I believe that parents should have the option to educate their child(ren) in the most appropriate setting. Our family chose to use both the homeschool and public school settings, depending upon our own child’s passion. However, my heart had a special place for homeschooling because it gave our family a special bond and appreciation for education that is very lacking in our society.
Patty Sepp has a very full life in the homeschooling community, even three years after her youngest graduated from high school. In addition to numerous geography related classes and offerings, she specifically targets teen leadership development as an advisor for the Glendale, Arizona YMCAYouth in Government program. Students in each chapter spend several weeks learning about the governmental and legislative process. Then, all the chapters in Arizona have a Model Legislature weekend at the state capitol. It is a very in-depth program with weekly assignments, and is time-intensive for the advisors.
