Overview

Home schooling is becoming more popular as many parents become disillusioned with public schooling and want to develop closer relationships with their children during the formative years. The mainstay of the movement seems to be Christian parents who don't like the secular/ humanistic curriculum and the so-called worldly influences of other children in public schools, hence, they choose to educate them on their own with Christian values.

The other thrust seems to be that the public school system simply fails in its obligation to churn out well-educated children ready for the competitive real world.

The home schooling movement, arguably started by John Holt in the 1970s, is based upon the idea that children learn better by themselves following their own natural interests.

Home schooling is legal in the United States. Some states require no notification or monitoring of any kind while others have standards and tests. See state laws at the Home School Legal Defense Association.

The problem with home schooling could be the lack of socializing but all you have to do is sign the kid up for sports, music clubs, etc. You can start a homeschool social club.

For some parents, the idea sounds good at the outset but after a few weeks of one-on-one contact with the child several hours a day, it becomes clear that it's hard work and takes dedication if you want to educate your child properly.
