However, the most common question that bothers many parents is the doubt of which one to choose. Homeschooling can cause the children to stay behind of their age group people; however, now days, many of the children care less about developing their education and concentrate more on their life and hobbies. In addition, homeschooling would waste time and money from the parents. Laura Saba, a former public school teacher who homeschooled her children, and Julie Gattis, a registered nurse and occasional lecturer who has seven years of homeschooling experience, in their book The McGraw- Hill Homeschooling Companion, declare public schools are free of charge for children and “Children can spend their day getting educated while parents are out earning a living” (1). Even though many parents prefer to homeschool their children, homeschooling would be harmful for both parents and children because children would have social and educational problems, which are the elements of “Dual-trust Education,” and parents would have the shortage of time and money.
Homeschooling is becoming a huge trend across America. It does have its downsides to it, just like any other education. Many parents have to worry about the right way of letting their child have socialization. Without proper socialization, a child can lack proper social skills. Many parents fear the temptations public school can provide, so they homeschool their children to bring them up with holy and moral attitudes.
Moreover, the education at home is not much better as at school and also the education will not be diversify. Again, home schooling will not be good for all children, and not all parents can be good teachers as the teachers at schools. They need a lot of time to learn how they can teach. My opinion, I think home schooling is not a great way to teach children because children need to mingle with other peers who are in the same age. Children who study at their home will not get a good opportunity to enter at great universities.
Some of the hardship they must go through in order to get education, are the dwindling amount of resources that prohibits a student of reaching the required amount of academic studies. Having little as to no time to focus on school, caused by work or labor that must be done outside of school in order to live is a headache. The school, neighborhood, and even their lives at home are affecting the child’s ability of success in advancing with learning as well as social ability in school. It is devastating to know that they can not proceed into the future because of the fact that they are experiencing with hardships in contrast to wealthy families. Poverty affects student education in various ways adding an extra amount of stress, stress that some will never be able to fathom; that is something that no one wants to preserve in their mind.
There are many people that would say that education is the most important thing and others would not agree with that statement and there are lots of reasons for that. That is because students learn and approach education differently than others. Some of the reasons are that many of the parents don't know how to help their children, students are not engaged in the work and we let the media think for us. A lot of students no matter if they are in middle school, high school or even college they can't be successful students because they do not have parents that can sit down with them and help them on homework. Richard says "I was oddly annoyed when I was unable to get parental help with a homework assignment.
According to Haenicke, some students have low self-esteem because they rely less and less on their own abilities as they have learned to be dependent on their parents. The extreme dependence denies them the opportunity to learn by experience, which is the best teacher. All of these factors play a major role in the development of some mental problems by these students. It is therefore the highest time that college students should be left to lead their own lives and experience life in totality. Children are unable to make decisions pertaining their future because their parents are hovering a lot and interfering in their lives.
The literature that is provided to teach these children is not efficient and effective. Many low-income families have no choice in the matter because they cannot afford the fees for attendance to private schools. Some families have the opportunity of obtaining a voucher that helps pay for the tuition. Many see this voucher as a way of abandoning public school instead of trying to fix it. Whatever the advantages of education for young people, many are not attending school on a regular basis.
Home schooling should not be the first option to teach your children because it contributes to the lack of interaction, which leads to communication issues that are needed for children. Many opinions are often formed against the thought of a child being home schooled versus a public or private school. This subject has been argued many times in the past and even today. There are many different outlooks on this situation. Several believe that with home schooling, children are learning more than those that attend a school.
To make matters worse, the failing school infrastructure has caused students to be pushed into overcrowded classrooms with unqualified teachers. The Thai government is the root of these problems because they are not supplying their students with the necessities they need. The Thai government must enable students to finish their education by providing more scholarships for those in need of it, reforming certain educational policies, and by allocating more funding to each school. The government should provide more scholarships for the impoverished because the majority of the country’s destitute students are unable to matriculate through the public system and are unable to afford tuition for any universities. Thailand’s constitution guarantees 12 free years of education, with a minimum mandatory attendance of nine years.
Another reason is concern over the quality of schooling available. Schools frequently have large classes. They are often under-funded, and staffed by teachers without sufficient knowledge of their subjects. Subjects such as the family’s religion or language may not even be available in the school. Other parents may disagree with the aims of the school curriculum, preferring for academic, social or cultural reasons to keep their children separate.
