It is where a child will stay at home and be schooled instead of going to a "real" school. A lot of people believe that a child can not get the same amount of education or social skills if a child is home schooled

Popular understanding has it that home schooling is something of a young upstart. Home schooling was the original way of teaching.

Think of Abraham Lincoln, Thomas Jefferson and, in England, Jane Austen. All home schooled. Granted home schooling has assumed a higher level of formality than its predecessor, but the fact is, the concept is not a new one. Over the years, the percentage of families' home schooling has grown substantially. The United States, with its emphasis on the individual, leads the world in this form of schooling with 50,000 home schooled children in 1985 growing to 1.5 million in 2000. This means that more and more people are taking their children out of conventional schooling.

Actually, a homeschooled child is normally way more sociable, and often they are much brighter than those in public schools and private schools. They have a lot more access to knowledge and are not held back in a classroom were they have to wait for thirty other kids to move on. Homeschooled children are often unfairly judged, but keep in mind that the NATIONAL Winners have all been homeschoolers.
