Can you get more done by doing online (homeschooling) or at public school?

I'll take this one you can get more done at school than home why because you can get easily side tracked at home than at school. At school teachers are always watching and listening forcing you to work hard. But don't worry when you get home and do your homework you get to play even harder.

I beg to differ, because teachers nowadays are not watching every student the whole time the student is in the class. You can easily get sidetracked at public school too because many students are on their phones at school. Whereas when you are doing online school you do not have to worry about waiting on you teacher to finish giving instructions or passing out the assignment, you can go at your own pace and you don't have to worry about wasting time on switching classes or on things that are less important. I have been to both public and have done online schooling..

At public schools teachers are to enforce learning like its the law what ever public school you have went to obviously do not care about you education but Homeschooling and going to a public school is an opinion of the students and the choice of the students.

Well this actually depends on the person. If the person is lazy in school where they have teachers calling home and parent teacher conferences to notice them on how they are doing and DONT do work... then they obviously without a doubt wont get anything done at home. IF you are the opposite, where you do good in school, get all your work done, and have no problem with that, then you most likely will get more done in home schooling. School consists of doing work with the pace of the teacher, you cant go ahead and do more work if youre done with your current work. In home schooling, you finish a course (whether it takes you a couple hours or a week), and get to another one, once you finish your current courses your new courses will immediately be opened. This depends on how quick you are, if youre quick and motivated, you will get A LOT done fast. Seriously the work is ridiculously easy. I speak from experience, not mine but my brother's.

No. Public school is crucial to social development.

Reasons for voting decision: This debate would have benefited from more rigor from both sides. Pro squeaks out a victory, though, for her "self-paced" argument, and Con's incoherent closing. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
