Even before the pandemic, homeschooling has been gaining popularity in the Philippines.
Homeschooling allows students to learn outside of school and under the supervision of their parents or tutors following the regulations set by the Department of Education (DepEd) and the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).
Throughout the years, the number of families who use home study programs has been increasing. At present, homeschooling has become a widely accepted valuable alternative to traditional education.
Homeschooling has enabled celebrities to continue their education despite a busy schedule. While it may be easy to think that they have all the fame, awards, and fancy things in the world, despite all the glamour, education sometimes seems to be an elusive dream for them.
