Reasons Why People Homeschool In order to determine whether Homeschooling is indeed promising, one must first understand the reasons why people choose to Homeschool. According to Reich, Homeschooling is appealing to many families because of the capability to almost entirely customize education for their children. Many families want to homeschool because they do not feel that their children’s spiritual and moral needs are met in public schools. Moreover, some families choose to Homeschool in order to screen their child’s curriculum to remove secularist views found in modern day public school curriculum (2002). Others have children with special needs or learning disabilities, so they choose to homeschool (Maaja, 1997).
Making the decision between public school, private school, or homeschooling can be a long and overwhelming process, but to a parent finding a perfect school for their child it is worth all of the stress that comes along with the decision. No matter what a parent decides in the end, their child will be educated. A child that went to public school could end up with similar knowledge to the child down the road who was homeschooled, but what truly matters is what environment the child will be most comfortable in to develop socially and
Well, a parenting class would be perfect for it. Another reason that I think teenagers should have to take this class, is because they need advice for the future. For example, say a teenager thought that she was in love, and wanted to start a life with her loved o... ... middle of paper ... ...nt to be a nanny after high school, and in the house were children. There is a chance that you would want to develop a bond with the kids, Education is key to any job, but there are also certain situations that you need to know how to communicate with children. If something severe were to happen, and the only way to find out was through the child, you would need to know how to handle him or her to get her to spill the beans.
In comparison to homeschooling, a parent can eliminate all of the busywork so they can focus more time on important subjects that their child would need in the future. One of the best things about one-on-one learning is it a child does not understand something the parents can spend time going over until the child fully understands what they are trying to learn. This kind of learning is called learning at your own pace. For example, in a homeschooling environment, if a child does not do well on the tests, a parent can go over the material and explain the questions until the child understand why they got wrong. In a public school setting, teachers do not have the flexibility time to do this with each and every child.
the environment for the child as he or she is being homeschooled is just as important as the parents choice of "Homeschooling". Most parents, specially the mothers, fear that their child will or can get out of control specially since they are the ones raising them and know how their child reacts to new situations with someone else in charge. However, pre-school can amaze a parent and can make a difference at an early age for a child. The child learns new things everyday, whether they remember what they learned for the day or not, they learn for future references and use what they have learned without realizing it. They also learn how to deal with issues that cause problems from the choices they choose.
Homeschooling is an education that gives parents choices and the right to teach their child however they want, but are the parents’ wants what the children need. Parents want to give their children moral instruction or want to teach them based on their religious beliefs and parents do have the right to do that because it is their child, but there are specific things that are essential for a child to learn or to experience. There are religious schools that give children an education on their faith and academically. Homeschooling doesn’t work because states have varying or no regulations on curriculum, some parents just aren’t equipped to teach their children, and homeschooled kids do not experience socialization. Parents don’t have to show how their child is performing academically, some parents only have a high school diploma or less, and homeschooled children are missing an important element of life because they aren’t learning or participating in class discussions or activities in a classroom setting.
Home schoolers tend to have an exaggerated sense of the problems in contemporary education. Home Schooling Home schooling is a form of education in which children learn at home rather than in a conventional classroom, with their parents as their primary teachers. By exercising the choice to home school, home schooling parents are selecting the type of education their children receive. This choice, they believe, is protecting their children from becoming one of the statistics of academic or moral failure sometimes portrayed in the popular media. “Home schooling families want the right to choose to teach their children themselves, as it is the home schooling family’s belief that they can provide a better academic and moral foundation for their children than other school settings” (Mason, 2009).
If parents want to protect their children from diverse things in the world, in that case they should be capable to. In addition, I concur with that how home schooling parents are so dedicated to their children having an excellent education. I agree with the author stated that home schooling seems to be “Wonderful if people think about education as a consumption tool”. My position of the commentary is that I concur with what the author declared in the entire article. I believe parents that home school their children are significantly worried about how their children obtain their education, and that they would do anything for there child to have an excellent education.
Aspects of Home Schooling Do parents always know what is best for their child? When a parent says that they want to home school their child are they making the right decision? After all, parents are the ones that teach their children how to walk and talk. After all, they are the ones that are most interested in making sure that their child receives the best education, why shouldn’t they be the ones to teach their children? Being home schooled can have both a positive and negative effect on a child.
In addition to the ones listed above, some people believe they would provide a better education for their children than a conventional school would, they want to build strong family bonds, or they are afraid of sending their child to school. I believe these are exact reasons that children do need to be sent to conventional schools instead of remaining at home. A dear friend of mine was homeschooled. Her parents, however realized that it was inhibiting her social skills and her growth as a person. I fear that other parents won’t see this.
