Homeschool stories: Julia Overfield

By Mississippi Center for Public Policy

“I want my children to be well educated students, but more importantly to keep their lives as stable as possible without having to be consumed with everything ‘socially distant related.’ I truly believe that homeschooling will keep my children's mental health safest. 

“We made the decision to homeschool because I am opposed to children being in a ‘masked’ environment, along with the uncertainty of random school closings paired with disrupted virtual and in-person schooling.

“I’ve had fleeting thoughts of homeschooling in the past, but only during middle school years, not during this time of elementary studies. 

“Fortunately, I am a work from home mom, and I believe the monies that would've been spent for school supplies/clothing/random fundraisers etc. throughout the year should hopefully balance itself out."
