  • He vigorously attacked progressive school reformers such as Horace Mann and John Deweyand argued for the dismantling of the state's influence in education
  • They viewed it as a natural, experiential aspect of life that occurs as the members of the family are involved with one another in daily living
  • (parent education, finances, and educational philosophies, future educational plans, where they live, past educational experiences of the child, child’s interests and temperament) classical education embraced study of literature, poetry, drama, philosophy, history, art, and languages.Mason's philosophy of education is probably best summarised by the principles given at the beginning of each book mentioned above. Two key mottos taken from those principles are "Education is an atmosphere, a discipline, a life" and "Education is the science of relations." She believed that children were born persons and should be respected as such; they should also be taught the Way of the Will and the Way of Reason. Her motto for students was "I am, I can, I ought, I will."
  • At the other spectrum is the loosely structured homeschooling, where basically everything goes. There are no rules, like teaching music for a whole year, or finishing grades 1 to 5 in two years. At the other side of the pole is the highly-structured homeschooling. It can go as extreme as a parent that simulates the classroom experience with a desk, blackboard, flagpole, even uniforms and IDs as teacher and student.
  • Homeschooling

    1. 1. Homeschooling home education or home based learning
    2. 2. Homeschooling or homeschool • is the education of children at home, typically by parents or by tutors, rather than in other formal settings of public or private school. • is a legal option for parents in many countries, allowing them to provide their children with a learning environment as an alternative to public or private schools outside the individual's home.
    3. 3. Homeschooling or homeschool • This form of schooling is recognized by the Department of Education (DepEd) provided that the parent-teacher is a college graduate and is able to provide at least 4 hours of instruction for kindergarten to 7th grade. • Homeschooling means no pressure of learning all things. It is done at anytime, anywhere by the learner, mother or provider.
    4. 4. Three reasons of homeschooling parents in the United States 1. concern about the school environment 2. to provide religious or moral instruction 3. dissatisfaction with academic instruction at public and private schools
    5. 5. History • The earliest public schools in the modern West began in the early 16th century in the German states of Gotha and Thurungia. • However, even in the 18th century, the vast majority of people in Europe lacked formal schooling, which means they were homeschooled, tutored or received no education at all.
    6. 6. History • In the 1960s, Rousas John Rushdoony began to advocate homeschooling, which he saw as a way to combat the intentionally secular nature of the U.S. public school system.
    7. 7. History • During this time, the American educational professionals Raymond and Dorothy Moore began to research the academic validity of the rapidly growing Early Childhood Education movement. • The Moores began to publish their view that formal schooling was damaging young children academically, socially, mentally, and even physiologically.
    8. 8. History "This is like saying, if you can help a child by taking him off the cold street and housing him in a warm tent, then warm tents should be provided for all children – when obviously most children already have even more secure housing."
    9. 9. History One common theme in the homeschool philosophies of both Holt and the Moores is that: “home education should not be an attempt to bring the school construct into the home, or a view of education as an academic preliminary to life.”They viewed it as a natural, experiential aspect of life that occurs as the members of the family are involved with one another in daily living
    10. 10. Methodology • Families, for a variety of reasons chose different educational methods, representing a variety of educational philosophies and paradigms. • Classical education • Charlotte Mason education • Montessori method • Theory of multiple intelligences • Unschooling • Radical Unschooling • Waldorf education • School-at-home
    11. 11. Homeschooling programs in the Philippines • Some Philippine homeschooling programs include the following: – Alternative Learning of Asia – Angelicum College – Catholic Filipino Academy (CFA) – Colegio de San Juan de Letran – Harvest Christian School International – The Master’s Academy (TMA) – The School of Tomorrow – Gopala Play Center
    12. 12. Homeschooling as an alternative to sending kids to school • Mainstream education in the Philippines has been around for more than a hundred years. • By the time children start to walk and talk, parents start to canvas for the most reputable school that will raise them best, and one they can afford at that. • But a new movement led by the Homeschooling Association of the Philippine Islands (HAPI) is changing the landscape of education by advocating homeschooling in the Philippines.
    13. 13. Homeschooling as an alternative to sending kids to school • Established in 2009, HAPI is an organization composed of homeschooling families, as well as various accredited schools who offer home school programs. “Homeschool is different from home study.” Home study is schooling supervised by a teacher or a tutor who drops by a student’s house. “Home school, on the other hand, is a form of education where the parent is the teacher and the child is the student,” - Edric Mendoza
    14. 14. How it works • Homeschooling has two existing movements: – loosely structured homeschooling – highly-structured homeschooling
    15. 15. How it works • HAPI advocates homeschooling in the middle of the spectrum, where parents enroll their kids in existing schools with home school programs accredited by the Department of Education. – Examples of these accredited schools are The Masters Academy (TMA), Kid’s World, and Heritage Academy.
    16. 16. How it works • “There are assigned consultants who will literally walk you through the entire program. Some are hands-off where they will show you the materials you can use. Then you can just check with them from time to time,” Mendoza says. • It will be up to the parents to create the schedules and teach their children according to the curriculum.
    17. 17. How it works • Since they are not confined to a typical school’s 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. schedule, homeschoolers usually devote their mornings to academics, while afternoons are for extracurricular activities, like theater and sports. • Parent-teachers may avail of school curricula, lesson plans, teacher-training, and instructional materials through DepEd accredited homeschooling programs.
    18. 18. Time and Commitment to Homeschool • Homeschooling, however, would be a big feat for parents who both work full-time. One parent has to devote his or her time to oversee the education of their children.

    24. 24. Waldorf pedagogy distinguishes three broad stages in child development • The early years education focuses on providing practical, hands-on activities and environments that encourage creative play. • Secondary education focuses on developing critical understanding and fostering idealism.
