Right. I'm just saying that being homeschooled doesn't automatically mean you stay at home all the time. Frankly, I think I'd die without communication with the outside world -- maybe that's why I'm on the internet so much. Tongue

Right guys. But I think we're forgetting that though the public scholls may suck in America, that is not necessarily the case where Rigs is from.

GT has a point. In Europe private/public schools are the best choice for your kid.


Also, my point here is that public schools in Europe give you some vital lessons of communication and other stuff that a school at home cannot give you.

@LL: Yes, but it means you must stay inside until you're done. In my case you have to go out, which is always good.

Again, you're assuming that homeschoolers stay inside. It's not like we have certain set times for doing homework -- as long as it gets done before bedtime (preferably before the late afternoon), we're fine.

Also, like Zar said, it depends on the family. Some homeschooled families are more active than others. And believe me, I've been around plenty of other people, whether homeschooled or not; I'm a sociable enough person (a little shy at first, but sociable).

I'm not even sure I'd want to go to school, considering that most schoolkids I know use profanity. If I'd been in school all this time, would I be using profanity, too? I can't think of any "vital lessons of communication" that you could learn in school that I haven't.

Not only that, my birthday falls almost two months after the "cutoff" date, which means that if I were in school now I'd be finishing up ninth grade, rather than working on homework from tenth grade to basic college-level work.

While school is a great choice of education, it generally depends on the kid and parents. The way I see it, homeschooling can be just as effective as going to normal school.

You are totally missing the point. We are talking about two different educational systems. We don't have grades here, but rather divide the school to three daprtments.

Nevertheless, regular school in Europe has and will be the best. Heck, none here knows that there's homeschooling. In a schooll, as opposed to another homeschool, you learn how to be social, and learn how to act in a group, and work as a group. Schools prepare a human being by simulating a small human society-- so when the adult is ready to go, he can work for not only himself -- but for the better of the world.

Also, I may use profanity in school but that's just a way of living really. There's nothing bad about it, and it can be funny sometimes, really funny. But you don't have to.

Bottom line, normal schools in Europe give you some vital stuff I believe homeschooling just can't do, unless done with a group. Now I don't know how bad schools are there, so let's not go there.

In most of Europe there's primary school which has six classes/grades, then there's secondary, which has more three and that's where you can drop school and work. Nevertheless, if you stay on school, you go to High School which is another three years.

Then there's a lot of ways to pick.

Do you know something that a school can never do? It's called being around family, and learning from them. In homeschooling - at least with me - I usually talk about each subject I'm going to do, with my mom. In a school, one-on-oneness cannot be found, at least to as well as in homeschooling.

On top; of that, of course, is a lack of pressure to conform, you know? I'm not under pressure to dress a certain way, act a certain way etc. Therefore, homeschooling allows you to be different, which can be a good or a bad thing, depending. I view it as a good thing in my case...

Also, I might add that my experience with public schools is with American ones. Wink

Riglax, that wasn't the point I was trying to make. I'm not trying to put down schools; I'm trying to say that homeschooling can be equal too school.

You seem to think that homeschoolers can't be around kids. What I'm trying to say is I've been around plenty of kids -- and what's more, unlike most schools, I've been around plenty of different groups.

Profanity is not funny. Okay, maybe I'll use a bit when I'm an adult, but I'm against teenagers using it. Not only that; like Zar said, there's peer pressure in schools, and with homeschooling you can avoid that and bullies.

So while I'm sure Europe's school system is great, I'm not talking about it. I'm talking solely about homeschooling.

The great thing about the public school system is that everything else seems better by comparison.
