What is homebound education?

Dawn Marcus
Homebound education should not be confused with home schooling, where the parent has opted to provide full educational training in the home environment. Homebound education is provided by the child's school after a substantial number of absences. In many cases, homebound materials provide modified and abbreviated training for core classes only, with a minimal number of hours weekly required for educational instruction, rather than the full training provided in school. The goal of homebound education is to prevent the child from falling too far behind academically, so that she can successfully re-enter the classroom when she is able to return to school. The longer the child remains on homebound education, the more difficult this transition back to school will be.
