Joan in GE Posted February 29, 2012 Share Posted February 29, 2012 Hi all, Dd and I were at the open house for a local uni today listening to the Science of Education promotion when I thought about how some of the Swiss cantons are requiring parents to have a teaching degree in order to home educate and how it is a waste when a lot of an Education degree is learning how to deal with classroom dynamics, etc. Although I wasn't an education major or minor, I did take some courses such as Educational Psychology, which have helped me in teaching my children...Then I thought: What if there was a set of college courses designed specifically to prepare a potential parent to home educate their child(ren)????? Ok, I can see a negative in that possibly states could start to require such courses...But the positive is that there are courses which could be really useful to a person planning to home educate at some point in the future... I don't really see how such studies would qualify as a minor, since they couldn't be a major, but I wasn't sure how else to even start to think of it...except possibly a degree at an Associate College for example... Just thought I'd drop this idea into the hive think tank, Joan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
