This thread has been created to continue a discussion started in the Dating thread. I now yield the flaw to the critics of home education.

i'm against homeschooling: if you live within an acceptable range of a school and don't need any special education you shool go to a public school, this way you will learn social skills. I'm not saying that homeschooled people aren't social/don't have any social skills but it makes a difference IMO.

GedI now yield the flaw to the critics of home education.

Is there a pun intended or is it simply an error ;)

I don't like the concept of home schooling. Going to a scool is not just about learning facts (math, grammar, language, history etc.). The school is also a place where you learn to socialise. In the modern day society, a lot of things have to be done in association with otehr persons. In school you learn how to mix with others and, more importantly, you begin to learn to work in groups. I know it may sond a bit long-hairish but it's the truth. I remember my old teahcer telling me this because I have always been better working individually.

Home Schooling, in my opinion, is too sheilded. Public education is good cause it is more of an experience with real life and confrontations.

I am for it. Simply because the standard school system is flawed it's focus too much on the whole class and not on any one student. So it's easy for a child to get left behind. Theres others but I'm too tired....

i thought public schools rocked. i always knew when and where the partys where, and its fun to do stupid shit in class. ex. pretending your high in class, turning on my CD player as loud as it will go, and unplugging the head phones so everyone can hear some ACDC, ummmmmmmmmmmm...............other stuff like that.

I don't know about other countries, but home schooling in America should not even be allowed. This day and age, learning social skills is much more important than being a math genious, or spelling expert.

people who lag behind can choose a lower (easier) level of education, and even when the lowest level is a problem for the students they can always go to special homework/help lessons, get extra attention of the teacher(s) etc. Only kids who can't be bothered to learn will have a problem, or kids that are on a crappy school that dennies extra help after the normal school hours... but sinse every school want to have a high rate of students passing their exams (or normal tests) almost every school will gladly help the kids (becuase they care or out of self intrest).

Well im homescooled, and been al my life. I dont like it but I will be done with highschool when I am 16:deal: . I think I may just decide to go to regular school any way. I hate:mad: the fact that I dont have many friends. Of course I think I will be picked on if I go to regular school since I am sort of a nerd:uhoh: . I think if I had a choice when I was 7 or 8 I would have went to regular school instead. But my parents decided for me.:(

Shielded from what exactly? From reality? I think you'll find that I have a reasonable grip on reality.

Well I'm not playing a demo of my life so obviously this is the real thing.

Napalmand confrontations.[/QUOTE]

Like the confrontation where a 14 year old girl got dads rifle and started picking off nine year olds as they got off the bus at school?

Yeah and what about the people who wanted to learn stuff? I bet they really appreciated you're loud music and pretending to be high.

Welcome to Britain mate ;)

Up until you need to get a job, when with no qualifications or certificates you're completely screwed.

Yes it does make a difference, but I am of the opinion that it is a difference for the better.

Have any of you heard of the home education camps? Large amounts of us get together, indeed at one I went to recently there were in excess of a thousand of us, this provides, in my opinion, more than enough opportunity to socialise, then there are clubs and things you could go to, if you wanted to associate with people who go to school, so there are enough opportunities to socialise if someone wanted to.
