Homeschool vs public school- an insanely controversial debate in which a student’s success and future are put on the line. The schooling years of a person are absolutely detrimental to whether or not that person will grow up to be prosperous and happy in life. Therefore, the method of schooling is an incredibly important topic of debate. Modern homeschooling began with John Holt, an educational theorist, who began having concerns about the mechanical-like characteristics of students who went through the public school system. A large motivator for people wanting to homeschool was having increased religious freedom, as public schools have become more and more secular and worldly.
You might think whoever is homeschooled is the luckiest person around. Laying in their pajamas all day and never do school. Yes some homeschoolers are privileged but it’s not all sunshine and rainbows. You might think you know what homeschooling is, but do you really? Homeschooling, or home education, is the education of children inside the home conducted by either a parent or a tutor.
Abstract We are basically conducting a research on homeschooling. In this education system a student is basically given education in his/her home by his parents or a tutor. Before introduction of the formal education system families used to taught their children in homes. Formal education system is although mostly used education system but homeschooling has grown in popularity and effectiveness over past few decades. There are many studies that favor homeschooling, focusing the good results of home schooled students.
In an article, it says, “Children can get worn out in the same environment from morning to evening and do not get as much social exposure as they would in a standard classroom setting.” If you think about it, homeschooled students don’t get to face the problems that other students get to face. Most students have a moment in their school years when they face something difficult, whether its a school bully or just a person who is hateful toward others. Students face these type of thing in public schools and private schools no matter what, but homeschooled students don't face those type of challenges. Homeschooled students don't have to worry about boring, stupid high school drama too. Even though homeschooled students don't face these challenges, they still miss out on the good things in high school.
Even the practical activities, field trips, and all other activities in a proper method and with the same syllabuses in the schools. This home education system was started in North America, Europe and in many commonwealth countries. And till they practice it in a large scale and even in many countries around the world are using this a s a new way of educating children. Legal requirements for homeschooling in the U.S. vary from place to place. Some states have few or no requirements; others ask for portfolio reviews or standardized testing at certain intervals.
The length of study in the public school is not as fast as in the homeschooling. In the public school we may believe that everything has been strictly constructed. Thus, the student’s education follows the regulation as well. In 9 years the students only reach the kindergarten, elementary school and junior high school. It is different from those who belong to homeschooling.
Home schooling is a trending concept that is popular mostly in US and around the world. Home schooling preferred often by the parents that have environmental concerns, religious beliefs, lack of confidence to the education quality of the public and private schools and inadequacy of curriculum. They believe that they can give better education to their children at home. According to Jamie Martin (Homeschooling 101: What Is Homeschooling, 2012), home schooling began to grow in the 1970s, when popular writers and researchers such as John Holt and Dorothy and Raymond Moore wrote about the educational reforms and they alleged that home schooling is a valid educational alternative. In addition, according to National Home Education Research Institutes’ 2012 data, there are more than 2 million home schooled children in US with the percentage swiftly increasing by 7 percent to 15 percent each year.
Home schooling is legally accepted in all 50 states of the U.S., but each state has its own laws that a family must adhere to. Currently, it is estimated that over one million families school their children at home. Most of these families include a breadwinner and a stay-at-home parent who does most of the teaching, although there are single parent families and dual career families who home school.” according to Teach Target. Personally, I believe that homeschooling isn’t the best option for kids; they rather go to school to help them with their social life, their level of understanding and to help them get inspired by the surroundings. There are a lot of reasons why parents should stop homeschooling their children and send them to public or private schools.
Introduction: Homeschooling has been around longer than two hundred years but has recently became a ‘modern’ form of schooling about fifty or so years ago. In Webster’s dictionary the definition of homeschooling can be found as “the practice of teaching one 's own children at home, instead of sending them to school.” There can be many reasons why some parents make the discussion to keep their children at home instead of sending them to public or a private school. But, not everyone can do homeschooling. It has its pros and cons just like everything else. Negative side of Homeschooling: Many people find homeschooling to not be what is best for any child.
