Home School vs. Public EducationOne of the toughest decisions that parents face today is whether to home-school or send their child to public school. Most Americans do not home-school their children. However, those who do, certainly have good reasons. Although there are supporters on both sides of this educational issue, it is important to understand why some parents choose to home-school their children versus public schooling. One of the many reasons that home school parents feel passionate about home schooling is their religious beliefs. Since religion is no longer permitted in the public school system, many home-school parents feel that their children have been short-changed in this area. It is their wish to raise their children in an environment that not only allows religion but also embraces it (David 212).Having deep religion beliefs, parents who home-school for religious reasons are said to be very passionate people. It is this passion that feeds their childrens educational needs. With the parent in charge, home-schooling can be based solely on religious activities if the parent so chooses. It is also this passion that will allow the parents to teach their children to the best of their abilities. Home-schooling allows the parent to be in charge (Vaughan 646).Another reason is the public school system appears to have allowed a stereotype to be attached to home-schooled children is socialization. This stereotype suggests that home-schooled children are confined
