Myths #2 and #3

Myth #2 goes something like this: “Well, you can homeschool because you have an education degree.” True, but you'd be surprised as to how well planned some of the curriculum packages are out there – they literally spell out what you have to read, when and how.

And myth #3 involves the thinking that homeschooled children will never be able to attend a university (or other tertiary institution)?” You'd be surprised to learn that there is a growing propensity of universities seeking out homeschooled applicants as they have already fostered a love of learning and already know how to do their own research and generally know early on which career path they would like to follow. In fact, a number of Masters students at UCT are currently doing their theses on the great explosion in the homeschooling movement. And there are so many ways to home educate a child through high school you would be surprised.
