  • Personal reasons having to do mostly with bullies, appearance (not weight nor clothes), and my need to be a wallflower

  • I can write a list of reasons as to why homeschool is better than public school.

  • There is alot of judgment in the public school system today, and because of this alot of students have very low self esteem of themselves. Also, in homeschooling you can move at your kids pace, and not the system. You also have a more flexible system to do things with your child.

  • Depends on the person, but I'd say I'd favor homeschooling mostly.

  • Hello everyone I'm 12 years old 7th grader (about to be 13 next month) and I chose homeschool over public school because public school sucks. I've been trying to get myself homeschooled since I finished 6th grade but my mom said no because it costs a lot of money (so what there's also free homeschool programs). So here are 5 good reasons why public school sucks. 1.You get bullied a lot more in public school than in homeschool (btw I'm currently being bullied just for liking the hottest 7th grader in school). 2.You get healthier food when homeschooled than in public school (if you live in the U.S but if you live outside the U.S than don't worry about this) and junk food can cause a child to be really unhealthy and not succeed in life. 3.You're less stressed in homeschool compared to public school where you're more stressed and a lot of stress can lead to a shortened life span and diseases in the brain. 4.You can learn at your own pace in homeschool when in public school you can't and in life you'll run into complicated problems that'll sometimes require really complicated math or reading skills. 5.If you're homeschooled than you get to sleep in that is actually good for you because your brain needs a lot of energy. But if you're in public school (like me) than you have to wake up really early for school and that could be really bad for your brain (even if you sleep early) because it can increase the risk of diabetes and heart disease and your brain won't function properly. So yeah these are the top 5 reasons why homeschool is better than public school.

  • I've seen a few kids who never learned the way of the world, due to not going to public school. Though I suppose their parents are also to blame.

  • In Homeschool you learn knowledge. In Public school you learn knowledge, fighting bullies, lying, work in the last min, social skills and teamwork. These are great beneficial skills for living in the adult world. Most homeschooled people tends to have a difficult time to live in the real world, due to haven't experience that kind of pain. Look at Taylor Swift's song 21. She thinks 21 year old girls gossip about boys, which in reality 21 year olds work part time, write essay for university and getting loans. How delusion it is. Seriously, go to public school. Bullying is bad, but suck it up and be an adult.

  • Definitely public school, or any school where you have to deal with people your age and grow up with them. You cannot come out as an alien to the society and pretend to have a happy life. Deal with your problems. When it comes to bullying I think it is the duty of the parents and the institutions to deal with it, not the children. If the right precautions are taken, then public school is the right choice.

  • Public school. I was homeschooled as a teenager in high school. I felt like an out cast because I had so many friends in public school and I just became the out cast.

I was never homeschooled and I wasn't convinced that it was in the best interests of my brood. Personally, I attended private & public schools. Of the two, I prefer a private education.

Homeschooling is nice and there is too much criticism of it!! Those who say homeschoolers are unsocial are wrong: many take extra classes, participate in bees, and best of all, in sports :) Anyways they also learn to love (unlike public school goers) and lots are above their grade level in many aspects, along with their regular routine in schooling. 0=

Check out these sources. Check out their sources. There is considerable scientific evidence that dispels a lot of homeschool stigmas. Most sources I've found show that students with some homeschooling in their background demonstrate academic and social proficiencies equal to or greater than those of their exclusively public-schooled counterparts. I found all of these sources by googling homeschool versus public school statistics.
