Hello, greetings everyone
1. Casey is home schooled. She studies regular schoolbooks but her mother is her only teacher. What do you think might be good and bad about home schooling?
Usually, in my country, this study method is used in rural or hard-to-reach areas, but in the period of the pandemic it became very popular using the Internet as a special tool, with parents leading the entire teaching and learning process.
Of course, this method has advantages and disadvantages. one advantage is that it let bring education to people living in zone where there aren`t school and one disadvantage is that children don`t live a complete school experience context but priority is that they can get education
2. Does it seem unusual that Casey helps people who cannot walk learn how toride horses? Have you seen people with disabilities do other unexpected things?
I have not really seen people with disabilities doing things beyond the normal according to their specific conditions, but the internet is full of extraordinary cases, so that the ministries of education have many registered cases to develop special education plans, programs and projects.

” About Homeschooled”.
Everything has advantages and disadvantages. Personally, I am not the favor of homeschooling. But if the circumstances of a family have no other option but to adopt this system, then it’s fine.
Homeschooling can cause socialization difficulties; Children use to get into the habit of loneliness. It’s not an easy task. This system requires a lot of planning and discipline.
2) Parents must tell their children to share some amount or things whatever they have with them with the disabled and needy children. children must take care of and show respect to disabled children.
Greeting Maestro Sersea
Personally, I think that to be home schooled it must have pros and cons because young people could lose the opportunity to interact with other guys of their same age. But I also have heard about the effectiveness to this scholar programs.
Thank you so much,
