Hawaii’s public schools experienced its third consecutive decline in enrollment in 2022.

Parents decide to take their kids out of school because of violence, bullying, too much testing, and health issues caused by the pandemic.

Most parents plan on homeschooling their children for a short period of time, but stick to it once they realize all the benefits it has on their kids.

The Time4Learning online homeschooling program allows parents to act as a coach for their child. This allows the child to be independent but lean on their parent of help when needed.

The president of this program, John Edelson, says schools can be either too slow or too fast paced for some students, and this program allows a child to learn at their own pace.
