Homeschooling is great for parents who want to teach their children a specific curriculum or provide biblical foundations for their children. Homeschooling gives parents the opportunities to work at their own pace and build a strong relationship with their child. Students who are homeschool also don’t have to undergo peer pressures or worry about not fitting in or being bullied. However, with every good thing there are also negatives about homeschooling. Students who are homeschools are not as sociable, they don’t get to participate in school sports, or attend school events like student who attend public school.
Some public schools around the country do still teach good values to their students and do believe in praying before school. There are a lot of religious organizations around the country encouraging parents to make a sacrifice for their children and teach them at home. Some... ... middle of paper ... ...are put in society. Schools were setup to educate people who are not educated and help students to their best ability in order to prepare them for the outside world (Lyman,Isabel). With most schools just passing kids through school instead of taking the time to actually teach them, they are not doing society a favor because these kids have no skills to bring to society to better it.
Does prayer affect what a student can and cannot do? Prayer seems like an innocent, honest action to do in school. Some children are even pushed towards prayer by most of their parents, depending on their religious beliefs. Yet, what we do not know is that there is a major controversy between religion and schools. Though there is religious freedom due to the 1st Amendment of the Constitution, the government should not allow prayer in school because children should have a choice whether they want religion to be part of their learning and because religion is diverse around the nation.
Students should not be homeschooled because it affects the child’s socials skills, having lower social skills, and parents as teachers. Over 2 million children are homeschooled today. Homeschooling is when parents teach their children curriculum at home instead of sending them out to a public or private school. Most parents today homeschool because of they are concerned for the environment of schools, but some parents don’t realizes that keeping your child at home could hinder them even more than putting the child in a private or public school. Children who are being homeschooled usually have less social skills then children who are in public school.
This causes many problems later in life. The “deschooling” movement began in the 1960’s due to concern that schools weren’t teaching the same religious values that are taught at home. People feared their children would become anti-religious and lose their values because they were spending time with immigrants. Children homeschooled today can be for a variety of reasons. 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.
This new grading scale is more to a help at raising scoring and funding than allowing students to learn the information in a way that will be reliable in the future. The no zero grading policy may allow students to pass, it may even encourage them to continue to stay in school, but it is not helping the children to be successful in society. Are colleges excepting this new grading scale? As most colleges except a new student for their grades and work ethics. With this policy schools are only motivating students to come to school for the knowledge that they will pass.
By teaching a neutral based education, students to not have to worry about being taught a religion that is not of the one they believe in. It allows for the students to go to school strictly for their education and return home where they can learn about their own religion from their parents. However, the downfall to this type of education is that it does not give students the full truth of life. This in turn
The absence of religion in public schools seems to be fine with the public since many parents do not want their children to make religious choices that differ from their family tradition (Passe and Willox). Does this controversy makes it difficult for teachers to teach the required material in schools since religion can be involved in historic events? Proponents of bringing religion back into the public school curriculum state that religion is needed in order for students to understand the Social Studies curriculum and current world events. Religion played a major role in the Crusades, the formation of Pakistan and India, and the Israeli-Palestinian dispute just to name a few. One reason for why religion needs to be involved in the teaching of the Crusades is because it focused solely on religion.
Parents who put their kids in co-education schools are not thinking about their children’s future and their education closely enough. Co-education is hurting children because they are not focusing on them. They only focus on their lesson plans, they do not focus on the different strategies that students need to learn. Single-sex schools have more opportunities than Co-ed schools. Co-ed schools do not give their students the tools they need to be an advanced student.
Ernie Rambo a writer for Center For Teaching Quality explains in his article Why Electives Matter that elective classes reveal the skill sets of some students that other classes may not have been able to bring out. This helps students be able to see their strengths and talents (Rambo 1). Homeschooling parents focus on the curriculum for regular classes so much that they don’t include elective classes, which doesn’t allow the child of developing other talents. These are things that homeschooling parents need to take into consideration for their child before considering the idea of
