    Which is better? Home or Public Education?

    Depends on the person. I enjoyed both, I had ind. studies and Public school. I like ind. studies because I learn faster than others and so I only had to work 2 out of the 6 recommended hours to get my work done. However you get less attention and so one my "assignments" were done I had no one motivating me to do the extra assignments to get done faster. I like public education because it's much more sociable which is one of the more important things I think you need to learn in life. So it's all how you are and how you look at it.

    I would say public Education is the best.Being at a public school allows you to interact with other pupils and defines your character. Socialising within a school environment is an education in its self.The positive of home learning i would imagine is more intense one to one education

    Home education generally gives you better knowledge, where as public education gives you better social skills and experience. As such, I would probably have to go with public education, because social skills are more important.

    It depends on who you are, what resources are available in the community, and to what extent parents are willing to go to give their children a well-rounded education. The stereotype of "antisocial homeschoolers" is a pretty silly one, as far as I'm concerned, and is only true in people who don't differentiate between homeSCHOOL and simply sticking a book in front of their kids' faces. For me, homeschooling was better by far in every aspect, and having to go to public school only limited my social interactions and learning opportunities. If a parent doesn't have the time, energy, and inclination to really devote to investing in their kids, then do them a favor and leave their education to someone else. I wrote a lot more details about my experiences in my hubs, as well as a much more detailed answer to this particular question:

    thanks for the comments guys.

    but how about the expenses for both kind of education? do you think less expensive means less educated too??

    Home education is by far better. A look at the standardized test results researched by Dr. Brian Ray (nheri.org) will demonstrate that. By definition, the public school average is in the 50% percentile, while home schooled children do much better. And as far as socialization goes, putting 20+ kids the same age in a classroom with 1 adult is not socialization. And if you insist that it is, consider the results we see in today's public schooled teenagers. That's not the kind of socialization I want for my kids.
