Home school VS. Public school

So there are advantages to both sending a child to public school and keeping him at home. At home you don't have to worry about your kids hanging out with the wrong crowd, or getting into fights, but then in public school they get more curriculum (albeit forced down their throat), and it just seems logical to me that a teacher could teach better than a parent and a book. Then again, i've learned most of the things I know from the internet or from literature and not from teachers. It's an interesting thought to ponder, whether you have kids or not. If you had to go back to school would you want to do it from home? I prolly would because I'm so damned lazy. I dunno i'm gonna think some more about this and come back to it.

Okay i've been looking at some numbers, and it appears that homeschooled students' test score averages are almost double that of public schoolers in all subjects. Now that I think about it, I think alot of kids fear the wrath of their makers more than that of their teachers, and this is probably a huge motivation for them to complete assignments and study hard for tests. These are the only stats that are impressive that I can find, most other factors in general are pretty even. I geuss it comes down to the willingness to fork out the money, and the time and effort that goes into teaching them and making sure they do their schoolwork (is it homework?)

I'd love to be able to afford to home-school. I think it's important that as a parent I encourage reading and learning and homework. Try and instill a sense of wonder about the world that only learning can solve.

More time and effort you throw at any one kid the more of that kids overall potential is going to be realised.

Yea wanting to homeschool your kid and having the time and money to do it are two totally different things, I understand.

Plus, I'd have to know what the hell I was teaching. That might work up until high school years. Then I'd have to remember calculus and stuff? Oh man...

I could teach most subjects up to (and in some cases including and beyond) high school level.

I'd be concerned they would miss the social aspect of going to school, if I had kids myself I'd much rather just send them to school. That and I am not a teacher so not qualified to teach them the way an actual teacher would be.

I've actually taught, admittedly only to adults, but I imagine there is some skill cross over.

According to the numbers, homeschool kids excel in all subjects whether or not the parents are qualified to teach. While I'm sure it would be helpful, especially with those tricky math problems, I think that the constant motivation would assist a child even better.

I can't say that i've met a homeschooled kid, but I imagine that it sux when ur young cause you miss out on the regular everyday bullshit like recess and gym class. And lunch, lunch was the shit.

And he probably practices his drumming on the skulls of his murder victims, which he collects as trophies. He leaves the eye sockets intact so he has something to gently caress his foreskin when he goes in dry for the skull fucking.
