Out of the Classroom and into the Home
More and more people are choosing to go online for their education.
One of the main reasons alternative education is chosen is so religion can be taught as well as academics.
My step sister home schooled my two nieces because of religious reasons and because they did missionary work and were out of the country for over a year at a time. They are now in their late 20's now and are both very successful.
What are the main reasons mothers choose to home school; religious/moral instruction and the environment of the school.
Now that there are so many on-line options, I think alternative education is just on the brink of exploding.
There are many smaller reasons parents choose alternative education such as bullying, teen pregnancy, learning disabilities and many more. It is becoming a lot easier to find a niche school for just about anything.
