Difference between homeschooling school system and a regular school system?

I am cracking up over all the incorrect information about socialization. When my dc attended public school they interacted with other white Christian children. Their parents all made about the same income. They only interacted with kids the same age as them. Talk about being in a small little box! It was not until they started hsing and getting out in the world and past our small town that they met and had a close relationship with children of other religions and races, and incomes. They learned about Hindus, Pagans, Indians, African Americans, just to mention a few, because these were the people that they saw every week…and still do. If your idea of a hsing mom is an evangelical Christian in a denim jumper and her hair in a bun, you are the narrow minded one. Sure, there are hsers out there like that, but the majority I meet are people from all walks of life who have found a way to educate their children and find new and creative ways to open the world to them.

I would say it’s a matter of definition. For purists, homeschooling is done primarily by the parent(s), although 1 or 2 co-op classes are acceptable. The type of schooling you are describing is really distance education, not truly homeschooling, because you are part of a much wider “class” of students, and your parents are not the primary teachers. You have assignments sent to you by certified teachers and you send assignments and tests back to them for grading. They are often available for help via the internet. That’s distance education and most colleges also offer it in some form.

Basically, I think it’s just the choice of the parents of whether they want their kids in the public school system or not. More and more are realizing that it’s not the best situation for them, so they are deciding to take them out of school. But they don’t know how to do it themselves and they want the kids to be successful! So they go through one of these homeschooling systems.

The only difference is that the children don’t leave home for their education. If you get into a home school group it is helpful. I personally am not a proponent of home schooling. I believe the children need to see other adults as role models and learn respect for others. Not to mention the social aspect of home schooling.

My main objection to Home Schooling is that school is not only the process of learning scholarly, but learning to deal with, and mix with, the world around you. A child who is Home Schooled does not learn to intermix with his peers. And, this is education, too, and very important on a child’s future.
