Many parents wonder if homeschooling is the right or wrong educational route for their child, especially if their child is struggling in public school. Many parents will hesitate because they are uncertain of the fact that homeschooling is beneficial for their child. But I assure you homeschooling is highly beneficial for the student, and here’s why.
In public school education you have to keep up with teachers and study from a textbook, but with homeschooling you can learn at your own pace and learn from all sorts of sources, including online schooling, which means that you don’t necessarily have to buy textbooks, you can just use an online course. Also homeschooling teaches the student how to become self independent and reliable because their education is now their and their parents responsibility.
A homeschool student has far less distractions than one who goes to public school, and a lot more freedom to learn things outside of the standard public school curriculum. You can never really fall behind in school because homeschooling is about learning at your own pace, not at the pace that “everyone” is supposed to be at.
In an average public school, school lasts for around 6-7 hours, not including homework, which leaves the student without time to do their hobbies or extracurricular activities, but with homeschooling you can compress your school to about 3-4 hours(this is how long my school usually takes), which leaves you time to do other things.
In conclusion, homeschooling is far more beneficial to a student than public school. Homeschooling teaches a student a wide variety of life skills that will be useful for the students lifetime such as responsibility and discipline, these skills public schools do not teach. So yes homeschooling is beneficial for the student.
