Are you planning to homeschool your children? Or perhaps you’re interested in supplementing their public or private school education with additional coursework, such as second-language acquisition. Whichever situation applies to you and your children, you’ve probably noticed that since your child was born, they have been naturally acquiring language skills through imitation, repetition, songs, and games. This ease of language acquisition usually lasts until a child is 8 years old.

When you are deciding where to send your child to school, you generally have two choices. You can go the traditional route of public school or you can select a private school. Each option has pros and cons, and in many cases it can come down to personal choice.
One of the benefits of private schools is small class size. Nearly 90% of all private schools in the U.S. have fewer than 300 students and the average size of all private schools is only 146, which generally means they have smaller class sizes than public schools.
From the public school angle, being larger does have some advantages, though. Public schools are often able to offer specialized class subjects that private schools don’t. This can include foreign languages, science classes and others. Larger public scho Continue reading

Indeed, almost as many who identify with the Christian faith say that religion is a very important part of their lives–73% of people say as much, in Continue reading
