Yes I would agree with that, here's a big factor as far as I'm concerned...

"Home atmosphere is more relaxed, and schedule can be tailored to child’s needs"
"Homeschooling tailors learning to specific children’s educational needs"

I think that is a gigantic benefit as I was raised in the public schools I knew a lot of kids that would have been better off, public schools can be a nasty place lol. But I think it is a good idea to zero in on a child's specific needs, obviously that's not feasible in a large setting it's just a benefit IMO.

I hope not just karate classes - there should be other reason for kids to meet up then to performs acts of violence on each other!   Playing in an orchestra or doing some theatre... much more co-operative.

I'm all for homeschooling. I think its beneficial just because there's no distractions to interfere with the lessons being learned and it doesn't require all day like public schools. Homeschooling also if I'm not mistaking the only required academic lessons needed by law is math and language arts everything else isn't really required but can definietly be necessary if the parents want they're kids to be prepared in all types of topics .This way when the kids venture off to college (which in most cases they will) they'll be prepared for college. Public schools only focus solely on the star or taas or whatever main tests they have to take for each grades which doesn't prepare them for college, hence i strongly believe is why so many students today make no efforts to move forward on to college because it might just seem like they have to learn just for the tests alone .Yes tests are to show that your learning, but that shouldnt be the only focus. The focus should be on what your going to do with what your learning how to implement it into the lives of themselves. I personally don't see the point in the whole "being-social" while being young because if you don't notice homeschoolers are the most talkative outgoing bunch put them in a room with people and they'll find it easier to communicate with others whereas kids in public schools are so scared or nervous by their peers they juat rather stay to themselves or they get into fights because they think thats the way to handling a solution. Homeschoolers may not be in social gatherings often but they're more social then public schoolers. Its better, safer and much more beneficial for kids to be homeschooled than be in public schools. If you don't agree with me sorry not sorry i stand with my belief.

It's fascinating that someone writes an enormous, anecdotal, unreferenced paragraph, and expects people to take his/her opinion seriously.

Thank goodness these people are allowed to vote.

I think that school is net detrimental whereas homeschooling is net beneficial.

This may seem nonsensical but there's a reason why 'I hate school' is said much more than 'I love school' and why 'I don't mind school' is said far more than 'I dislike school'. Those that suffer in school suffer immensely and those that don't suffer in school do not at all love it because it's never ever tailored to them.

Homeschooling does open parents who abuse children up to easier ability to contain the victim but when it comes down to it, I guarantee you that the type of people who are private tutors etc are far more likely to spot a child's psychological scars and signs of neglect and/or abuse than an ordinary school teacher.

The biggest flaw of home-schooling is perhaps when it's done via online courses only as this truly enables abusive parents to keep their child contained but one thing about the online world is that it's far easier to type out a traumatic truth than to say it out loud in words so the argument ends up negated by the likelihood the student will email a teacher or fellow online friend of whatever kind about their situation and then the person on the other side of the screen, if at all local, can help get the police involved.

"School" as we know it is not malignant, it's just not great in any way at all and that to me is like guaranteed suboptimal education for someone.

The only people who advocate for home schooling are those who want their children to be equally as dysfunctional as they are. In other words, they wish their children to be social outcasts. A truly selfless parent, who had their child's best interests in mind, would never consider removing them from school and educating them at home. 

Traditional education brings forth the following: 

  • social interaction
  • daily structure 
  • recognizable achievement
  • intellectual cohesion (for example, those who do not attend school may end up like RationalMadman, in that they will have scattered and disorganized brains). 
  • freedom from parents or other caregivers

School enslaves you to teachers and bullies why would you want to be free from parents and caregivers? If they're abusing you it's more likely you could turn to a private tutor than a school teacher.

Daily structure is apparent even with homeschooling but the difference is it doesn't stay as rigid and in all ways that's better.

Teaching you to interact with bullies and sheep is not going to ever help you as you grow up. It often has led to suicide and general unhappiness.

HimeschooHome gives recognizable achievement. The exams are often of even higher recognised examination boards than the standard school ones.

Are you quite sure? Have you ever discussed your behavioural issues with a doctor?

That's confidential but since it's the patient who has the right to waiver it I will say that I have Asperger's Syndrome, ADD (without physical hyperactivity so not ADHD) and undiagnosed narcissism.

The psychiatrist(s) have said I am extremely far from being bipolar as well as schizophrenic both of which were concerns to myself and which I explicitly questioned on them. They even specified that I am almost the inverse of a bipolar individual as I have unusually consistent energy levels and self-control capacity uniformly based on what I'd answered their questions and how I went about my life in tough scenarios.

You think you can get to me but you know that saying:

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.


Well, for me it wasn't a thing I needed a saying to learn. For me, it's quite blatant. You got under my skin once and I allowed myself to go with the anger. It won't happen again and you cannot aggravate me again. The more you mock me, the more politely and bluntly I will answer you even admitting flaws in myself as you taunt. This way you always end up looking like the bad guy, which is what you undeniably are.

So, keep at it, keep taunting me. It will never work again to make me snap.

Also, I don't need to talk about your mental illnesses, of which are severe. I know what you have and also know you will have deceived psychiatrists if you did ever see one which I doubt you have because of how ASPD works.

Anyone can say 'oh you're having a manic episode' and laugh along with people calling someone else a moron and refer to them as an unoriginal joke who no one has respect for. Your insults are neither imaginative nor accurate. It's hilariously pathetic the way you abuse people actually.

Why do you think I am trying to provoke a reaction from you?

You are correct on that, at least. Truly strong people do not need to see psychiatrists.
