Due to this fact, public education has been the go to education source for years. Though, this trend is slowly changing with many parents deciding to home school their children instead. Many factors are the cause for this issue, but the common arguments arise from a certain few. For students, public school provides many opportunities ranging from social connections, school sports, and the exposure to teachers who are experts in their fields. But homeschooling is often superior because it offers additional time for students to participate in various extracurricular activities and community service, allows for more individual attention, personal character development, and it offers less exposure to discrimination that is received in the public school environment.
One advantage is that stay at home moms are able to be involved more than working moms, which helps their child in several educational areas. In a study done by the Southwest Educational Development Laboratory, students with involved parents are more likely to earn higher grades, pass classes, attend school regularly, have better social skills, and go on to postsecondary education. Another benefit is that stay at home moms have more time to support their children in extracurricular activities. Working moms may not always be able to take time off, and therefore can’t watch and support their kids in sports, clubs, and concerts like stay at home moms can. Thirdly, students with a stay at home mother may be more likely to have better behavior in school.

The opportunities for education now are astounding, but a method that often gets ignored is one of the simplest of all. Parents should consider homeschooling as an option for education because it provides students with a more intimate learning experience and a closer relationship with their family.

Statistics have shown that home-schooled children achieve high standards of academic success and excel socially, according to research from the Home-school Legal Defense Association (HSLDA). As seen through many cases, home-schoolers are better adjusted in society and are more likely to be engaged in their communities. They may not be in a “school room” situation, where they are among other children of the same age for the entire length of a school day, but they are comfortable working and socializing with people of all ages. Home-schoolers are often heavily involved with scouts, church groups, music lessons, sports teams, and volunteer work.
