 Disadvantages of public schooling

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.
