Can the world be your textbook? There truly is no better education than travel, especially for today's 21st Century student and it is easiest for homeschooled or home educated kids to slow travel with their families long term.
There are endless ways to travel with kids, but extended travel gives one the advantages of deeper immersion in another culture and language, thus deeper understanding and advantages. We homeschool in English, but also dip from time to time in local foreign schools so we monoligual parents can raise a fluent trilingual.
More and more families are taking advantage of homeschooling and how it allows for family travel, education and deep bonding through shared memories. Sometimes just the Mom takes the kids and the Dad stays at home or meets them on the road for a shorter period or they hook it up with some of his work travel. Some homeschool for just a year of travel or shorter stints over several years.
Travel for school can be done in one's home country or around the world and since we've been doing it for 6 years to 44 countries on 5 continents on just $23/day per person, we know it might be the cheapest way to travel the world as a family.
Some call it travel schooling, unschooling or world schooling, the Brits call it home education, but no matter what you call it, travel and education is a combo that can't be beat. Find some ways to fit it in with your family, even if it is just exploring your neighborhood or local multicultural events. You can use our videos and posts to homeschool and travel virtually.
