Home Schooling

Home Schooling
For Against
 
arguesreason
It is both the right and the responsibility of parents to educate their children as they see fit until the child reaches maturity and the right and responsibility are transferred to the individual. The mere existence of homeschooling is a reminder and reaffirmation of that right, even if public schooling is a better option on the whole.

Allows for individualized education by a caring, invested instructor.

Homeschoolers have the freedom to progress quickly in the subjects at which they excel, while spending more time on the subjects that are a challenge for them. They are not tied to the timetable of the classroom.

It seems that the points against home schooling that refer to sheltering and lack of socialization are based on a stereotype of what a home school situation is like (I'd like to hear the reasoning, otherwise). I've known many traditionally-schooled kids that could be considered shelterd or poorly socialized or lacking in experience with diversity of belief. On the flip side, haven't any of you made friends at the park, neighborhood, scouts, karate class, little league, church, etc.? I certainly made more friends from those sources than from school at any level.

Indeed, one of the attractions of home schooling is precisely that bullies and social cliques, which can interfere with providing and receiving education, are removed from the learning environment. These are not necessary to learning the three R's. And, unless they are never allowed to leave the house, there will be no shortage of encounters with these and other experiences for the home-schooled student.

Because the American public school system is the nicest prison system in the world.

Home schoolers are receiving athletic scholarships. Both the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) recognize the legitimacy of home school diplomas and transcripts, making them eligible for athletic scholarships in colleges throughout the country.

Having been home schooled myself, I thought the topic of this thread was "Home Schlong." Which is obviously, far better and more interesting. By the way, I've decided that "Home Schlong" shall be my new nickname.

Shelters students from real-world socialization. Reduces the contact that children have with people outside the immediate family.

The biggest argument I have against home schooling is that everyone seems to assume that anyone can teach, when this is absolutely not the case. Teaching is a gift, and deciding to home school your child (or children) implies that you believe that you can teach all subjects at every level better than anyone else that your child might have in a public or private school. I have a liberal arts degree, and am close to finishing a Ph.D., but I would never presume that I could provide my children with the knowledge in science, technology, and literature that they need to be happy, well-rounded, productive members of society. Instead, I see my role as parent is ensuring that my children remain academically challenged at home, that I am involved in their school activities, and that I provide a home environment that goes beyond and fills in the gaps that are present in public schools.

Beyond the requirement that a lesson plan be filed, there is no real requirements about the quality and kind of education a child can receive. Lesson plans can be found online.

Not only does home schooling limit the child's socialization, it limits the diversity of interactions with people of other beliefs. The child never has to deal with the day to day problems of school,such as bullies and social cliques. Their exposure is only to what is presented to them by the parents. AND where do these kids go to just get away from the family? Where is the down time from Mom,Dad, and siblings? I can go onand on but will end here.

Although most colleges are open to admitting homeschooled students, some still prefer those with a public or private-school education. If your child has his heart set on a certain school, you may need to adjust your plans to meet their admission requirements.
