Homeschool is better than public school.
Debate Rounds (3)
You can repeat your topics as much as you want, until you will perfectly understand them. You do not have to ask somebody to repeat what was said, because you easily can repeat everything by yourself.
There is nobody who can distract you. It will be easier to understand courses and you will memorize them better.
There are no students who sells drugs, if you are homeschooling. You do not feel pressured or abused by other students. Children cannot negatively influence you, if you are studying at home.
Sometimes students fight each other in public schools, however at home you are safe.
Of course you can interact, socialize with other kids at a public school more easily than at home, but you also can invite some of your good friends and study with them together sometimes, or if it even improves your studying, then you could invite your good(do not do drugs, study good, positive) friends all the time.
What do you mean by special experience? Do you mean that the things that leave an impression on your life happen outside of school? You mean the place where you spend 8 hours a day, 5 days a week for at least 12 years? Where you are molded into the person you are going to be? Or do you mean the place where you find life long friendships and first loves? My fondest memories, and some of my most horrifying are from school. Whether good or bad, I had those EXPERIENCES and it has made me into a more well rounded and knowledgeable person for having them.
Children who are home schooled do have less of a chance to be influenced by drugs and bullying because they are completely shielded from that. It also means that the baby bird is completely cut off from knowing how to deal with these things. In your first argument you said that parents could allow certain types of friends into their baby bird's life. How is a parent to know exactly what type of person these supposed friends will turn out to be? Will the parents befriend them and hang out with them first? Maybe give them a friendship test to vet them? How would a parent know if this friend will not get him/her into trouble anyway? Parents, even if they want to, can not monitor every action a child makes. An overprotective parent can also lead to a kid who wants nothing more than to rebel and do the exact opposite from what they are told. It leads to that child feeling trapped and alone, only wanting to break free from their parents and by extension their rules.
I would state the argument that being home schooled can in fact leave the student at the time of higher education weaker emotionally and socially when dealing with college kids. A place where there are a lot of drugs and partying. It leaves them basically inexperienced to deal with people in their peer group. Where are the parents then? Do they go to college with the kid and make sure they do everything right? Vet their college friends and check their diet? Pop in every day to make sure they aren't drinking or using drugs?
All that being said, a lot of this has to do with what type of parents you have and what type of person you are. You can definitely lead a great life being home schooled OR being publicly schooled. Each has its merits. Tom Edison, Theo Roosevelt, Tim Tebow were born with genius or athleticism. Their parents, schooling along with about a million other things made them who they are. To say that they wouldn't have excelled if they weren't home schooled is silly. To say that they would have been happier or sadder not being home schooled is impossible, they haven't experienced it. A person can have a wonderful life either way. It depends on the parent, the child and everything in between.
http://www.home-school.com..., homeschool dominates the public school, combo of all subtests shows that homeschooled kid's average is 89%, when public's one is 50%
Secondly, the topic is not about jobs - which one is better, which one is worse. Do not go off the topic. Everyone knows that directors ranked higher than their assistants or workers, no one is talking that some job is better than the other.
Thirdly, not just you, but millions of people get their memorable experiences at public school, which means, that it is not special experience. Special experience is about getting greatly self-improved, by doing something outside of either public school or homeschool. It does not depend on type of school. I am writing this, because you started writing about experience. It is always different for everyone, however special means unordinary, that you do not get from schools.
Fourthly, if you are homeschooled, you are not separated from the world, you can do sports at sport clubs, you can go to a library, it is quite there, also you can meet lots of new people at that place. Children have lots of friends who come over to each others' houses. Usually, these friends are kids of parent's friends, this is how parents know about their children's friends.
Fifthly, people are not born as geniuses or athletes, they become geniuses and athletes. The way how world affects people, makes them change, start thinking unusually. When, a child goes to public school, he usually thinks as everyone does, but when he is homeschooled, he does not think of how to become a popular student, he thinks of something different.
Finally, homeschooled kids are not emotionally weak, because their parents know that children can be less sociable and not experience things that students at public school do. This is why they watch educating movies with their kids, try to make their children to do outside activities, maybe do debates, playing musical instruments, there are lots of interesting things to do, which will improve kids in all ways. These activities and not going to a public school, makes homeschooled guys different, they think in a different way comparing to students from public schools. Because, they do not experience public school stuff, they experience something totally different. It makes that think differently compare to teenagers from public schools.
