About homeschooling

Question: Can you give us some understanding on home-schooling and traditional education systems. Is there any new information? 


 

Answer from Ascended Master Mother Mary through Kim Michaels:

 

Again, we are working with many different people around the world to bring forth new ideas in the area of education. This messenger is not particularly educated in education and does not therefore have the concept to be a vessel for bringing forth these ideas. Some of you, many people around the world, are open to this.

In terms of home-schooling, it is somewhat an individual evaluation. There are some children who can function well in a home-school environment. There are some parents who can do well as teachers in a home-school environment. But there are many children who will not achieve maximum growth by being home-schooled because they need interaction with greater numbers of other children than their own siblings. There are also some parents who are not suited, and it is not in their Divine plan. They may have other focuses for their attention, and they may have other aspects of their Divine plan that they need to achieve so it is not optimal for them to be teachers at home. I cannot give you a general answer. 

There is nothing, as such, wrong with home-schooling. On the other hand, you need to realize that in a home-schooling environment it is almost as if the parents have to learn everything as they go along. Why not make use of the fact that other people have been teachers and have gained experiences that you can use? There is a need to create some kind of – it is difficult to say – home-schooling system. The whole idea of home-schooling is, of course, that it is not as organized as more official education, but it is necessary to create something that people can use that is based on experience, experience with the child, so that every parent that does home-schooling does not have to reinvent the wheel, so to speak.

It is, of course, in a sense the easy way out to send your child to a public school or to a private school that is already organized. It is more demanding to home-school your child. You should not avoid home-schooling in order to run away from something or have it be convenient. On the other hand, you should not force yourself or your child into a home-schooling environment out of either some idea of how your child should be taught or some dissatisfaction with public schooling. It is important to abstract yourself from these preconceived ideas, so that you are not running towards an ideal that may not be based on experience and seeking to force your child into it. Or you are not running away from what you conceive as the dissatisfying conditions of the organized school system. It is really important to tune in to yourself, to tune in to the child. What is best for the child? What is in your Divine plan?
