What is a Homeschool Co-op?
Some call homeschool support groups by the term homeschool co-ops. Particularly, these groups gather on a regular basis. Sometimes they also share the teaching responsibility by letting each parent teach in the subject matter that they have expertise. In this way, parents are “co operating” together and sharing the responsibility of teaching. Sometimes these parent groups will also develop something a little more formal and the homeschool co-op becomes a homeschool co-op school. In this way, parents can be a bit more official in terms of the courses and type of education the students that participate receive. In fact, homeschool co-ops are a great way to meet other homeschool families and to engage in homeschool socialization.
What is a Micro-School?
Micro-schools can vary. Microschooling usually falls within one of two overarching categories: (1) part of private/charter schools or (2) co-op learning with responsibilities shared among parents. Additionally, a third sub-option involves parents registering as homeschoolers, but pooling resources to hire a certified teacher for 10 or fewer children.
