Personally? No, I do not think homeschooling is effective. I have never been in that situation, but on a personal level, I feel as if homeschooling is the easy way out. In a public school, there are a lot more requirements and assignments but I don’t think homeschooling is the same way. Not only that, I feel like people lose friends and social time when they are at home in front of a computer for 8 hours a day 7 days a week nonstop.

Another reason homeschooling wouldn’t be the best option is that you wouldn’t be able to attend homecoming or prom. I also think people who are homeschooled will never know how to interact with difficult people, but also because sitting in the same dark spot for 8 hours a day is not healthy at all. Most importantly, most children who are homeschooled will never know how to socialize with people because all they did was sit in the house on the computer. Most kids who are homeschooled may do their work, but there are other distractions such as cellular devices, television, games (PS4, XBOX). Some children don’t like homeschooling due to feeling isolated from others.

Also, most parents are not okay with homeschooling because they have constantly worry about the educational experiences they are providing for their child. Another reason most parents are not okay with homeschooling because of what other parents have to say about homeschooling. Some parents aren’t able to sit with their children or make sure their children are working on the program and not being distracted by everything else around them.

At the end of the day, if it were me I would not want to be homeschooled. Yes, a school may be for learning, but a lot of people go to school to learn and socialize and that is one thing you’ll never be able to do while homeschooling.

A lot of people have their opinions about homeschooling, and I have mine. I don’t think it will benefit anyone.
