The way of how we educate children has long been a controversial topic as it is crucial to the development of our next generations. It is believed that home education suits children's learning best, while some people argue that it is more appropriate for children to learn from a school. In my opinion, I prefer school education. In this essay, the benefits of the two ways of education will be discussed, as well as my personal opinion.
On the one hand, home education is more personalised and flexible. Parents, who know their children best, could tailor-make some teaching materials and adjust their teaching approach to their own children. This is especially helpful to those with special education needs. It could be very difficult for a child with learning difficulties to catch up with other children in a class. While learning at home could allow them to develop on their own pace without pressure.
On the other hand, people would think that going to school is important as it provide a safe environment for the children to practice the skills they learnt. Apart from gaining knowledge, children could also learn to take care of themselves and practice social skills at school. Parents would not always by the children's sides, hence, the schools provide such an opportunity for children to learn to be independent and solve problems by themselves.
In conclusion, I think it is more beneficial for children to learn from school, as it could help children learn to be more independent and establish interpersonal relationship with others, instead of acquiring knowleadge only. Humans are living in groups, and it is inevitable for us to interact with others, so practising social skills at school, which is hard to practice at home, is definitely useful to a child's development.
