One of the things I think a lot of Canadians find hard when homeschooling is finding a curriculum that has Canadian content. One can say well why is having Canadian content so important? There are numerous reasons.
- Canadian math uses metric not imperial.
- Canadian history is obviously going to be more specific when written from a Canadian perspective.
- Canadian geography well don't even get me started with how many curriculum leave it out or just plain have it wrong.
- Canadian cultural studies are also often generalized and not accurate
