Recently I was asked "If you were going to homeschool your
own children today, what curriculum and method would you
I am, in fact, helping to homeschool four of my
grandchildren, and my method is very simple: a) I share life
experiences with them, b) I give them books to read which I
think are of particular value and importance, c) I ask them to
write reports on each of those books, d) I emphasize vocabulary
and grammar, et cetera. So far, each of them is doing very well
on their College Board tests and college admissions.
My youngest son, Sam, was homeschooled, even while he resided
in his motherís womb, and he was accepted at every college to
which he applied, including Hampden-Sydney, William and Mary,
Virginia Military Institute, Christendom College, and The
Citadel. In most cases, he was offered scholarships.
We had no fixed curriculum, but we made sure he was well
versed in the Constitution, the Bible, current events, history,
You also ask "If you were going to invest in career education
today, where would you place a bet on demand for the future?
What skills would you develop in order to be a viable worker in
the economy of the future?".
My answer is very simple. There will always be a demand for
integrity, energy, as well as verbal and written communication
Good men are hard to find, and they usually will have no
problem whatsoever in finding suitable opportunities.
Thanks for asking.
