Homeschooling Children: The Advantages and Disadvantages In the year 1983, a brief review about homeschooling was published by ‘Phi Delta Kappan’ based on the book ‘Teach Your Own’ by John Holt, and the book was praised and the author admired for his spirit. Although they predicted that not many people will turn to homeschooling in the following years, the statistics proved them wrong. In fact, between 1999 and 2007 the percentage of homeschoolers in the United States has increased about 74% (Kunzman, 2009). Now to understand this increase, a survey was done by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) in 2007 and 88% of homeschool parents said they were concerned about the environment in conventional schools, thus decided to homeschool

In his essay, Freire talks about education being similar to political oppression because students don 't get to take part. He believes that the student and the teacher should learn from each other, similar to the Montessori learning style.

When I was growing up I went to a Montessori school, and I can personally say that the hands-on learning helped me a lot because I think that I can learn better if I actually practice the task that is given to me. I think that students will learn better if they get to practice school work in class, instead of the teacher doing all of the work.

Students in home-school will meet with more people working in different fields, which will help the students know common senses of life.
