As in most things we seek out, we like to do so knowing that we have people supporting us. Living on the road is no different, which is where roadschool groups come into play. Teaching while living on the road requires more support because now, not only are you working, your kids are working too.
What Is Roadschooling?
In its simplest form, roadschooling is homeschooling on the road. With more and more families moving into RV’s full time to live, work, and travel, kids still need schooling.
Roadschooling can be done from anywhere. And if you are the parent that can handle being both the parent and the teacher, then I would say you might just be a superhero. But even superheroes need community!
There are many families roadschooling their kids nowadays. Thanks to the internet, it is quite easy to get in touch and stay in touch with other traveling families. If you want more information about Roadschooling, read How to Homeschool While Traveling: Your Guide to Roadschooling.
With that said, we’ve got seven of the best roadschool groups for you to connect with. After all, it takes a village.
