Well, arguing isn't going to get you anywhere - you have to prove you are mature enough and dependable enough to do your schoolwork, regardless of being at home OR in school. Homeschooling isn't, nor should it be, an easy way to cop out of things - always remember that. It may take awhile to prove that to your dad but, be patient. If you can show him some maturity and that you will be diligent in your school work (and that you are being sincere about wanting to be homeschooled, and not wanting to use it simply to get away from a teacher that "bugs you", or not have to do things that are expected), then he might relax a little. You have to show him first, though. Tough to do sometimes, but...just be patient and show him you can be responsible. It may make a difference - because arguing about it sure isn't getting anything changed, right? :) In the interim, ask for help in school - I used to work in a school, they'll give it to you - you just have to ask. ===ANOTHER ANSWER=== I AGREE WITH the first answer. Also, Maybe you should try and figure out why your dad is not in favor of you being homeschooled. It might be that he doesn't feel qualified to teach you at home; or maybe he feels that he doesn't have enough time to take on the job of homeschooling. Any parent that does homeschool, needs to be a pretty organized person and be disciplined enough to follow through with it. They have to put together their own curriculum plan and you also need to be disciplined enough and self-motivated enough to follow through with it each day. Like the first answer points out, homeschooling is not an "easy" way to get out of going to school. Since he "doesn't listen to kids", try to find another person about your age who is homeschooled, and see if the parent(s) could talk to your dad about it, where they may be able to point out how they go about it. See if you can find a few adults who favor homeschooling, and maybe he just might listen and see the different approach to school. Finally, don't argue with him about it, that just might make him more against it. You also have to try and see his reasons for not wanting it. Homeschooling is not for everyone. Good Luck!! You need to show and give extreme examples to your father to justify the homeschooling. See if you can get the schools grade for how well they rate in the state for education of its students. This should be available from the administration office in your county. It is something that should be publicly printed, yearly, maybe your dad missed it. You could also bring it up to the principal of the school, if you feel that your not being challenged. Maybe they have a gifted class that you can attend, that will give you more of a peak in education. The only people I know that will advocate for you about homeschooling is the other parents that homeschool and the state educational system that regulates homeschooling. You should be able to find that number through your governs office. Good luck.
Dont try to be homeschooled. I used to want to be homeschooled and it sucks so much. You cant meet other kids your age and go to art gym and all that stuff. Id actually rather be dead than continue being homeschooled.
I don't think they'd let you homeschool yourself, but if you want to be homeschooled, show them that you are responsible enough to actually do the work. My brother is being homeschooled right now because he is too smart for the grade he's in. You could try that, but it might be kind of difficult.
the reforms of education
The only way you will convince them of this is by either not being allowed into any other school in the district or convince them that there is no decent school in the area - in both cases they will probably just send you to boarding school. Because of the way homeschooling works, they will be very adverse to homeschooling you; if they had considered it more viable than a proper school, they would have done it already.
I am homeschooled. I really enjoy it. Some reasons why we went was because I got tired in the long days of school. Some others reasons are 1) no bullying 2) personally I learn better 3) you can end school a year earlier in some states 4) no homework 5) you can pursue other subjects you really enjoy 6) some people find people that are homeschooled are better in the world (being polite, etc) than other kids. But that's just some people's comments. Anyway, I hope you can get homeschooled!
