Many parents across America have decided to follow a recent and growing policy to remove their children from public school systems and home-based education. While viewed by many teachers who adversely affect the child's educational development, parents who have taught their children at home will tell you the best for their children. When the struggle for a collegiate school against public schools has an ugly head, both parties will argue their passionate level. But it turns out that two main points always come up in an attempt to discredit homeschooling. Knowing what these items are will help you make informed choices for your family.
Smoke # 1 Kids are not developing adequate social skills
This seems to be the main complaint against home education. Many so-called experts believe that children taught by parents at home do not have enough age to develop good social skills. While this may be true in some cases it is very rare and many home-based homes have on average as many friends and children in schools. Many parents use church groups, neighbors, playgroups and many other social resources to keep their children properly social. Indeed, you can closely monitor the type of children the kids connect with the home school, but the children in public schools are more affected by bad apples!
Smoke # 2 Parents Can not Teach Like Good
These arguments seem to be based on emotional responses that most teachers need to have children receiving homework. Many pedagogues believe that their university education makes them better when it comes to guiding the children. But if you look at education statistics in America you can see how bad the public system has been performing. The flaw system is one of the main reasons parents remove their children from public schools and take their education in their own hands. And with the many different resources available to these parents, it is difficult to argue that the children receive less than adequate education. After all, it has been shown that home schools have academic skills that are as good or, in many cases, better than their public schools. This is because parents can focus on teaching and developing the child's weaknesses. This is not possible in public school where the teacher has to keep the class running and can not be delayed or changed for one student.
There are many more arguments in the homeschool against public discussion that can all fluctuate you somehow or another. So if you are considering learning your children at home, do some research and make a well-informed decision based on facts and not just emotions.
