Homeschooling becomes more and more popular nowadays. But I think that it has more disadvantages than advantages. I want to mention 3 main disadvantages from homeschooling.
The first is limited socialization.
Rather than interacting with other children their age, most of their time is spent with their parents or an adult teacher. Home-schooled children might become socially awkward because they've been cut off from their peers and the daily social interactions that regular school provides. As a result, they might not develop communication skills and won't know how to interact in group settings. This can be very harmful for child. The further effect can be that the child would have troubles in future while building relationships with other adults.

I agree with you that children lose some communication with other people. However, it can be helpful for their own development. When children study only with teacher without other children, they more attentively listen the teacher and try be more better. Children can find friends not only at school, they can go on some sports group, art group and so on and communicate with other children. A lot of children do not communicate at school and I think it is not problem for them.

The second disadvantage is the lack of motivation.
Some children need to be challenged to excel in their studies. In this sense, they thrive when they are involved in some competition. Children who are homeschooled would not have this motivation because most of them are educated separately. Such children have no stimulus to make their best. They know that anyway they will continue to study, children do not have anything to achieve.

but why who have homeschooling have higher knowledge than at school, I think that children who study at home want to show that he or she very clever. By the way, they have motivation because nevertheless teacher always will say to parents about children rather than teacher at school.

The last disadvantage is a big cost of homeschooling. In comparison to public schools, where education is free, homeschooling can be costly. Purchasing the newest curriculum and teaching tools can be very expensive. Parents may choose to use a paid homeschooling program, such programs may have added benefits, but may increase the cost of the child"s education. There are also other costs to keep in mind, like project materials, stationery, books, computer software, and field trips. Parents who choose to home school their children should be prepared to spend more money than parents who send their children to public schools.

I disagree with you because today 76 percent of children who have homeschooling do not pay money. The government pay money for homeschooling because exists a lot of different reasons. For example: unable children cannot go to school and the government provides free homeschooling education. What about school material? Today, exists the internet source which can provide free materials for children. In my opinion, in order to take a good education will be better if all children will have homeschooling.
