O_C

Pro

Should people be allowed to home school their children?
uma_s

Con

Children should not be home schooled because parents can't teach their children as well as a trained teacher.
Debate Round No. 1
O_C

Pro

People should have the right to decide what their children learn, as long as they follow general guidelines.
uma_s

Con

Parents are not trained in all the subjects and may not know how to teach their children to the standard. Also there are tests the child must take so their children must know all the material
Debate Round No. 2
O_C

Pro

There are many reasons why a student would be home schooled. Maybe there are religious reasons, maybe the child has special needs, or maybe they're just not suited to regular school life. Whatever the reason, their families have the right to act in their best interests.

Con

These are valid reasons, however if people cannot participate in a school environment they should consider hiring a private tutor that can accommodate their needs and knows how to teach academics. Another reason children should not be home schooled is that they wont be in contact with other children and will not develop good social skills
Debate Round No. 3
O_C

Pro

While it is true that parents could hire a tutor or private teacher, it still might not solve the problem. Many children are home schooled because their parents object to the way
