Twenty years ago, homeschooling children wasn't quite the norm, but it's become much more accepted today, said Edwin Myers, an author and publisher of homeschooling materials for families and some schools across the nation and on Guam.
Myers is on Guam visiting his son, Matthew, who was homeschooled and is now serving on the USS City of Corpus Christi, which is homeported on Guam.
"Homeschooling has been a growing movement in the U.S. and around the world.It's gotten to be almost mainstream," Myers said."Today there are, I believe, nearly 20,000 products offered as homeschooling materials, and there are big publishers who publish whole line of homeschooling curriculum."
In 1984, Myers founded Providence Project, which publishes homeschooling materials including "CalcuLadder" and "ReadyWriter" that help parents teach math and writing skills to their children.
"Our products are sold primarily to Christian-based schools and Christian homeschoolers," Myers said, adding that in the 1980s parents would approach him seeking homeschool materials.
Myers said 85 percent of his company's sales now are wholesale to retailers.
"The industry has grown up and matured a lot.It's an interesting environment for small publishers like us.We've been fortunate enough to hang in there," Myers said.
Reasons
Myers said there are a variety of reasons that families decide to teach their children at home instead of enrolling children in public or private schools.
"Most homeschoolers have a religious motivation ... some do it for academic reasons," Myers said.
...
Myers and Middlebrooke said homeschooling was both exciting and fulfilling in that they had a greater role in their children's upbringing than they would have if they had enrolled their children in traditional schools.
...
"I would suggest to parents who are looking into homeschooling to talk to other parents who already are doing it and see if it's really for you," Myers said.
