Disadvantages of a Public School Educationfrom: Maxx Family Life
When parents choose to have their children attend public school, they're usually satisfied they're going to receive a 'quality education'. But, as a parent, you have to ask if you're really getting your money's worth? And even more important, are children really receiving the type of education you'd expect from this kind of a learning procedure?
Having your children properly socialized is proclaimed one of the greatest advantage of schools. It's at school where a child develops the basics of social skills that help him/her make their way in their future career. The reality is, however, that a regular school-going child is only able to interact with his/her peers. Your child could end up bullying younger children or fearing older ones and he doesn't know how to behave with an adult due to the nature of the school environment. A homeschooling environment, on the other hand, creates a more natural social environment.
Normally a regular child who attends public school can't read literature or keep silent or think in depth about any one specific topic. This tends to create and artificial 'busy'ness, which is imposed upon him or her by the school, which generally disallows quiet contemplation. Rowdy and destructive behavior, as seen among peers, is more noticeable in school-goers.
Another disadvantage it that there's little long-standing knowledge gained by regular school goers because everything is geared towards learning in order to pass exams. Too oftent the teaching provides little correlation with the facts of life. Child may know a lot, but understand very little. Homeschoolers, in this case, have an advantage and usually beat regular school goers. In most case, homeschoolers emerge more able to successfully deal with the outside world.
