Home schooling is a popular way to educate children all around the globe for a variety
of reasons. Main home schooling pros and cons follow.
Cons
Level of Learning - Too many people think that those children who are home schooled
will not receive appropriate levels of education compared to students learning in public
and private schools. On the contrary, parents of home scholars work with their local
boards of education, principals and / or other educational consultants to ensure they are
meeting the requirements set forth.
Socialization - Another negative viewpoint is that those students who are studying at
home do not get to mingle enough with their peer groups and other instructors,
administration and school personnel and teachers. And that's just hogwash. Students at
home meet with others in home school groups to tour all types of local and far away
places that coordinate with their study plans. And equally if not more important, home
school students are introduced to real life people throughout their days: bankers,
grocers, and other professionals introduced through their program studies and real life
as they go around on errands with parents.
Lack of Routine / Regimented Days - Some view a lack of disciplined hours Monday
through Friday with home schooled students as negative. However, many home school
parents establish routines at home, too. Children are not left haphazardly running
around the streets unattended.
Lack of Real World Environment & Prep- And still others believe that home schooled
children will lack environmental and other preparation for real life that public and
private school supposedly teach their students. Again, more hogwash. Home schooled
children learn science, technology, music, gym, any and all subjects - only more
thoroughly, because they are focusing on what they are learning, not being bored with
subjects taught over and over to help slower paced learners so that everyone is up to
speed.
Pros
Private for Less Money - A home school education is like enjoying private education
without the cost. Students get more one-on-one help, targeted lessons and advanced
learning opportunities as their teachers do not have to teach to all levels, often covering
lower-learning levels that bore more average and advanced learners.
Improved Targeted Subjects - lessons in the home school environment are also to be
customized much more easily than those in public and private school. Results include
much higher levels of education with targeted useful knowledge to help students after
graduation.
Higher Grades - Home schooled students are known to average much higher grades
than their peers in public and private schools. Many get accepted to top colleges and
universities on scholarships.
Boredom Busters - Home schooling allows students to move ahead to better topics.
