Home schooling

  1. 1. Rohit<br />Home Schooling is better than normal schooling!<br />
  2. 2. Definition of Home Schooling<br />Home schooling is a method of teaching, where students are taught at home and are taught by their parents or tutors. They generally don’t go to school although some may go for certain activities or classes.<br />
  3. 3. Reasons for Home Schooling<br />Parent occupations involve extended stays outside of a school system<br />Families living in rural areas where the educational options are limited or not available.<br />Parent educational experience influenced their decision to home school their kids<br />Belief that the “one-size-fits-all” concept used in public schools is not beneficial to their children<br />
  4. 4. ADVANTAGES<br />The main advantages of home schooling involve a parent’s increased control & influence in the following areas:<br />Religious/Philosophical Beliefs<br />Socialization<br />Academics<br />As well as increasing a child’s “family time.”<br />
  5. 5. Socialization<br />Fewer behavioral problems<br />Less negative influences from peers <br />More respectful<br />Increased interactions w/ parents (adults)<br />Promotes more mature and poised youth<br />
  6. 6. Academics<br />Custom-Designed Curriculum <br />Flexible schedule to teach desired curriculum.<br />Follow interests with a passion, which provides a profound love of learning<br />Foreign languages<br />Music<br />Other special skills/academic interests<br />Spend as little or as much time on a desired subject<br />Learn things when ready<br />Encourages & strengthens a child’s individual potential<br />(B) Children can learn at their own pace.<br />Move as fast or as slow as needed<br />Encourages self-motivation<br />Encourages thinking for themselves<br />
  7. 7. Do home schooled children actually do better than public school children?<br />On most academic measures, home schooled students outperform public school students on standardized tests.<br />These students scored higher on standardized tests than public and private school students in every subject and at every grade level.<br />
  8. 8. Results!!<br />Standardized national tests of skills & achievement:<br />Home schoolers scored better than 70-80% of all test takers<br />By 8th grade, the median performance of home school students is almost 4 grade levels above that of students nationwide.<br />By 12th grade, home schooled students scored in 92nd percentile in reading.<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. CONCLUSION..<br />Although Home Schooling is not widely practiced mainly because not all parents know what it has to offer to their children. <br />I acknowledge that home schooling is a viable option for parents rather than sending their children to public schools.<br />
  11. 11. Rohit<br />Thank You!<br />
