Reasons Why Home
Schools are Better Than Public Schools
Moms and Dads Love little Johnny and Jamie and they want the best for the
welfare of their child. Teachers care... and Administrators could care
less. Money is always the bottom line for your child's education. If your
child is in Special Education they are worth more $$. If your child is
in Special Education and getting Bilingual Services then they are really
worth a lot of money. Money is ALWAYS the bottom line for 'caring' for
show that children who get one-on-one attention in their educational
process do better academically: Moms give better one-on-one, than teachers
one-on-twenty-five. And, home schooled children's standardized tests scores
are much higher nation-wide than public school children. Home school children
are also less "stressed out" and thus have fewer learning disabilities
associated with stress.
Parents can decide when and where the educational process takes place.
Vacations can be taken anytime with the family intact. Parents can also
decide how old their child should be before starting their education. Some
children are not ready at six years or eight. But, all children are ready
to be read to... starting at birth. Children who are home schooled won't
come home from public school tired, drained and upset from their daily
regimented activities inside a classroom.
and children can choose their own curriculum and area of study. Children
who have the ability to go through their studies quickly can go on to another
subject and children who are slower can get more attention and progress
to their own ability.
taught at home don't have to worry about bullies and assault, harassment
and teasing, rivalry, ridicule, and emotional or physical violence
that may traumatize them all of their life. They also won't have to worry
about being labeled a 'tattletale' if they talk about what's happening
to them. According to a government study, one third of the nation's children
are afraid that 'somebody might hurt them' at school.
can help their children develop socialization skills instead of friends
at school who may be lacking. Sometimes the argument is made that
home schooled children need to develop the same socialization skills that
public school children get... that's a bunch of hogwash. That's why home
schooled children are known to be so polite and more mature, because they
don't hang out with a bunch of confused, undisciplined, and rowdy children
in overcrowded classrooms. (note: We hear about classrooms
that are overcrowded... shouldn't the system be glad that parents want
to ease a teacher's burden by home schooling? - No, remember, money is
ALWAYS the bottom line!)
can talk about God and Values and their religious beliefs. Your
child won't have to worry about saying a little prayer before a meal...
or before a test! True freedom of religion can be practiced. Public schools
practice the religion of Secular Humanism, an Anti God, Socialist philosophy
for a 'robotic' generation of thinkers. It is truly a special child
who can survive the onslaught of unconstitutional propaganda taught inside
public schools and still think and do spiritual things as they come home
to their family after school.
within the family can be maintained. Parents who home school won't
have to worry about intrusive information being collected on them, and
their family, or surveys and data being filled out that deals with private
family matters, which is none of the public school's business.
can be taught to the parents standards and religious values. Instead
of taking the view that teens are animals with no control so they must
use birth control pills and abortion to solve their immoral acts, parents
can teach the value of abstinence and that because they are Children of
God they have the ability to resist temptations that might hurt them emotionally
and physically. Parents can teach their children about the commitment and
sanctity of marriage, and that a sexual relationship can wait until marriage.
children have less temptations with 1) drugs and drug abuse. 2)
Swear words - which are uncommon in the home schooled child's vocabulary,
whereas "F" words are commonly heard in public schools, inside and outside,
even at the elementary level, and 3) immoral behavior.
of all is that home schooled children waste less time. They don't
need to be bused or driven for hours each week to school, they don't have
to wait to eat lunch, go to the bathroom and they don't have to wait until
the teacher has helped 20 other kids before getting the help they need.
released earlier this year by The National Center For Education Statistics
of the U.S. Department of Education gave the following breakdown based
on a survey from 2003:
said they homeschooled because of concerns about the environment of
schools. (See http://www.jaredstory.com/bully.html)
percent said they wanted to provide religious or moral instruction. (See
16 percent said they were
dissatisfied with the academic instruction of other schools.
9 percent gave other reasons,
such as family unity and individualized teaching.
said their child had a physical or mental health problem. (See
7 percent said their child
had other special needs.
