Introduction

Home school vs. Public school Par Sara Ammoun Work presented to Mrs. Lecourtois For the course of English Grade 11 (EAE3UA-04) Collège catholique Franco-Ouest Tuesday, April 17, 2012 Students attend public schools not only to acquire skills in various fields of study but also to make friends and interact with them in different environments. However, some students have special needs either physically, intellectually, socially or emotionally and lean to home schooling as an alternative. Public schools have much more of an advantage than home schools. It is believed so because of the curriculum, timetable and social skills. The curriculum has a large influence on the different learning methods of public schools and home schools. To begin, there are differences between the curriculum found in public schools and the curriculum used for home scholars. These differences have an impact on the way students are being educated. Students studying in public schools go through a curriculum that is applied everywhere across a province in Canada for instance. It is regulated and has proven to be quite successful. A curriculum is “a course of study designed to result in a specific set of learning outcomes”[1]. In public schools in Ontario, a specific curriculum must be followed in order for students to go through all the subjects, methotology and materials they must aknowledge for future studies in university or college. ...read more.

In all, they'll waste less time because school is all about them. They learn things at their speed and can concentrate on their educational weaknesses. Students can also get more individual attention from their parents. Without the crowded schools, the student can have a reduced amount of distractions and avoid peer pressure due to the lack of peer interaction. These are all great benefits, but, they can also be harmful to student?s growth as an adult. Without a structural environment that public schools present, students don't learn how to handle deadlines and rules. This really can cause damage to home schooled students later in life, especially in the business world. Students need to learn how to listen to authority figures, besides their parents. They need to be able to follow someone else's guidelines and work under pressure. Due to the fact there aren?t much deadlines and stress in their home school environment, students have less preparation in handling pressure. This makes students that attended public schools more attractive to businesses. And due to the lack of interaction with their peers, home schooled students would not be able to interact as well as students that have attended public schools because they already learned how to deal with peer pressure and such as opposed to home schooled students who would have to deal with this for the first time. ...read more.

Conclusion

because you are exposed to different types of people and know how to interact with them which gives you a jump start to a good interview and having a lot of social interactions will also make it easier for you to find a partner to build a family with, because you are able to interact with someone from a different sexe that isn?t part of your family. This explains why public schools have a far more of an advantage then do home schools when it comes to social skills. In conclusion, the curriculum, timetable and social skills are all things to consider before choosing whether to attend either public or home school. Although, public school does have much more of an advantage in all three factors as opposed to public school. Public schools help someone grow to becoming something in life as opposed to someone who is restrained who only knows what happens in the quality of his own home and are not able to reach out or discover what is to offer outside the periphery of his home.
