“When you throw a kid that has a different way of learning into a class with 40 other kids, and they are all taught to learn a particular way, it’s like putting everybody through the conveyor belt.”
That’s what it was like for Sean Tambagahan, who considers himself a victim of the public school system. At six, Sean was diagnosed with ADHD.
“When you have a kid that has a different way of learning, that kid tends to fall behind. And that was my story. I thought I was stupid throughout my public school experience. I found out only later, when I was twenty-two, that I love to learn. I started figuring out how I could read comprehensively and pick up books and learn for myself.”
Sean is now a parent of three boys, age seven, ten, and twelve. He and his wife Candace knew early on, they didn’t want their children in public school. All three boys now attend Clovis Christian Schools.
“We had talks about it, and we were both in agreement that it was important for the kids to stay home and be educated by us, especially in their most formative years. I know that with my kids, they’re three completely different human beings, same parenting style, same DNA, but three completely different kids. So none of them learn the same way. You can’t get that individualized, personalized education in the public school system.”
We are so happy to have Sean and Candace’s three boys at CCS.
