Homeschooling with Confidence: Avoiding Common Pitfalls – Israel Wayne, Part 2

“The biggest problem that I have with standardized testing.. is whether parents and educators mean to do this or not… a child’s entire sense of self-worth is predicated on their performance on the standardized test. If they score high on the test, then they are a valuable human being, and if they don’t, then they’re a failure and that they will never amount to anything in life.”Israel Wayne

Uncover the secrets to teaching children how to read, think, reason, and learn independently.
