Advantages of Homeschooling

Homeschooling is one alternative that is becoming really popular these days, growing at about
seven to 15 percent every year since it has broken ground several years ago. To date, there are
about two million children undergoing the program.

Although there have been arguments against it, children who have undergone the program
actually do well on standardized tests and even do well in college and universities. They are even
commended for their abilities to learn on their own through college and independence when they
eventually join the work force. Of course, this also depends on the learner and the kind of training
that they provide. Below are some of the advantages of homeschooling:

Flexible and dynamic programs

Freedom is perhaps at the heart of the homeschool program. Children are allowed to set their own
pace in learning the lessons. There are no time pressures to learn a certain task or to keep up with
other people. The lessons can also be tailorfitted to the needs of the children.

For instance, if they are already good in Math and may need some work in English, the program
can incorporate more time with English lessons and less with Math. The secret to the success of
the homeschooling program is the flexibility and dynamism that it offers to students. It takes into
account the learning pace of the child, their abilities and even their learning style.

No fix schedule

Because the program is done at home with parents as teachers, there is no need for a fix time
schedule. This does not however mean that they wont learn the discipline of rising early in bed
and adhering to a time-schedule. In homeschooling, lessons may start at a specific time but it may
end whenever the child is through. For instance, if the child is able to breeze through the lessons
fast, he or she can relax on the remaining time. There is no need to stay in the class and study.

No fix place.

Learning can be done and achieved anywhere. This is why most homeschooling parent do not just
make their homes their childrens classrooms but also everywhere they feel their children can
learn. For instance, in teaching a lesson on plants and animals, they can conduct the lessons
inside a Science museum or a zoo. With a homeschooling program, there are actually more field
trips and more practical lessons than traditional classroom lecture.
