dc.description.abstractThis case study explored the advantages and disadvantages of the home schooling experience of one family. Data collection consisted of direct observations, review of taped lessons, samples of student work, curriculum review, pre- and post- interviews with parents and student, analysis of reflective journal kept by parents, interviews with extended family members and friends of the family, and results of standardized testing. Reasons for home-schooling were concerns over the quality of the public school education the student previously attended and religious concerns. Findings indicated that the advantages were a better quality education, teaching of religious values, more family time, and a flexible schedule. Disadvantages consisted of a lack of available resources, (financial and educational) and the teaching ability of parents at higher levels of academic subjects.
