- He also explained the reason for their preference
- Drew is the founder and host of the popular vlog Biyahe ni Drew
Drew Arellano and Iya Villania recently revealed during a podcast interview with Slater Young and Kryz Uy that they prefer their three kids, Primo, Leon, and Alana, to learn through homeschooling rather than attending classes in a school.
The host-vlogger said that in his case, he believed he just wasted money in attending classes at school during his time.
Drew clarified that he has nothing against the schools he attended before, though he believed that homeschooling provides more advantages not only to their kids but also to the entire family.
“Feeling ko I wasted so much time learning stuff that I am not interested in. I kind of wasted a lot of time, I wasted my folks’ money because of that,” the host-vlogger said.
“I just feel that most schools, hindi siya personalized, ‘di ba? Parang one size fits all, aralin ninyo lahat ‘yan. If you fail in one, you’re not that smart, it shouldn’t be the case,” he added.
Iya agreed with her husband, though she also shared some fears about homeschooling.
“One thing that kind of scares me about homeschool, which is why I feel I am more mixed emotions about it, I mean it’s something that I want for my kids, but sometimes I don’t know if I can commit,” Iya said.
Despite these fears, Iya says she is okay with homeschooling. “There are actually more effective ways of learning,” the segment host of ‘24 Oras’ said.

Homeschooling or home education, also known as elective home education, is the education of school-aged children in the safe confines of their homes or other places besides a school. Often conducted by a parent, online teacher, or tutor, many homeschool families use less formal and more personalized methods of learning that are not always found in schools. The actual practice of homeschooling can look very different.
Many Filipino parents, including celebrity dads and moms, chose homeschooling over traditional education. Two of the Filipino celebrities who opted homeschooling for their kids were Rica Peralejo and Jan Marini. According to Jan, she preferred homeschooling for her kids because she wants to focus on their learning abilities.

The mom said that she will not take the risk of getting her kids exposed to the virus.
