WHAT STARTED MY JOURNEY
My perspective on education comes from being a mother of seven, the grandmother of eleven, a para-educator in a Christian school, and a business owner. During the unwarranted closure of the schools, I home schooled two of my grandchildren, one who had attended private school and the other public school. What I quickly observed was the private schooled child was well advanced compared to the child in public school. There are variables that could explain this inconsistency, including different learning abilities. However, I find it of concern that an academic achievement gap reportedly exists between the public and private schools.
