Suarez, magazine publisher, knows that homeschooling while working is possible. The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine,
founded by Suarez, has roots as an eBay store, which specialized in selling used curriculum. Suarez found herself answering questions about curriculum for other homeschoolers. She turned those questions and answers into a simple newsletter, which grew over the past two decades into what is today trusted as the trade magazine for the homeschool industry. "Generating an income while homeschooling is possible simply because homeschooling is extremely flexible. The work world is suddenly extremely flexible as well. Education at home, and now work at home, can be accomplished well in countless ways. Every homeschool looks different to meet the needs of the children and family," said Suarez.
