Many children do NOT complete high school with a few dominant ideas that could be used as capital knowledge that could generate income nor do they have the character and conduct necessary for adulthood.
The sad statistics are showing that young adults are forgetting information from their education and rejected philosophies of life so important to their parents.
When children enter society with forgotten information and rejected philosophies, they struggle to find a career or struggle with grades in college, while accepting philosophies opposite to those they were raised by.
With this heartbreaking reality to education, a homeschool mother, who devoted her life with the resources so many stated to be the 'best', is faced with an unfruitful purpose to all of her years of effort.
The reason this happens is because a child's education must penetrate the mind and heart, or it will be a mere veneer laid on the surface of their nature that once they are on their own, this veneer is peeled off to expose the internal things that have educated them.
Without approaching high school in a way that teaches intellectual and spiritual education that marks a career and philosophies of life, a teenager will look at education as a part of life that has an end, instead of a one phase preparing them for another phase that follows.
This approach to education encourages cramming for tests, both in school and in life. Children will know what answers will give them a passing grade and approval just to earn a diploma and get out on their own.
Without any idea of what to do differently, a homeschool mother looks at accredited hours as something needed to award a diploma, instead of seeing it as skills to be used as capital knowledge and philosophies that will be carried into life. Overtime, this view adds to a child celebrating a milestone without any concept of what to do next.
I'm speaking from personal experience in my own education. That's why I became a student of Charlotte Mason's original writing and diligently worked to creating The Prepared Framework that takes the educational philosophies of Charlotte Mason and fits them into a learning system that prepares a child for adulthood!
Now, you can discover the educational philosophies that earns accredited hours while marking out a career and philosophies.
