A note from a family:
I hope this finds you well. I wanted to expound on a particular subject that was to be assessed during our visit. It was when Simeon was asked what he learned in 'science.' You see, slaughtering and processing a turkey was so much more than a 'science' or 'biology' lesson. So much more than a box to be checked. It was a lesson about life and death. About gratitude, a profound sense of gratitude for this bird's life in exchange for nourishment of our own.
Indeed, any 'schoolish' metric or standard could not measure the profundity of the experience. For us, there are no subjects or grades. Learning is inextricably linked to living. Living a full and rich life in which everyone is free to discover and learn what they wish, when they wish and how they wish.
We do not use grades or tests to measure the efficacy of learning. Instead, we use trust, trust in the journey. I fully understand that this style of 'schooling' may seem esoteric or difficult to accept as valid. My sincere hope in sharing all this is to give you a glimpse into the uniqueness of our life and that your program, ByDesign, supports this.
It is perhaps uncommon and certainly not for everyone but it works for us and it flows beautifully.
The ByDesign home education program focuses on supporting passions and pursuits of students, with a fit for learning that works best for you. We deliver support, encouragement and trust.
