Your Educational Philosophy

Your educational philosophy will serve you in many ways and is a valuable reference as you navigate your way through home schooling. Here are some open-ended questions to think about together with your spouse. Referring back to your answers will help you set goals and decide whether particular methods, curricula or materials are a good fit or not. Use these as a starting point to get you thinking about what education can and should be for your children. 

What is education?

What is its purpose?

What is its value?

How do you obtain it?

How do you know when it has been obtained?

What is the role of the student?

What is the role of the teacher?

What is worth knowing?
