Each student has an ideal ecosystem in which to learn. For public school students, it’s often a classroom for eight hours per day sitting in quiet with 30 other students. For online homeschool students, the learning environment is not a classroom but a living room or a study. It then becomes the parent or guardian’s responsibility to help each student find his or her best learning environment. It’s the student’s responsibility to honestly (and respectfully) communicate what variables in the environment are and are not working for them, all the while doing the schoolwork to the best of his or her ability.
