#4 Why Home Education? Understanding what’s best for your child With Gabriela Galasinska

Why do parents decide to Home Educate? During the covid lockdown, families were forced to homeschool their children due to school closures. For most families, this was their first experience of home education. Many have decided to opt to continue. In this fourth episode of the podcast, Syd catches up with Gabriela, a mother of two children. Like many parents, when Covid hit, Gabriela started to teach her two children at home. She realised they were both much happier, as neither of them enjoyed the traditional schooling system. They referred to school as feeling like they were in prison. Once Gabriela realised the potential of home education, she enrolled both of her children to UK Virtual School. They haven’t looked back since!

UK Virtual School isn’t just any online school – We dare to be different! We offer a flexible online British Education adapted for the modern world, catering for Year 1 to iGCSEs for Home Educating families, Expats, and World Schoolers.
