As a homeschooler – I can attest to the reason my parents did it was religious. Also, the high school was far away, and my parents didn’t like the school very much. Fortunately, my dad worked at home, and my mom managed our schoolwork.
Had the internet been around, I am sure it would have made it even better.
I am not homeschooling my kids because one of the things I feel I missed out was the being with other kids, dealing with school issues and having the community.
Not sure there are massive investment opportunities in the space but it will be interesting to see how much tech changes education as we know.
However, at times, I think people should lean on tech less for some issues – like:
This is where the world is too virtual and thinks tech solves all problems – want to learn a language? Go to a real class, with a teacher and other students to practice on. You will progress much faster and feel better as a human 🙂 https://t.co/vnRQ8fYtTZ
