Nowadays, manny parents choose homeschooling for their children beside public school, because they feel that most of learning atmosphere at public school does not prioritize the student need. The age when a childrens may stop going to school varies from sixteen to eighteen (Aasen, 2010). But actually, homeschool it is not a better choice for the children because, while those who oppose that homeschooling
Both homeschool parents and public-school parents contribute to the success of the school so why should they not be able to participate? In the book Homeschooling, Immell states, "It seems disingenuous to suggest that permitting these students to take part in school-based extracurricular activities would be unjust or a burden on public school budgets since their parents are paying property taxes. It's clear that parents who homeschool their children do not make this decision lightly. Some do so because they want their child's education to be integrated with their faith and do not have access to a private school that reflects their religious beliefs. Others choose to homeschool in an effort to offer more challenging coursework to children who have advanced beyond the available curricula offered locally.
Public school, again, especially high school, really helps a child form bonds that could not be formed in a homeschooling environment, such as teacher and student bonds. Being away from others their own age excludes students from learning this skill, which could definitely lead to problems forming relationships in the future, whether that being professional relationships or personal relationships. “I’m not saying parents can’t do that, but it’s not the same. Teachers have a big influence.” (Cavazos). Parents can be influential for their children, but it would be very biased because they control what the child is learning.
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. Some people argue that homeschooling is the way to go, because parents have more choices. Some families who homeschool believe that homeschooling is better than school, because regular school is government mandated, so the government determines what is necessary for children to be learning. These families get to choose what they think is critical for their child to learn and they think that all families have the right to define what their child is learning and that they should have complete control. A few families choose to homeschool because they want to decide what kind of education their child is getting and base it around their religious beliefs, because they think that schools have become too separated from religion.
Homeschooled children are able to attend many extracirricular activities that public schooled children may not due to school hours and inflexiblity in that schedule. In contrast to the positive aspects, homeschooled children may not have the opportunties to form meaningful bonds with others and may suffer socially compared to those who attend public schools (middleschool.net). There are claims that homeschooled children are sheltered by not having the same exposure to the world as public schooled children. Those who are against homeschooling believe that children need to be exposed to public schools for vital life skills. These vital life skills include but are not limited to problem solving skills when it comes to dealing with others, public speaking abilities, and control over their own... ... middle of paper ... ... help as well as extra attention to the child’s weakest subjects.
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.
Just because you don’t understand the subject of a test doesn’t mean you can’t get anywhere in life. Exams are a bad way of testing your knowledge at any age. “Our compulsory school-attendance laws once served a humane and useful purpose. They protected the children’s right to some schooling, … Today the laws help nobody”(3) Holt explains that keeping kids in school who don’t want to be there costs “an enormous amount of time and trouble”(3). Even if the teacher was trying to teach the child something useful, him not wanting to be there is a waste of time for them both.
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.
In a public school setting, teachers do not have the flexibility time to do this with each and every child. However, many people think that this type of education a child will not receive a well-rounded learning experience. A one-on-one education really is a child with special attention they need to grow as a person. This is just one benefit of homeschooling your child. Homeschooled children are self-motivated because they have a desire to know about a subject instead of finding something just to pass a test.
Argument essay I have chosen to write this essay about homeschooling. Homeschooling is one option for schooling children, along with public and private schools. Many people do not believe in homeschooling because they do not trust that parents are teaching their children correctly. They argue that parents can’t teach their children without proper training and that without it. They also worry that students will not learn to socialize or function in society and that homeschooling is just a way to hide children from the real world.
