Homeschooling’s Most Harmful Myth—Debunked

Any person who has ever purchased clothing knows this: One size does not fit all. What fits well on me will look ludicrous on my 6'1" neighbor, won’t fit my curvaceous friends, and certainly won’t do much for Daniel, my partner. There is no standard human, and to pretend otherwise makes life pretty uncomfortable for everyone involved.

I think about the one-size-fits-all model a lot when I remember what brought our family to homeschool our then eight-year-old daughter, four years ago.

When we started this experiment, I thought I knew what a typical homeschooling family looked like. Homeschoolers were either fundamentalist Christians who wanted to isolate their children from the corrupting influence of modern society or off-the-grid hippies with a reflexive fear of authority and an inclination to make their own yogurt and shoes. ...

Amen to that!

Especially learning how to discern what is and what is not important to the instructor, since it is most often the former that will appear on the exams.

I got mostly A's in HS because I was able to assimilate ALL the material presented by the teacher. But when I got to college I strained just to get C's and D's, eventually dropping out because the amount of material was far too large to assimilate causing me to be unprepared for some of the exam questions needed to earn a high grade.

Had I been taught "how to learn" early enough to make a difference I'm sure I would've ended up becoming a much more productive member of society.

"I wanted our daughter to learn how to learn."

This is a very good point.

I remember back in the 1970's reading a book by a guy called Edward De Bono who made this very point about education systems in western countries. That they don't teach children how to learn and skills in accumulating facts.

Teachers emit lots of facts and expect all students to memorise them to regurgitate them at exam time. But alas not all kids have good memories.
