Homeschooling Argument Essays

Is homeschooling good or bad for children? It depends who you ask. There are over 1 million homeschool families in the US so there must be something they are doing right. When researching homeschool, be sure to read all of the homeschooling argument essays.

The argument for homeschooling. Homeschooling argument essays for homeschooling abound. First and foremost, no one has a more vested interest in a child’s success than that child’s parents.

Keeping that in mind, what is best for a child, your child? Some children excel in a traditional school setting. They just do great. Many however, do not thrive in such an environment.

Did you know many of the discipline problems in traditional schools are created by extremely bright children who are bored to death? If your child hits the middle of the bell curve, then traditional school may be just the thing for them. What about other issues? Many parents find the environment of public schools appalling.

This is not a new phenomenon. As far back as the 1960’s a NY State Supreme Court Justice, Allen Murray Meyers, refused to send his child to the local public school in New York City as he deemed it unfit for human habitation and no child should be subjected to that environment.

This article was written up in the New York Times. Essays for homeschooling are numerous. Read any book by Cathy Duffy, Mary Pride or John Holt. To read all of their writings will take you a great deal of time, but it is time well spent. If you want to be in control of your child’s educational, moral, social and religious development, homeschooling is for you.

The argument against homeschooling. One of the most outspoken opponents of homeschooling is the National Education Association or NEA. Their homeschooling argument essays are numerous.

It is not surprising as this is a group to support public school teachers. If everyone homeschooled, these individuals would be out of a job. They also oppose tax vouchers for families who send their children to private schools.

Keeping that bias in mind, Dave Arnold, a member of the Illinois Education Association and head custodian at Brownstone Elementary School in southern Illinois has an essay entitled “Home Schools Run By Well-Meaning Amateurs”.

Mr. Arnold has pretty much decided homeschooling is bad based on what he has read on a couple of websites. He feels that parents are not qualified to teach their children because they do not have teaching degrees. Another aspect of his argument is that home school children are not properly socialized.

This homeschooling argument essay, accessible in its entirety on the NEA website, nea.org, search their website on home school, continues to make the claim that when it comes to educating and socializing their children, parents are incompetent amateurs.

NEA has a long standing position opposing all home schooling activities. When it comes to reading homeschooling argument essays, be sure to understand the source of those essays. All essays will have some bias.

It is impossible to write without inserting some of your personal bias into the material. However, is the bias based on love and understanding of children’s needs or is the bias motivated by money and greed? Once you know of the bias, you can certainly make your own decisions.
