It can be, it really depends on which curriculum you use. If you are doing Internet school, it is harder. I think the level of difficulty of homeschooling depends on who you are and how motivated you are. A very good math curriculum is called "Saxon Math".
There really is no correct answer to that, as it just depends on what curriculum you use, if you use one.
Meaning no offense in saying this, but I think that public schools' approach to learning is very ineffective. They are loading kids down with homework, and it's getting them no where. I am a homeschooled kid myself, and cannot stand to be around public schooled kids my age because they are just so stupid (compared to me anyway). The way public schools are approaching learning is what I would call "the memorizing method". They drill facts and theories and equations into kids' heads until they memorize it. This is a HORRIBLE way to learn. Have you ever heard more than 10 kids say that they LOVE learning at school? No, not school, LEARNING at school. You can easily say "Hahaha! Who would say that anyway?!?!? Everyone dislikes learning! It's just NOT FUN!". Actually, the way we are learning is not fun. When we are little, before we've been taught that we disike learning, we want to get into everything! Touch, feel, taste, listen, smell, EVERYTHING! People are naturally curious and do, indeed, like learning. Learning should be fun, hands-on, and interesting to us.
I won't argue with you that some homeschoolers are idiots. I will also agree that there are some complete genuises who have gone to public school. It just depends on YOU.
I would say that public school is harder, because there is usually a lot more work. But on average, homeschoolers are smarter.
It's not harder than public.
I am home schooled on my computer with a program called CAVA (California Virtual Academies) they have a program with k12 an online homeschooling program. With CAVA you have your own teacher, and you have class sessions too where you can video chat with the teacher and other students. Home schooling is more academically challenging. Thats why its a better option then public school.
Home schooling has its pros and cons. You can give your child a better education than some public schools can offer, but you also take away a majority of the life lessons your child would learn in a regular school. For me, homeschooling was ten times better than the regular school system. I got a ten times better education than the public school system (which is a joke), anyone with half a brain can do better than the public education system. I was also protected from the harshness of the school yard which I am immensely grateful for. And all my life lessons where taught from my mother anyway, all school taught me to do was to swear and have sex with random people. My mother also made sure I never missed out on opportunities to socialize with people I liked. I got all the socializing of a regular high-schooler without all the teasing etc. of the normal school yard and a better education to boot. I think homeschooling is a very good idea and I am speaking as one who has gone through both homeschooling and normal school (til grade 10).
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.
Homeschooling or homeschool (also called home education or home based learning) is the education of children at home, typically by parents but sometimes by tutors, rather than in other formal settings of public or private school. Although prior to the introduction of compulsory school attendance laws, most childhood education occurred within the family or community, homeschooling in the modern sense is an alternative in developed countries to attending public or private schools.
Public school is better than homeschooling for some families. I am a homeschooling parent. For the most part, I think homeschooling is a great thing. Most of the families I have seen are very dedicated, do the work with the kids, take their kids out and make sure they are well socialized, and have a lot of fun. However, I have seen a family or two that don't sit down with the kids to do the work or get their kids out of the house to be around friends or are involved in social situations. In these cases, it is probably better for the child to attend regular school.
If you mean in the subject of school, I would recommend homeschooling your preschooler (for now at least). Then, maybe by the time they are old enough to go to an elementary school, You can decide either to keep home schooling them or to send them to a public or private school. Also, if you have doubts about homeschooling your child, you should know that it does not make a college less likely to accept a home schooled student than a public or private schooled student. If you feel that your child could get a better education at home, then you should home school them.
Certainly not all public schools are better (or worse) than all home schooling. Public schools introduce the student to the problems and benefits of interfacing with other students, perhaps preparing them for the world. But then this may have its problems too. The best we can say is that everything has its benefits and difficulties.You get to join all these cool classes, mingle with other people you don't even know... and someday that guys gonna be famous and you're gonna be too!
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.
