Is home schooling or PLublic/private school better?
Debate Rounds (3)
I will be arguing that Homeschooling is better than Public Schooling.
Therefore, I will provide some definitions to clarify this round for us today!
Public School: " a school that is maintained at public expense for the education of the children of a community or district and that constitutes a part of a system of free public education commonly including primary and secondary schools."
Home Schooled: "to teach (one's children) at home instead of sending them to school."
Better: "Comparative of good or well."
Home-Schooling has been increased by 2.04 million people since 1999. This number is yet a huge one and shows that parents find this an effective matter. Along with homeschooling, there have been many studies showing, better academics, higher graduation rate, and much more! So here are some key factors to why homeschooling is much of a better choice from sending your child to Public School.'
1. Safety -
Every parent wishes for their child's safety and protection from our dangerous world. The parents can moderate their child and keep them save. While in public school children can develop a nasty attitude, foul mouth, porn, drugs, smoking, etc. What do you expect from a bunch of middle schoolers/high schoolers without their parents watching them? Teenagers will usually be bad influences on each other and this is where bullies will arise. Bullying as led to a lot of depression and youth committing suicide. Is this what we want from our children? Or do we prefer to give them a safe environment where you can teach them about the world from a better perspective?
2. Education Quality -
The parent gets to set the standard for their child and are able to focus on their child's education. While teachers in the public school system are forced to focus on a huge class-room of students. Which this leads to other students totally being invisible to the teacher where all you do is turn in your work and get your grade. While at home, the parent doesn't just want high grades, she/he wants to see you master the skill and delve deeper into the curriculum.
Most people against homeschooling make the case "lack of a social life." Which this is actually incorrect. Homeschoolers are always offered tutors and tutorials to take. They can always meet up with homeschoolers just a like or pick up the phone and call one another. They are in a social life with others who home-school and can be in an environment just alike them.
Family Unity -
Being homeschooled, you learn to get along with siblings and bond with your family more. A distinct thing apart from public schoolers is that home schoolers have a perfect opportunity to unite with their family and get a long and grow a strong and healthy relationship with each other. The parents have better view of their children and how they are raised and raise them properly.
Travel and Convenience -
Being home schooled is also super convenient! How so? I have a lot of public schooled friends who fear of becoming sick because then they have to skip school and are left behind and get failing grades for not attending. This is a major issue in our school systems. If you are sick you can just school at home. Traveling out of town? Do your school on the trip! Its so much easier for parents to keep up with their children and make sure they don't lose a proper education.
