Thinking about homeschooling? With education options up in the air for 2020, you may be wondering what the best choice is for your child(ren), home, and family. If you’re considering homeschool, Erik & Emily can help.  

They've raised their five children in Manhattan and have homeschooled since 2007. Their children are currently ages 13 - 23. The oldest just graduated from college on scholarship, and the youngest is schooling at her own pace with Down Syndrome.  

Erik and Emily will share information based on 13 years experience within the NYC Homeschool system.
They'll discuss:
  • What homeschooling actually looks like day-to-day (hint: it’s not about recreating public school at home)
  • How to handle the paperwork required by NYS and NYC to homeschool (another hint: it’s not very complicated)
  • Any special training or expertise you need to homeschool (short answer: if you’re considering this webinar, you already know everything you need to succeed!)
  • How homeschooling fits with working from home
  • Some educational and family benefits they’ve experienced homeschooling
  • Some challenges they've experienced homeschooling
  • Additional resources and guidance in case you’d like to dive deeper

Thursday, July 9, 2020, 7:00 PM until 8:00 PM
