Truly each child is born with all of the assets, dispositions, learning styles, “equipment” that he or she will need to practice his or her gifts in the world. Sometimes traditional education does not or cannot by its nature foster the development of these gifts.
Flexibility in the learning process is perhaps the biggest advantage of learning outside of the traditional classroom. A marriage of curriculum executed in a manner that honors both the student’s ways of learning, customized for his or her needs, and state standards, is, in Christina’s opinion, a comfortable place to be. If state standards are not an immediate goal for the family this allows for even more freedom in the learning process.
