Not knowing all the facts and without thinking into the future, many

parents blindly consider homeschooling over public education. Several parents

believe having their children stay at home with them and the family all day would

assemble a better environment for them. Homeschooling doesn't just lack in

socialization, but in education, resources, facilities, extra curricular activities, etc.

Parents and children must accept much more additional responsibility along with

tasks in their everyday lifestyle.

Public educators rarely ever make a mistake while teaching a lesson. They

are also sufficient and experienced in what they teach. Not only can home tutors

and parents easily make mistakes, but they aren't professionally trained to teach

such courses and subjects at a standard level. Jennifer Lynch, a former

homeschool student, said "My tutor taught me how to do math functions a

completely different way, 'til this day I struggle." Considering 47% of

homeschooling parents are either only high school graduates or did not graduate

from high school or have completed less than two years of college, they do not

have faultless education in any area of study, thus parents and tutors not able to

teach the student with efficiency or accuracy ("Objections to Homeschooling").

interests come about in the stated subjects, extra costs would come forth for

the parents to pay or the child may have to learn to live without fulfilling their

interests. A child may obsess over their favorite musical instrument but never

get to learn how to play it correctly.

The cost of homeschooling is a major con, parents pay over a thousand

dollars for their kids just so then can homeschool them and keep them away from

society. From which they don't even receive any positive attributions, no

socialization, no extra courses, no high school memories, no diversity of cultures,


Public education is undoubtedly a much better choice to educate kids, its

more efficient, educational, social, and not to mention a lot cheaper.
