- The Schedule
Anybody who enters teaching solely for a breezy schedule or carefree lifestyle will be immediately disappointed. Still, there are some benefits to working at a school. For one thing, if your children attend school in the same district, you will all have the same days off. Also, your will have approximately two months off per year for summer vacation. Or if you work in a year-round district, the vacation will spread throughout the year. Either way, it's more than the two weeks paid vacation given in most corporate jobs.

- Your Personality and Humor
The greatest asset you bring to the student each day is your own unique personality. Sometimes in cubicle life, there's a need to blend in and tone down your personality. However teachers absolutely must use their individual gifts to inspire, lead, and motivate their students. And when the job gets tough, sometimes it's only your sense of humor that can keep you moving forward with any sanity.

- Job Security
The world will always need teachers. If you are willing to work hard in any type of environment, you'll find that you can always get work - even as a brand new teacher. Learn your trade, earn your credential, become tenured, and you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing that you have a job you can count on for decades to come.

- Intangible Rewards
Most teachers find themselves encouraged and uplifted by the joys that accompany working with students. You'll cherish the funny things they say, the questions and the stories they write: - birthday cards, drawings, and small tokens of their affection. The hugs, smiles, and laughter will keep you going and remind you of why you became a teacher in the first place.

- Inspiring Students
Each day when you go in front of your students, you never know what you will say or do that will leave a lasting impression on your students. We can all remember something positive (or negative) that one of our school teachers said to us or the class - something that stuck in our minds and informed our viewpoints for all these years. When your bring the full force of your personality and expertise to the classroom, you can't help but inspire your students and mold their impressionable minds. This is a sacred trust we are given as teachers, and definitely one of the benefits of the job.

- Giving Back To The Community
The majority of teachers enter the education profession because they want to make a difference in the world and their communities. This is a noble and valiant purpose that you should always keep in the forefront of your mind. No matter the challenges you face in the classroom, your work truly does have positive ramifications for your students, their families, and the future. Give your best to each student and watch them grow. This is greatest gift of all.

Dans plusieurs états américains, les gouvernements intègrent «l?école à domicile» aux programmes réguliers et offrent tout le support désiré via les cyber-écoles. L?école à domicile, au vu de ses résultats objectifs, est supportée par les pouvoirs publics comme une alternative intéressante dans plusieurs situations et milieux, autant économiquement qu?en termes pédagogiques. Plusieurs cyber-schools comptent plus de 50 000 inscrits !

Mais dans la plupart des pays francophones, la situation est à peu près inversée : les pouvoirs publics marginalisent et compliquent la vie des parents qui choisissent ce mode d?éducation pour leurs enfants.

Et les quelques dérives qui apparaissent dans ce contexte, sont brandies comme justification à encore plus d?entraves et de contrôles. Étrangement, ces dérives n?ont plus cours quand l?alternative est respectée.

S'aider soi-même

La situation étant ce qu?elle est, il ne reste qu?aux parents à s?organiser et c?est ce qu?ils font grâce à Internet.
