Why is homeschooling safer?
There's no answer because there's no long term evidence either way. It's probably not. Even if you could statistically show homeschooling was somehow safer, I would assume that any correlation is intimately tied to the distribution of those home-schooled vs those public schooled. This would be heavily weighted to wealth, and therefore better neighborhoods (due to socioeconomic status). By extension, everything would be safer and you could no more say that homeschooling is safer than being in an affluent neighborhood is safer.
Additionally, even if everything I said could be disproven, the temporal characteristics need to be taken into consideration and social behaviors of those home-schooled vs. private schooled vs. public schooled would need to be correlated. For example, is there any regression in terms of violence that can NOT be attributed to socioeconomic status when comparing home-schooled students against public-schooled students at 40 years old (aka, did homeschooled students learn the social lessons necessary to successfully navigate the world when compared to another sample).
Safer? To say that I doubt it is an understatement. Different? Most certainly. Is this question actually answerable even remotely? No.
Homeschooling is not a paying job. Parents who don't like public education and aren't satisfied with the local private schools have the option of homeschooling their kids in some states. If you're talking about teaching other people's kids in their homes, then you are talking about tutoring, not homeschooling.
No. Homeschooling is usually mandated at a federal level and there are numerous countries (like Brazil, China, Germany, and Greece among others) which prohibit homeschooling. There are also nations like Portugal which set homeschooling requirements so high that it makes it nearly impossible to homeschool even though it is legally permissible.
There are many diffrent options such as unschooling, virtual homeschooling, and triditional homeschooling. Unschool is where you create the curiculim and diside what to teach. Virtual homeschooling is the easiest out of all homeschooling in my opinion because you have profesional teachers and the school sends you all the supplies you need (some even send a computer). You may want to look for the best schooling options for you but if you choose virtual homeschooling…
I'm not sure if I've ever seen an article on the downsides to homeschooling - there are just too many advantages! A study was completed last year which you may be interested in reading: Perhaps a downside could be burnout by parents, partcularly if they've been homeschooling several children for several years. Good luck! Since you asked, NBC did a "Law and Order - Special Victims Unit" on homeschooling being a cover for child abuse…
Homeschooling, like everything, has its pros and cons. Many of them you will find at this website: http:www.homeschool-rewards.com/reasons-not-to-homeschool.html -OR- http:www.homeschool-rewards.com/homeschooling-vs-public-schools.html. You can see for yourself the topics of the page. Be careful, you may just WANT to homeschool!
Most states in America don't require parents of homeschoolers to be college educated. The vast majority of homeschooling parents, whether they are college educated or not, give their children a sound education. But there are some parents who neglect their children. To ensure that homeschoolers get a proper education, some states require them to be evaluated annually. Even in states such as Alabama where homeschooling is illegal, many parents are homeschooling their kids through a…
No Homeschooling is amazing! Especially if you do FLVS, you can work at your own pace and it is so much easier than traditional school. Take it from me, a current homeschooler who was a seventh grader in August and is now a ninth grader since March, homeschooling is the best that you could ever do!!!
Yes. It depends what kind of homeschooling you are doing and your age. If you are doing the book homeschooling, then it is more helpful to have a parent around to help you, but if you are 15 or older, it is not necessary, it is up to your parents. Online homeschooling is completely different, you can do it on your own because you can listen to the lessons.
I am a Republican and I fully support homeschooling. I know hundreds of other people like me. Is there any other question behind that question? -- Well, no.. Not really.. I just wanted to know cause I live in Sweden and homescooling is unlegally here. So I wonder how it is in the US. If there's any party (among the republicans or the democrats that is against homeschooling. I have write a question like this…
Because homeschooling is between the parents and the children, discipline is enforced by the parents. It is wrong to ask whether homeschooling teaches discipline, because that depends on the parents. Some parents prefer to have regimented school days, others prefer a more relaxed style of teaching and learning.
