Home Schooling in America: Military Family Finds Stability in Learning at Home

January 11, 2019 3:46

Lindsay and Clifford Jobe have served in the military for 14 years. Like many military families, the couple—who have five children—find themselves moving to a new base in a new state every few years. Adapting to a new home, new friends, and a new school is a lot to ask of children at a young age, which is what motivated the Jobes to begin home schooling. With home schooling, the Jobes set their own schedule and design their own breaks. That’s a big plus for military families, Lindsay Jobe says. The Jobe family was profiled as part of an Education Week video series on home schooling families.
