  1. Hello Madam.

    I am Samhita and I write from Bangalore. I have known about the concept of homeschooling for a long time, but have recently become keenly interested in the topic. I plan to write a paper on homeschooling, its advantages, the elimination of its perceived disadvantages and about it being the need of the hour for certain sections of the society today.

    Can you please guide me as to what the homeschooling community feel about this? What structure would you like? How much flexibility would you like? Would you like ready made teaching materials delivered to your doorstep? Would you like ease of functionality with regarding to ease of examinations and contacting other schools as a private candidate?

    Do consider my queries and answer them as you deem fit.

    With Warm Regards

Don't know what are the advantages, disadvantages or even will I be able to do so...i would be grateful if you can share your journey of homeschooling...apart from this I will go through the links and websites you have shared here. Thank you.
