I am curious how many people here on Dev.to homeschool their children (all around the world, not just US), since I'm not part of many communities I figured to ask here. With Covid19 upon us (and not going anywhere anytime soon), virtual school has been a complete disaster in my experience both for my children and for me. I have a 9 and 10 years old in the same school. One kid is under worked, the other over worked like the number of assignments is insane. Teachers barely know how to use the site, they put some assignments on the calendar others are for you to find within the deeply nested links. Then they have this virtual attendance system which I don't understand at all, kids need to check in at 9 and then 2:30 even if they are done with the day's school work. I'm so done with public schools to be honest. Yesterday I learned that the districts need this virtual attendance for funding, that's why teachers been texting and calling like crazy even after my children are done with their assignments.
I am looking mainly for secular (non religious) curriculums I'm kind of liking book shark as a whole kit, but definitely not discarding online curriculums. Besides the core requirements in Texas, I want to add Electronics and Programming to the curriculum since I can teach those two.
If anyone is in the same boat or has been doing it for a while I'd like to hear your experience.
