My favorite site….http://learninfreedom.org/socialization.html

Larry Shyers used to be against homeschooling and set out to prove it was bad for kids. He now is an advocate for Home schooling because of his studies.

I have homeschooled 11 children (all ours) for 18 years – one of the best websites – Homeschool Legal Defense – there is a plethora of scientific studies and success stories. The site is www.hslda.org

Can’t help you on the con side – my experience with home education has been incredibly positive. 3 homeschool graduates – all in college and/or have degree – rest still in homeschool. Don’t let anybody tell you that homeschoolers are not socialized properly – (which seems to be the most popular argument against) I can go to any fast food restaurant and find public schooled kids who can’t carry on a conversation with an adult. Children need to taught social skills from an adult, not another child. Parents are the key to any child’s education – parents are responsible (before God) – whether they homeschool, public or private school. The “buck stops” with parents. Sorry – I’m babbling on . . . check out the website – it will give you plenty of fodder!!

You can not say home schooling is always bad or always good. It depends on the child, and also on the abiltys of the parents. It may also change, maybe a child benefits from home schooling in a certain age but not in another.

Smaller class size provides opportunity for more personalized instruction.

True socialization with all age groups as you interact with life. No where else in life will we be grouped with people all our same age, and move from place to place by the sound of a bell.

Experts have documented that the typical homeschooler is 2-3 grade ahead of brick public schoolers and 1 grade ahead of private brick schoolers

here are some quotes and other information

“It is a miracle that curiosity survives formal education.”

-Albert Einstein

“Teaching should be such that what is offered is perceived as a valuable gift and not as a hard duty.”

-Albert Einstein

“It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.”

-Albert Einstein

What does education often do? It makes a straight-cut ditch of a free, meandering brook.”

Henry David Thoreau

“What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child”-

George Bernard Shaw.

“If a child can’t learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.”

-Ignacio Estrada

“Thank goodness I was never sent to school; it would have rubbed off some of the originality.”

-Beatrix Potter

“All men who have turned out worth anything have had the chief hand in their own education.”

-Sir Walter Scott

“What is most important and valuable about the home as a base for children’s growth into the world is not that it is a better school than the schools, but that it isn’t a school at all.”

–John Holt

“I hear, and I forget. I see, and I remember. I do, and I understand.”

— Chinese Proverb

“Education has opened many, many doors. However, there are still innumerable doors shut tight — unopened yet. These are the doors of the future. Perhaps one of my children will open one of these doors– I shall help give him the key.” –Anonymous

“Education comes from living life, following passions, accessing information, observing, reflecting, and being inspired by wise and courageous elders in the community.”

– Claire Aumonier

“My grandmother wanted me to get an education, so she kept me out of school.”

-Margaret Mead

“In general the best teacher or care-giver cannot match a parent of even ordinary education and experience.”

“You may be interested to know that Eragon would not exist if I had attended public school. Homeschooling gave me the opportunity to pursue my interests, time to dream, and time to write….”

“And I had freedoms the majority of today’s teens don’t have. I didn’t have to contend with peer pressure to conform to social fads. I could be myself. Without the frantic schedule kept by many teens, I had time to think, to daydream about adventures, to create the world of Algaesia”

-Christopher Paolini

i was home schooled for 1year when i moved country when i was 13. i spent most of the year crying because i didn’t have any friends and just wanted to go to school. my grades stayed the same and i gained nothing from it but heartache. I’m sorry but i think children need to socialize as well as learn to become great adults. home schooled people seem to be shy and struggle in the work place more.

sounds fun. ok homeschooling. i suggest u brainstrom the word. write it down on a page (in the centre) and draw squiggly lines stemming from it and at each end write wat comes to mind. then separate the pros and cons. example: lack of social development as a con. and pro will be avoiding social problems like peer pressure. goodluk!
