Could Virtual Public School Be the Right Fit for Your Teen? [008]

by | May 10, 2017

School doesn’t always go as we had imagined for our kids. Social problems, not being challenged or the opposite, too much challenging work–many reasons to be frustrated with the traditional school experience.

Remember Never Been Kissed with Drew Barrymore?  I think that movie in the 90’s was relatable because we all know what it’s like to feel invisible or lower than everyone else.

I wonder what her life would have been like if she would have opted to attend a virtual public school instead?

Virtual Public Schools

Many parents start to get curious about the online K-12 public schools as an option to homeschooling their children in an effort to help their children find out who they are outside of what their peers think.

Often it feels overwhelming to think about taking the role of educator in addition to parenting. For many families, it has been a game changer for their children.

Could online public school be the solution to some of your issues with the traditional public school setting?

Listen in as I interview two very different mothers of teenagers as they share their journey with online public school. Plus get the scoop from a middle school student what school is like online. We’ll cover things you need to consider like:

  • Child’s Temperament
  • Parent’s Temperament
  • Socializing
  • School Curriculum
  • Dual Enrollment
  • Scheduling/Planning Online School

Both of these parents have inspired me to take a second look at virtual public schools.  It may just be the solution for some of our woes around our school experience thus far.  I can tell already that my idea of virtual public school probably won’t go like I have imagined.

What about you?  Have you considered virtual public school before?
