Hey, please help me think through an important decision I have to make. I need to decide whether to put my kids in public school or homeschool. What are the pros and cons of public school vs homeschool?
Hi, and thanks for the question! I'm a public school teacher.I think this is a really important decision. I was homeschooled through 12th grade, but my husband (who is also an educator) was public school educated from K-12. We both have kids now (and he's a teacher, too), so we've had to make this decision for our family.
I think it's really important that you start off by thinking about what is most important to you in your child's education.What are the pros and cons of public school vs homeschool?
I was homeschooled, and I think it was an amazing experience for me. It gave me freedom to learn at my own pace, which is something that public school wasn't able to do for me. I had a lot of independence in learning how to teach myself things.I also think that homeschooling has a lot of benefits with socialization.
I was able to get a lot of experience interacting with kids and adults in different situations, learning how to talk to people that are older than me and younger than me, etc.I also think that homeschooling is really good for special needs kids. If your child has a special need, homeschooling is a great way to get the extra support they may need.
The biggest disadvantage of homeschooling for me was that I didn't have any peers my own age. I never had an opportunity to learn how to be around other kids my own age and interact with them in social situations.
I never learned how to deal with bullies, or how to talk to people that are different from me.
I also think that homeschooling can be isolating for kids who have a hard time making friends. If your child is shy and doesn't make friends easily, they may feel isolated if they are homeschooled.
I think that the biggest advantage of public school is that they have a lot of different kids to interact with. They can learn how to deal with different personalities, and they can make friends in person rather than just online. Public school also has a lot more resources for special needs kids, and if your child has a hard time making friends, they may have more opportunities to interact with other kids in public school.
The biggest disadvantage of public school is that it can be really hard for shy kids to make friends. Kids who are reserved or don't like confrontation might not do as well in a large classroom with a lot of different personalities.
I think that the biggest disadvantage of both homeschooling and public school is that kids don't learn how to be independent learners. They are taught what to do, rather than learning how to figure things out on their own. This can make it hard for them when they go to college and have to take tests without a teacher telling them the answers.
I think that it's really important for kids who are homeschooled or go to public school to be involved in extracurricular activities. I think that being involved in sports, music, theater, etc teaches kids how to work with people that are different from them, and how to deal with the pressure of being in front of an audience. It's also a great way for kids to learn how to be independent learners.
My husband went through public school, but was homeschooled for high school. He thinks that homeschooling is a great way to give kids more freedom, but that public school is better for socialization. We both think that homeschooling or going to public school really depends on the kid.
I hope this helps you think through your decision! Let me know if you have any other questions!
