DH and I are planning on homeschooling our daughter, 4. I'll be the primary "teacher," as I stay home with her. He has some concerns about homeschooling - mainly how will we know we're being effective and that DD is learning everything she "should?"
Admittedly I would unschool if it were up to me. However, I have to compromise here. What can we do to make sure she's on the right track? He wants to encourage as much freedom and creativity in learning as we can while still teaching her the things she'll need to succeed in college and in her career. Basically, he doesn't want our homeschooling to close any doors for her.
In our state we have to do standardized testing every 3 years beginning in third grade. Though I have real issues with standardized tests, he welcomes the feedback. However, he doesn't want to wait that long and wants to be able to measure progress yearly.
