The flexibility of homeschooling allows families to pursue creative —and sometimes unorthodox—routes to educate their children. For example, as COVID-19 continues to impose new normals around the country, many families have stepped out of the house, stepped into an RV, and taken the show on the road (literally): they homeschool and work on the go, via a homeschooling method sometimes informally known as “roadschooling.”

Families trying it out for the first time in 2021 join thousands of other families who have already blazed the path, as these new roadschoolers take in the sights, meet new folks, and learn a lot along the way. Take a look at these four families’ answers to common questions about roadschooling, and maybe get a few tips for your family to try it out for one night, a week, or longer!
