Disadvantages of Homeschooling

Disadvantages of Homeschooling - Our two previous posts themed "homeschooling" in which the first tells us about what homeschooling is, while the later discussed the benefits from homeschooling either for students or the education system. Like the money coin, everything has good side and bad side as well. Besides the advantages we could find from the system called homeschooling, we in fact will face the disadvantages of this model. As a personal opinion, I assume that the one who only study at his/her home meaning taking homeschooling will have lack concern about what going on in our society.

When we consign our children to public schools, we feel satisfied that they are receiving 'quality education'. But, are we really getting our money's worth? More importantly, are the children gaining anything from this kind of a learning procedure?

Socialization is hailed as one of the greatest advantage of schools. This is the place where the child picks up the rudiments of social skills that help him survive. But in truth, a regular school-going child can interact only with his peers. He may bully younger children or fear older ones. He does not know how to behave with an adult. This is because in the school environment he interacts only with his peers. A homeschooling environment brings in a more natural social environment.

A regular school going child cannot read literature. He cannot keep silent or think in depth about any one thing. The artificial 'busy'ness imposed upon him by the school disallows quiet contemplation. Rowdy and destructive behavior, as seen among peers, is more noticeable in school-goers.

There is little long-standing knowledge among regular school goers because most things are learnt for the exam. There is no correlation of facts with life. The child may know a lot, but understands very little. This is where the homeschoolers beat the regular school goers. Ultimately, homeschoolers emerge more adept at facing the outside world.

From the text about we can see that among the benefits or advantages we can get from homeschooling, we will give the students some burdens about society concern that later on it will make them quite hard to live in real society.
