Gifted education is a subject very near and dear to my heart! It is the reason why I began homeschooling in the first place. After we started, I was surprised at how many other homeschooling benefits there are! If your child is bored in school and you have been wanting to homeschool high school but you're afraid, I have some suggestions.
Gifted and Stuck in School!
If your child is gifted and stuck in school, I offer many resources dedicated to homeschooling gifted children that may help:

Please don't avoid homeschooling out of fear. Fear is a lousy reason - fear is something that can prevent you from hearing God. My job is to remove the fear, so that you can hear what you are called to do. There is nothing to fear! Studies show that homeschoolers do just fine and in fact outperform their public school peers!
For more encouragement, here are some short video clips. These may help remove the fear, and remind you that you aren't the only one who knows what it's like to have gifted teens in a public school.
