Public school or homeschool?

PostThu Sep 18, 2014 7:42 am

Choosing to send your child to a public school or homeschool is a big decision to make which is why it would probably be best to research the benefits of each option before making any decision.
The first comparison will be the learning environment for both public and homeschool. With homeschool, you are assured that your child is in a calm and safe environment every day. Supporters of homeshooling believe that children succeed better in a safe, comfortable environment that they are familiar with. It is believed by the homeschooling supporters that the home is the safest, most secure environment where a child could learn well. When a child is home, he or she does not have to deal with peer pressure. This gives the child a chance to focus more on studying. They do not have to worry about what to wear to school the next day; they are protected from having to fit in with the popular crowd who gives much attention to less important things such as buying the right clothes at the right store, wearing the right shoes or playing the right video game. With homeschool, children can enjoy a peaceful and calm atmosphere. Not only that, they also get to work in their own pace and in their own style.

However, supporters of public schools are also certain that the same thing proves to be true with students who go to public schools. Even though public school classrooms do not have the same calm and peaceful atmosphere that a homeschool has, supporters of public schools believe that the disarray of the classrooms is actually helpful to children in succeeding in the future. Because reality is, the real world is not as calm and peaceful as we would like it to be. They believe that children who are living a very sheltered and protected life are likely the ones who will have difficulty adjusting to the real world after school. They also believe that it is essential that children learn how to interact and to work with one another for them to be able to build real, dynamic skills that are necessary in the real world. Public school supporters strongly believe that the goal of a public education is not just about furthering one’s academics. They say the mission of a public school is to teach children the skills and be able to use and apply them through meaningful, needed interactions with their peers and also their teachers.

Each environment holds specific and helpful opportunities for children to learn. But as a parent, how can you determine which environment is helpful and suitable for your child?

Many of the public schools have so much "disarray" that very little actual learning happens in such undisciplined class
environments. There is plenty of time for the child to adjust to the "real world" and learn how to interact with others-
outside of the classroom.
Real dynamic skills necessary in the real world
are more likely to be achieved "as needed" in consideration of the individuals need to conform or not.
That is something for the parents to decide and not for teachers, as well as what's the "peer group" and "social group" that's best suited to the child. I have very little faith in the public "educational" system and in the content and in the methods being used to teach things not relevant and that are even very harmful to what is necessary and that which really should be taught.

These are really nice points you have mentioned. I read an article of Emily Sachar, a journalist, spent a year as a teacher at Walt Whieman intermediate school in New York City. She wrote that as a teacher's in a public school that school in almost complete chaos. Desks were regularly broken, fights frequently boke out among students, profanity was constantly used, and classrooms were in so much disarray that it was almost impossible for teachers to survive until the end of the day. Parent will wonder how anyone could possibly expect learning to take place in such an environment.

You have shared very informative and useful information here. You know in Phoenix kindergarten some learning activities are also added for children to learn in easy way with fun. That’s why this kindergarten is very famous in our city.

That's not a public school, but a private Episcopal school that "values diversity [read: racial-mixing]." It is not about home-schooling that puts more value on White racial homogeneity. Most home-school curricula, unfortunately, are Christian based -- I've heard estimates of 75%. It's the other 25% that are non-Christian that interest me.

All Saints’ Episcopal Day School, a Phoenix private school, is a ministry of All Saints’ Episcopal Church. The Episcopal way is an inclusive tradition that values diversity and embraces the full spectrum of all human beings. In particular, one of the distinguishing characteristics of the Episcopal ethos is that we invite people of all religions to be members of our community. We believe that we have much to learn from one another.

Hello Folks,

Sometimes the enemy leads us towards what works
and for whose values and truths shall prevail in our
own children:
http://research.calvin.edu/german-propa ... /fuchs.htm

And:
http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/people/m/mil ... ls-00.html

Compare the race-mixing propaganda of the Jews in "South Pacific"
to all that of Hitler's National Socialist Germany and it is clear what
JS had said about the Jews are just the bare tip of the iceberg to all
of their lying hypocrisy and Chutzpah!

"He’s had the “Stuermer” printed;
That’s why all Jews detest our Streicher.
My, don’t they make an uproar!
To Streicher it is all the same.
He’s fought his way for many a year.
All round the world he is renowned.
The newspaper in America,
It writes of him from time to time.
The Jewish hate and Jewish pest
Is shouted abroad both East and West,
Throughout the whole wide world.
It’s no wonder the Jews start trembling!"


The Dark Hates the Light of Truth Most of All! :D

Best regards,
Cosmotheist

More Palestinians to home-school (or tent-school) this year.

Israel destroys Palestinian classrooms
ahead of first day of school

Four Palestinian communities have seen their educational facilities – donated by international bodies and NGOs – destroyed on grounds they have been built without permission.

Palestinian children in the occupied West Bank have started the new school year in improvised tents after Israeli authorities demolished their classrooms the day before term began.

Around 80 children aged five to 10 from the village of Jub-Ad-Dhib had to attend classes in cramped tarpaulin tents or under the hot sun on Wednesday. One day earlier, Israeli authorities had decided to confiscate and destroy steel terrapin cabins used as school buildings along with other educational equipment.

The area was sealed off, declared a military zone, and security forces used stun grenades to keep residents away, Israeli human rights group B’Tselem said in a statement.

Israeli media said that locals had thrown stones at soldiers during the demolition...

Critics of Israeli policy point out that building permissions for new Palestinian homes and infrastructure in the occupied West Bank are almost impossible to obtain.

“The demolition of a school building the night before the start of the year epitomises the administrative cruelty and systematic harassment by authorities designed to drive Palestinians from their land,” Roy Yellin of B’Tselem said.

The Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories, the body which implements Israeli policy in Palestinian areas, did not immediately respond to The Independent’s request for comment.

Netanyahu’s hysterical rhetoric is just diversion from West Bank
Last month, the Netherlands lodged a complaint with the Israeli government after dozens of Dutch solar panels donated to the same village were confiscated by Israeli authorities, again on planning permission grounds.

More than 300 structures in the occupied West Bank demolished by the Israeli authorities in 2016 were at least in part funded by the EU or international NGOs, an Israeli military official said earlier this year.

Last year also saw the highest number of Israeli demolitions of Palestinian structures since rights groups began record-keeping.
