Considerations for trade careers in this TOS issue
- Dec. 6, 2022
-- To attend college, most students borrow money, later repaying not only the principal but also interest. In fact, "The average federal student loan debt is $37,667" (educationdata.org/
of-college). Rory Groves offers a different plan and suggests students consider a career in the trades, as outlined in the latest issue of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
: "Instead of starting out life tens of thousands of dollars in debt, your student can get paid to learn through an apprenticeship and have a job waiting for them upon completion. Imagine that."
Each quarter homeschooling parents turn to The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
for valuable information like that from Groves. In print for over two decades, the publication gathers the best of seasoned homeschool voices to encourage homeschooling parents during every stage of education. "Homeschooling doesn't have to be hard, and The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
is here to help. We have tips for struggling readers and college and career ideas. We have suggestions for teaching math and for teaching a classical education. Relating to home life, we offer articles on celebrating holidays, blogging, and self-sufficiency,"
said Senior Editor Deborah Wuehler, referring to the Winter 2022–23 issue. Wuehler regularly shares with readers her own homeschooling experiences and valuable advice as a mother of eight.
Experts like Dr. Brian Ray, a leading international homeschool researcher, and Dianne Craft, a special needs consultant, are recognized in the homeschool community and make frequent contributions to The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
. Homeschool bloggers like Yvie Field and Heather Vogler shared their thoughts for the Winter issue to inspire readers, as did many other homeschool parents and homeschool graduates.
"Every issue of The Old Schoolhouse® Magazine
includes something for homeschooling parents at every stage," said Gena Suarez, publisher. "Our Winter issue
is available now and truly is a treasure of homeschool inspiration that we are happy to place in the hands of parents worldwide."
