Hi I’m Tena Brown, of @ The “T” Table, my son Joshua and I moved to California from Atlanta when he was 11-years old then living bi-coastal. By the time he was 13 we started producing and directing a Television Series together called “But What About School” on Public Access about the Pros, Cons and Myths of Home School vs. Public, Private and Charter Schools.
Home School is not for everybody, it is a choice you and your entire family have to make.
Home School is always about Time Management and Discipline.
Home School is not about Micro Management
Home School is 4-Hours a day and 180-Days.
You can do Home School on a plain, in the car, or in the house at the desk in your room. You can also do Home School at a designated building with other Home Schoolers.
This section is about the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do and understand in terms of any kind of school. Joshua was registered in Gwinnett County School Board of Education in a Home School Program from 4th grade to 10th grade. We were living in Georgia and California. When I in-rolled him back into public school in 11th grade it was a high school panic for the school system. No one knew how to place him, it was not just in the Gwinnett County Georgia School district, it was everywhere.
This pushed me not to ever want another Home School student and their families to go through what we went through.
A normal high school student takes 17-Classes. Because Joshua went back to school in the 11th grade instead of 9th-grade he had to take 27-Classes and Test; Face-to-Face, Online, Summer School, 5-different Tutors for testing, and a Technical School for Broadcasting. The school board and the school said no one could possible make it through that type of schedule and graduate on time. Well he did with Honors.
The School Board said the reason almost all Home Schoolers never go into Public School after 9th grade is because they cannot take the scheduling and Home Schoolers that do go into Public School after 9th grade almost always go back into Home School to graduate.
THE LOBBYING POINT
I would like to see every Home School person have to take a mandatory standardize test every two years that is certified by the School Board in which they are registered in and that series of test will always be equivalent to Public School standardize test. This will insure Home School Students that want to come into the Public, Private, or Charter School System at any grade and want be put through so intense challenges week after week.
There should be 3 to 5 certified choices of test each test period Home School Student Teachers can choice from.
Home School is wonderful and it teaches students how to live outside the box and most Home Schoolers have various extracurricular activities and will do just fine in a highly intense work environment, but it doesn’t teach students about real peer pressure of hundreds of students.
