Does Rick Santorum Have the Right Idea About Homeschooling? A New Book by Gail Nagasako, Homeschooling: Why and How, Delves into the Benefits of Homeschooling

Rick Santorum made headlines when he talked about his seven kids being homeschooled and with the release of Gail Nagasako's new book, Homeschooling: Why and How, people can now learn about the benefits of this education option for kids

News Release from homeschoolingwhyandhow.com

We’ve all heard of homeschooling, but how much do you know about it? Homeschooling has often been forced to the back of the classroom, seen as a last resort choice for troubled children or overly-protected ones. What if there was a book that dispelled these notions? A book that showed homeschooling can be the best path for many students to succeed and live a vibrant social life? The book is titled Homeschooling: Why and How

In Homeschooling, author Gail Nagasako outlines how to provide a full education tailored specifically to fulfill all types of students. The notion that homeschooled students miss out on positive socializations is proven wrong. Through real life examples from the numerous families she’s personally counseled, she show readers how to tailor an education for all types of students. She also details why and how a homeschooled youngster doesn’t miss out on positive socialization.

If anyone knows the ins and outs of homeschooling it is author Gail Nagasako. She has done everything from starting an alternative school to writing articles on education to counseling parents in the Hawaii school system. If you’re looking to explore other educational avenues or interested in learning more about how your child learns, Homeschooling: Why and How is a must read

Gail Nagasako lives in Wailuku and continues to play a pivotal role in the Hawaii education system. Parents started learned about her son’s successful transition into the working world from the homeschooling system (http://hifocused.com/), so Gail was receiving endless amounts of phone calls and emails a day from parents simply wanting to know about homeschooling. With the amount of calls increasing, local publications requests to write about homeschooling, she knew she had to share her experience. Thus Homeschooling: Why and How was born.
