Re: Home schooling for Cruisers

I am saying this from a study, having gone ashore /off the boat for my sons last 2 years of school.

However ; I support the home [boat] schooling]. You should well find that the set work may only take 1.5-2 hours per day and that you can include so much practical applications - obviously maths, physics geography etc.

You will also find many other cruising kids and a vhf and later. when separated, an HF will allow the kids to stay in contact. [You flash types probably have satellite and/or email]

You will find the children grow rapidly into accepting responsibility and taking on tasks you thought only adults or older teens would take on.

The benefits of travelling and meeting people from all walks of life is a lifelong reward.
