It depends on the personality of the child, their level of intellect, and their strength of character.

To give you an example, I'm 19 years old, good at English, arty stuff, good communicator and thinker. I'm also a competitive person. Apart from the fact that I know, from personal experience, that kids are incredibly cruel to "different" ones, and would ridicule the fact that I was home schooled, my competitive, communicative nature would have helped me cope with going to public school.

My 17 year old brother, on the other hand, is shy, had a tremendous problem with English (still has trouble with some words today). This difficulty would not have been helped by the public school system, he would have got worse at English, lost his already low-self esteem and suffered.

My 15 year old brother is very smart and scheming. He wouldn't have suffered academically, but he would have got very frustrated because he has a low tolerance for subjects he considers "irrelevant". He probably would have got into trouble trying to con people out of their stationery or lunches or whatever!

My 13 year old brother is, from the point of a nasty school kid, a major geek, nerd, whatever they call "weirdos" today. He wouldn't have been able to make the transition from the family environment of love and tolerance to the public school teasing environment. He plays the fool, but he's really quite sensitive. He would have suffered emotionally.

My little 10 year old sister is nothing but sweet, and she would have been spoiled. She's a toughie, and would have put on a tough mask, but I know that she'd be a sad little person underneath it all.

My youngest brother, 7, is mentally retarded, so he can't go to school yet anyway.

When you bring up kids in one environment and then suddenly everything's different, it's a big shock--like a divorce. Sure, they "cope" in their own peculiar way, but they're altered. I think it's important to avoid emotional disruptions to children, especially in the delicate teenage years when they're going through puberty and everything.

Hope that helps answer your question.

Yes, absolutely - i think that's possible.

I've got friends who have been home schooled for many years and now they are in high school (or secondary school, whatever you call it).

I think above answer is correct, so I haven't deleted it! You have to seriously consider the personality of the child, as some people simply will not adjust. Being home schooled is so different to being schooled. It doesn't only affect your education, but also your social skills, personality and interact (your not forced to socialize with people).

To make it easier i think you would have to consider the transition and take it nice and slow; whether they are young, old or have a disability.

To start; maybe go to the open day, or chat with the teachers at the school.. enroll in clubs, societies, groups or gym.. this will all help with the transition of heading back to school.

Obviously you are a product of affirmative action public schooling.

It isn't, truly. It all depends on the child to be taught and the teacher(s) at hand as to which is better suited for them (the child).

This change would not, in itself, relieve the obligor of her/his support obligations.

K12 is a newer website that allows a child to do online public schooling. Since it is online the school is done from home, but since it is still through the public school system, it is not really homeschooling because the parent is not the only teacher, this means that K12 will not be completed much faster than if a child were attend an actual school.

It is not actually the schooling process that is necessary for the child; it is the learning process and the child acquiring needed skills. The schooling process as we know it is simply the avenue that was chosen to teach children those skills. The schooling process does become necessary in order to enter certain fields and professions.

Statisticly home schooled children do better on standarized tests then public school children. However on an individual bases, an indivdual student's success depends on the quality of the education they personaly get. There is no such reliable data to prove that home schooling children achieve better scores than those who take public schooling. At the same time if the parent are able to teach all subjects and if they have enough spare time then they can stimulte their child to do better.

It depends on the environment, how the child will be educated, and by whom. Sometimes homeschooling is best, while other times going to public school would be better for the child or children. It's whichever gets them the absolute best education they can receive.

Yes, home school saves time, energy, and money. Keep in mind however that home schooling a child will take disipline on the part of you and your child.

No. Not if the father objects. Parents have equal parental rights in decisions that concern their children. Since public schooling is the usual and accepted form of education in the United States home schooling is a digression from the norm. If the father objects the children should be educated through the public school system. Home schooling can be a great way to educate your children if the parent can bring the world and all its ideas to the child through their own efforts. However, it can also be narrow and overly dependent upon religious teachings in many cases especially in the teaching of science.

It is a parent's responsibility to ensure that a child is educated. All available options are acceptable, including home schooling.

Home schooling information can be found in numerous places such as the National Home Schooling Association's website. This will be a great resource if you're looking to homeschool a child.

If I am understanding your question correctly you are asking about whom to contact when or your intentions of home schooling. You must let the local school system in your area know that you will be home schooling you children at home. I would strongly urge you to have your home school curriculum in hand, a daily schedule (and a yearly schedule if possible accounting for 180 days of school) , and a record keeping system as proof that you are indeed capable of teaching your child at home. Do not go into the school office as a know it all or with a grudge to settle; but have a humble and firm attitude with confidence that you are able to teach your child. If you are not confident most schools will question your ability as a Parent to teach your child.

The school has placed your child in what they think is the best placement. If your child has failed a high stakes test it might be the place the school has the help to prepare your child for this test. If you have concerns with the placement please contact the school's counselor and principal and pursue your concerns. ----------------------------------------- While the above information could easily be the best way to address your child's lack of advancement, you can most definitely remove your child from any school program, or from the school entirely, if you choose (see that you will most likely have to remove your child from school in order to accomplish their removal from Basic Skills). Due to the decay of our public school system, there is a huge home-schooling movement afoot, and home-schooled children excel over publicly indoctrinated ones in virtually every metric. A bit of research has revealed another possible answer: public school online, 'free' tuition--which likely means 'free to you,' but they will most likely want the funds that can be transferred for opting out of a local public system. This information has not been verified, and it should be recognized that an online public education cannot duplicate the complete public school education curriculum, for better or worse. An online search of 'free online public education,' linked below, will get you started.

Homeschooling is when the parent helps their own child complete their schooling at home.

Yes. It's the best thing to do actually. It puts an increase to child bullying, drama, excessive homework, bad influences and rude teachers that are all provided when you place your child in a regular school or a public school. Private schools or home-schooling is the best way to go.

No. Public assistance is paid from public funds. Child support is paid by individual obligors.

Children are home-schooled for various reasons.Some are home-schooled because:Their parents have stricter religious beliefs that public schooling wouldn't offer to teach the child(ren) at hand.The schooling in the child(ren)'s area is below par and/or a dangerous environment.They have medical needs and treatment isn't being met properly in public schools.The child or children are having trouble dealing with their classmates (i.e., bullying), or trouble concentrating because of classmates (i.e., schoolyard drama).The child(ren) excel(s) academically at home as opposed to being in public school, so the parents nurture that in the child(ren). (Possibly because the parents know what the child(ren)'s strong and weak points are, and are possibly better fit to teach them, in that sense.)A combination of the reasons listed, and so on.
