HSHSP Ep 65: Homeschooling in UK and US

HSHSP Ep 65: Homeschooling in UK and USHSHSP Ep 65: Homeschooling in UK and US

We’re SO excited for Episode 65! We’re talking to our friend, Kat Patrick today!

Kat has lived for 25 years and homeschooled her kids in England (United Kingdom). Her family’s recent move to Texas is quite a change for them!

She is chatting with us about the differences in homeschooling between the UK and the US! Things are quite different there but homeschooling is popular. You don’t want to miss this fun geography lesson!

Kat is a fascinating person. She earned her PhD in English from the University of Delaware, the very university where several of the HSHSP team’s homeschool graduates are going to college. She moved to England and has enjoyed 25 years there.

When her teens began homeschooling highschool, Kat found that she needed to develop her own English course for her homeschool highschoolers because she couldn’t find a best-fit course for them. That course soon became an internet program with students all over the world. You can check her program out at Dreaming Spires Home Learning.

Kat blogs at boyschooling.blogspot.com. She is a contributor to Learning Tangent homeschool magazine.

Here’s a wonderful article about Kat’s family and their homeschool that was done by a major newspaper in UK (the SAT that article refers to is more of an achievement test, not a college admissions test).

Join us for this wonderful chat about the difference between homeschooling in England and US.
