Topic:

Some parents prefer to homeschool their children by virtue of modern technology and private tutors instead of sending them to public schools.

State your opinions about homeschooling, juxtaposed with school education, and furnish your claims with reasoning.


The Essayist: Arash

When it comes to education of your child you want to make sure that they have the best education possible. There are 3 choices that you, as a parent, can make for education. Those are public school, private school, and homeschool. It is very difficult to compare homeschool and public schools because there is such a wide variation in both types of education, however, in my opinion, homeschool is the best choice to choose.
There are many merits for homeschool to argue but I would like to mention some of them. Safety is one of the most important things that families prefer to keep their children at home and employ a private tutor for them. They are worried about drugs, bullying and negative attitudes as part of an unsafe environment. Flexible scheduling is another advantage of homeschools that parents can manage their children time in order to maximize their feedback.
Furthermore, many families want to give their students a richer educational experience than they themselves had. Some gravitate toward the rigor of older methods like the classical model. In public school vs. homeschool, teachers are forced to juggle the educational needs of a large group of students with a wide range of abilities. Parents who prefer homeschool often want to set higher standards for their children, choose quality curriculum or have the flexibility to work at a faster pace in the subjects in which their students excel.
To conclude, education is one of the most important parts of anybody’s life and parents ought to investigate the options that exist based on their children character and choose the best way for their future.
