This cannot be answered definitavely because it depends greatly on the area where you live, the abilities of the person teaching the children in the homeschool setting, what you feel is important for an education, the learning styles and needs of the children, if the parents/guardians stay involved in their children's education at public school, if the homeschooled students are given opportunity for interaction with their peers, etc. Either way, if you want to ensure good education for your children, stay involved and stay informed, and lead by example.

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).

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.

I reckon that public schools are better. Although Home-schooling gives one to one tuition, a public school school also builds up a social background and life. I agree.

its because you build a better social skills Not all social skills. Public school is better because you can have fun, and you are prepared for the real world.

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).

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.

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.

I am homeschooled and I have answered a few questions just like the one that you've asked. Homeschooling is not nessisarily better, but it is easier to concintrate on the work at hand. Our teacher is our mom. She helps us when we are stumped. Homeschooling is fun, but I wouldn't call it better.

Public schooling has a certain criteria upon which they must teach the students. They are taught by professionals that have graduated from University. Homeschooling on the other hand is taught by a family member/friend and the teaching generally poor.

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!

One benefit of public schools is that the children have the opportunity to learn alongside their peers instead of just their siblings. Another benefit is that the education is more diverse.

No, you will be taught at your own pace.

The eTAP program is not really any different to other homeschooling programs. It allows one to enroll their children for homeschooling courses on all parts of the curriculum.

Yes, you will be taught at your own pace.

In so so so many ways it is. There are lots of opinions on why it seems worse, but most of those are roumers and steriotypes. Do some research, and you may find out that it is indeed a good fit for you!

I don't know if I would be considered a kid or not, but I am in that age group, and I think homeschooling is better than pubic schools. You get more one on one time, therefore, I think, you learn more. You also get to go on field trips more and do science experiments more.

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.

public school is better than online school because it is nit only your knowledge. And online school is if you really don't want learn anything public school is always helpful because the knowledge can be given in many ways and when you are online schooling you have to read off the screen and understand what it means.

I would personally disagree with this statement. I feel homeschooling or home education is better because the learning can be tailored to the childs needs, they have more opportunities to get out into the real world than those in a school, and spend more time with family, who they already have a close bond with instead of in a hostile and unforgiving school environment.

Yes- there are some online public schools available for free, varying by state. You may need to get software for this, but it is less expensive than other homeschooling.
