How long homeschooling takes each day depends on your approach or philosophy. Many people consider simply living and interacting with the family each day to be "education" enough. Other families follow a rigid or semi-rigid daily academic schedule that can accomplish the basics in two to three hours. This doesn´t mean the child covers the same amount as in six hours of "regular" school per day - homeschooling is far more intense and time-productive. Homeschooling can cover in one week (of two- or three-hour days) what can take two weeks or more in a traditional school setting. One-on-one teaching and the advantage of flowing, uninterrupted focus and attention on the part of the student make homeschooling very efficient. When you consider the field trips, park days, and other extra-curricular activities available to homeschoolers, a great deal is going on.
