State wide homeschooling regulations for SchoolPODs in the United States

Mar 29, 2021

If you are reading this, then chances are you are concerned about current K-12 education models and are likely exploring alternative learning strategies for your children.  

During my lifetime I have been a student, educator, entrepreneur, city counsellor, and life-long learner. Twenty years ago, as an independent/private school educator, my children attended St. George’s School of Montreal, a progressive liberal arts K-11 private day school.  Now adults, they are evaluating educational options for their own children.  More informed than previous generations, millennials are open to options that serve their increasing demand for individualized education coupled with the adoption of educational philosophies that focus more on ‘learning strategy’ and less on content.  After all, in today’s world if we need to know details about a particular historical event, the answer is in the palm of our hand’s.  (If you have never heard Sir Ken Robinsion speak on this subject, click on the video to learn more from this renown educator)  

The emergence and growth of SchoolPODs, learning pods, micro schools and homeschooling is the response to growing demands for individualized learning, curriculum choice, diversified / progressive learning strategies, flexible school calendars, and small class size.  Clearly there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to education.  Options and choices are a good thing.
