    To home school or not to home school?

    There is a god bit of controversy over the thought of homeschooling children.  Some are all for it, and others are dead set against it.  What are the opinions of the public on this topic?  How do you feel, and why do you feel this way?

    I already wrote a few hubs on this subject, so I figured I'd offer the most pertinent ones I have smile. This one covers some of the considerations that any parent considering homeschooling their child should bear in mind, because it's really not for everyone:

    And then, here are some of the benefits of homeschooling:

    I also have a hub on my personal experiences as a homeschooled child, but that's linked in the first one, so I'll leave it at these two. In short, I am completely in favor of homeschooling and think it is largely responsible for the success I have today, but again, it's not for everyone. Homeschooling is a huge commitment, and some people just plain aren't in a situation where it'll work well.

      Love your hubs, and agree that homeschooling is not for everyone.  I personally have decided to let my children experience both situations.  More on that here http://jengeurian.hubpages.com/hub/Our- … ng-Choice.  Thank you for commenting!

    Not to home school.I believe that learning will be easy if you bring your child to school. Social interaction is important, it makes the child learn fast and will develop many aspects of his life including self-confidence and self-esteem.

      To each their own.  Everyone makes the decision that works best for them.  However, even having a very loving home as a child i have always had self-esteem issues.  I don't blame public school, but they definitely didn't foster it.
