Every children recive a certain years of complusary and free education in morden society, yet, some people agrue that teaching children at home is better than put them to schools. In my opinion, the benifits of public education are outweight the advantages of home schooling.
Advocators for home schools believe that home schools can provide more attentation to children in compare to a public shools, given that public schools have an average of more than twenty to one students to teachers ratio. Moreover, every child's abilities and personalities are unique. Parents always know their kid's better, therefore, home schooling can provide the optimial teaching plan for children. Last but not least, children suffer less stree if they don't have to do regular examinations and tests in school.
In contrast, there are lack of opportunities to practise soical skills at home. Needless to say, soical skills are vital to the morden soicety, therefore home school children may not be able to adopt to the work enviroment when they grow up. Furthermore, not all parents are qualified teachers, they may know their children well but lack the essental skills to teach them. Statistically, there are less than 10% of the parents have an university degree, as a result, the chance for average families to give a better education then public school is grim.
In conclusion, although there are a few advantages for home schooling, the chances to sucess are low. Average families can not provide sound eduction to their offspring without professional training, despite parents have a closer relation to their children. One should not risk their children's future to pursue an unsustainable education plan.
