Why is going to school better for your education than being home schooled

Report as

it's better because not only do we need to be educated in math, science, english... we also need to learn how to socialize

Because school has certified teachers. It's their profession.

It's not

Generally ... when scored on testing ...

Public School < Private School < Home Schooled



If you are a product of the public schools, the "<" means "less than" ... OR
Public School (less than) Private School (less than) Home Schooled

BTW - As far as "socializing" ... federal law requires school districts to allow home schoolers the same extra-curricular opportunities as public school students.

You learn about society and are exposed to alternate views and debate.

Jen is right. Formal education is NOT better at school. Life lessons are learned by exposure( these are both good and bad). School exposes you to a whole range of people, from really nice to bullies. It exposes you to people of different cultures and beliefs. You meet more people. I'm an old guy and I'm still close friends with people I met when I was 5 and when I was 10. You learn street smarts.
Having said all that, most parents who home school their kids are smart. They usually put their kids in a range of activities so they meet lots of other kids. We didn't home school our kids because we didn't want them to be sheltered
