Your husband may not realize the toll peer pressure takes on today's kids. The need to look and act like everyone else is enormous. For some, especially very bright kids, this pressure is unbearable. They begin to act up, unconsciously, and exhibit undesirable or inappropriate behavior. Homeschoolers, however, are free to make their decisions based on personal choice, not on what the other 25 kids in the class deem is acceptable that week.
Homeschooled children repeatedly outperform their schooled peers on standardized tests. These high scores are consistent, regardless of the education level of the parents. In other words, whether the parents had an advanced degree or never finished high school, their children's scores were consistently higher than their public- or private-schooled counterparts. A teaching degree is not necessary to teach your children. A loving safe environment with a variety of learning opportunities will provide your kids with everything they need to succeed.
