The NJLoop is open to all homeschoolers in NJ for discussing homeschooling, sharing homeschooling experiences, and posting announcements of events and activities for homeschoolers.
We are a diverse group, but at the highest level our reasons for homeschooling are all the same – our children’s education is very important to us, and we think that teaching them at home is the best education we are able to give them at this time in their lives. A recent, nationwide study of adults who had been homeschooled as children, showed that on average they were significantly happier, and also more satisfied with their jobs, than those adults who had not been.
On NJLoop, we learn from, help, and encourage each other in our endeavor to educate our children. While we do not all agree on the best ways to teach our children, we do support each parent’s responsibility and right to choose what they believe is the best way to care for and raise their children. However, messages promoting abortion in any way are not permitted anywhere on the NJLoop.
Many of our listmembers are Christians and this will be reflected in some of the messages. In the past, this has been a problem for some non-Christian homeschoolers while not bothering others. If this becomes a problem for you, you can always unsubscribe (instructions on how to do this are automatically included at the bottom of each posted message).
We encourage listmembers to join local support groups, and to find groups of homeschoolers with similar philosophies to their own. Our “Links” section lists statewide and regional homeschool organizations in New Jersey, and local homeschool support groups.
When you join, you will receive a Welcome Message with further information that doesn't fit here.
