One of hubby's part-time staff had 2 homeschooling children. They began with ATI then realised that ATI does not prepare them for local college entrance unless you plan to study in US. They ended up sitting for a few compulsory SPM papers as a passport for them to study in local college.
Looks like my plan to fully homeschool my children under ATI has to be cancelled since we can't afford to send them to US to continue their diploma or degree. Furthermore, my eldest dreams of going into the health care jobs like being a doctor or nurse.
They will still be homeschooled but they will be doing SPM and ATI as a supplement for their character building.
