(examiner.com) Hip hop soul musician, Erykah Badu, told Babble about homeschooling her son to give him an academic advantage. Her two younger children currently homeschool.
I wanted to give Seven Sirius special attention academically, to give him an advantage. So by being home-schooled he learned how to learn — he learned how to solve problems in a nontraditional way. In doing that he developed an edge in his schoolwork. He enjoys challenges. He pushes himself. He does his homework voluntarily. He does not want to miss school or be late or be untidy or not have his things in order because that was a big part of how he was brought up.
Erykah Badu's son is in school now, but she says, "when school stops, learning continues. . ."
Erykah Badu birthed each of her babies at home with siblings present and "a big part of it."
