Students in U.S. high schools can get free digital access to The New York Times until Sept. 1, 2021.
A recent Times article profiled nine families who have been happily home-schooling their children since before the pandemic began.
Now that you’ve likely had a taste of learning from home, do you wish your family had always home-schooled you? What do you think the advantages of learning outside the traditional system would be? The disadvantages? How do you imagine you might be different today if you had been home-schooled since early childhood? (And for those readers who were, what can you tell us about it? Are you glad to have been educated this way?)
Tell us in the comments, then read the related article to learn about families that find “freedom and fulfillment” in the practice.
