Yesterday I wrote about homeschooling – the financial aspects of it, but i could not stop thinking about the subject. I wondered why i would home school a child if private school is an option. I realize that these kind of debate makes prospective parents think that children are really expensive. Thanks to Jason and Lakita for putting it all in perspective today.
don’t ever let the cost of having a child keep you from having a child. You’ll never be ready if that’s the case.
I also realize that my current views on this subject will likely change when we become parents. Nonetheless, here are some few comparisons of private and homeschool aspects based on what i have heard and read about this subject.
|Factors||Private school||Home school|
|One on one training||Yes|
|Aadvance to next grade faster||Yes|
|High college admission records||Yes||Yes|
|High security\safety standards||Yes||Yes|
|High peer pressure||Yes|
|Child feeling isolated||Yes|
These aspects both positive and negative almost balance out. For parents or relatives out there who have waked either path what motivated you?
