    OH, CANADA Here’s a nice profile of “old school homeschoolers” in the Great White North.

    The emphasis, Stephan says, isn’t on testing, but on learning. “When you’re working day by day with a child, evaluation is not as important. When a child sits down to do a math lesson, you know if they can do it,” he says.

    “If they’re having problems, we don’t make it a big issue. It’s not a matter of passing or failing.”

    Homeschooling for them is not just an experiment, it’s a lifestyle.

    “We’re teaching them to enjoy learning,” Stephan says, “so that when they leave our home they can continue to learn and they’ll know how to learn because they’ve been learning all their lives.”
