    Should all children go to school or is it sometimes better for them to be taught by their parents?

    The decision needs to be accessed with guidance counselors at schools that monitor home school programs and suggest the best education.  Also the choice to home school depends on the parents preference and how they would like to have their child introduced to the learning principles:  privately or publicly.

    While it does depend on the individual kids and the kind of time and commitment the entire family has, there are many instances in which it is better to be taught by parents. I was homeschooled throughout most of school, I learned far more than my public-schooled peers and tested much higher than them. The common argument seems to be that homeschooled kids will not have a social life -- all I can say is that with 12 4-H projects, soccer, orchestra, ballet, skiing, and ice skating there was rarely a day during the week that we were home all day.

    I believe that being homeschooled can be just as good as public school and possibly even better. Personally I went to public school, but three of my cousins were all homeschooled, two of them graduated with honors and the other is my age and is currently attending college.

    I brought this up in another question, but I'm wondering if children who are home-schooled have a rougher time moving away from home as an adult?
