Homeschooling provides positive and appropriate socialization with peers and adults. Children who learn at home are largely free from peer pressure. Children who learn at home feel comfortable interacting with people of all ages. Here are 10 reasons that will convince almost everyone.
The number of students learning at home in the United States, the United States and the world is steadily increasing. While this increase in numbers is due in part to the COVID-19 pandemic, it's no surprise that many parents realized that it was a superior option. Homeschooling shortens the study day, as I explained above, and gives you absolute flexibility so that you can include “extras” in your daily schedule. Homeschooling makes sense from the point of view of achievement.
Did you know that in the United States today there are about 2 million children who are homeschooled? This represents an annual increase of between 7 and 15 percent. Globally, nearly 40 countries have banned homeschooling or have restrictive laws. So what are the benefits that these children get and do they actually do well on standardized tests, such as the SAT and the ACT? A study of 20,000 homeschooled children revealed that they definitely scored better on tests. This was particularly evident in children who had been homeschooled up to the high school level.
In another study, students studying at home on the SAT test scored about 67 points higher than the national average. Homeschooling is legal in all fifty states, but there are a few requirements you must meet. Parents must choose or create an educational curriculum that meets certain educational standards set by the state. However, as long as those standards are met, parents have more educational freedom with homeschooling than with public school.
Students may have more opportunities to choose what they learn with homeschooling and can learn at their own pace without having to keep up with more advanced students. Homeschooling provides parents with an opportunity to incorporate religion into their children's education and can also promote a closer family environment. Non-traditional learning has been shown to be a better education system for children. According to the National Institute for Homeschooling Research, students who study at home score between 15 and 30% higher on exams than students in public schools.
In addition, up to 24.5% of all children who learn at home have enrolled in grade levels at least one or more steps above their age group. You are a breath of fresh air. As a parent who taught in public schools for 12 years, I was determined that my children would not attend public school. There are a lot of good teachers in public schools, but our hands are tied.
You must follow the line set by the district and the state. Your schedule is set for you, with very little time to remedy student delays or to enrich the students who are coming. You must stick to the mandatory curriculum with so many restricted standards that there is no space or time to deepen understanding or understanding. I'm sure I could reach 50 or more just from the point of view of a former teacher.
