My husband and I both admit we originally didn’t consider homeschooling because we both work. But desperation over the amount of time I spent working with a child in public school convinced me that homeschooling couldn’t be more work, just different work. I am very happy that a friend who home-schools felt the same way and encouraged me to reconsider my options.
Here is a blog entry from the Washington Times Homeschool community that points out others are also realizing that the amount of time spent on public school isn’t negligible. And that other couples where both spouses work are finding ways to make homeschooling work.
