Which is better:nPublic School, Home School, or Private School? Why?
If you have good parental and teaching skills, then perhaps I would vote for home teaching and only if proper time could be allocated to it.
In my opinion the best choice is private school. But of course you should choose or rather your parents should choose what you learn. Typical parent does not how to teach, or does not have enough education to teach properly. And what's more I think this kind of education is not effective in most cases. About public school, I think there shouldn't be any public schools at all. And no one should be forced to learn. The best is private school, you pay and you demand specific things to be learn. Education should be treated as service.
i believe that being in public schools is better because your around a mixed set of people and i think that being home school wouldnt be the best idea because even though your getting teached one on one which might turn out to make you very smart you just might not be happy.
In my country its best to be in a public school given that the school here would be given enough tools and teachers be given enough incentives to provide a much better education. Private school here are pretty much on hierarchy level if your rich they cater to you if not well your on your own.
I think it is all a function of the teacher - student relationship regardless of where it takes place. There are many folks in the home schooling business who may be doing their children a disservice overall but really do not see it that way. Public school can be a good place if the child is mentally ready to learn and basically demands to learn. Private school....I am not sure they are a lot better than public but the class size is smaller and the student gets more 1 to 1 with the teacher. WB
Any of the choices you mention can work. Depending on the student and how he/she best learns might be a factor. The most important part of the equation is for the parents to be involved. Get to know the teachers, people in the office, what is developmentally appropriate . . . A team approach works best when both parents, teachers, and the child "are on the same page." You've heard the expression, it takes a village? It is true for education!
Have utilized all three with my seven children ages 10-25; eighteen years home schooling, one year private (not worth the expense), children are currently in public. We wanted our children to have a firmly established world view, close familial bonds, as well as a strong basic education without all of the distraction, peer pressure/bonding. Home schooling best met these desires for our family, until finances made it impossible to continue. Our children are well adjusted, academically sound, avid readers, community involved, artistic, social, and even enjoy each others company (most of the time . The six that are now in their first year of public school, transitioned smoothly, made friends quickly, got involved in activities and sports without hesitation. I believe this is due to the foundation built on the home education environment they started with.
