2 Homeschool vs. Public School Homeschool is as good, if not better, than public school for some people. Homeschool is not real school, but it is! Public school is real school, but it isn’t! This is a case of homeschool versus public school.

3 Homeschool vs. Public School To some people, homeschooling is the only way for their children. To others, homeschooling is not considered real school and they will not even consider homeschooling their children. I want to show you some reasons behind this thinking. “Homeschool is better than public school!” This is being said more and more because the child is able to learn at their own pace. Also, the child has the one-on-one attention that they may need from the teacher, because the teacher is the child’s parent. There are so many cases of children bringing guns and knives to public school and that is one of the reasons that parents start homeschooling their child. If the child is learning at home, then the parents will know that the child is safe. They will know that the child will have a much better chance of not being killed by another child during the day. Another reason for homeschooling is that the child will not have the same level of peer pressure that they would in public school, therefore allowing the child to explore his or her own interest. Below is a picture of a child that is homeschooling. He is only one of about three children in this picture.

4 Homeschool vs. Public School (homeschooling.about.com) You can see how much easier he is able to study when he does not have a lot of other kids around to break his concentration. Also, he will be able to receive the one-on-one attention that he may need on his studies. Tests have been performed on homeschoolers and show that a child that is homeschooled actually scores higher on their tests than those that are in public school. This is because the child that is homeschooled does not have a lot of distractions and because of the one-on-one attention between the child and the teacher. The children in the picture below are in a public school.

5 Homeschool vs. Public School (livingstonisd.com) As you can see, there are many children in one area and most of these children are in one classroom. It is harder for these children to get the one-on-one attention that they may need from their teacher. There are pros and cons of homeschool and of public school. Some pros of public schooling are that the child can learn wit in a group setting and there are extra-curricular activities available. There are more curriculum opportunities and diverse social education. (educationbug.org)
