Susan Henry - Alternatives in Education

Susan Henry, of Springfield, Illinois, home schooled her three children beginning in the early 1990s through the 2000s. She took all three from Kindergarten through the 12th grade, and all three went on to college and successful careers. She talks about that experience at length, giving insights into the benefits and challenges of home schooling. Susan used the Abeka Homeschool curriculum throughout, tailoring her instruction for each child's unique learning style. She concentrated not only on the traditional subjects, but also emphasizing character development as well as her children's socialization skills.
