Hmm. Public schools or homeschooling? Before you answer, let’s pretend you don’t have to worry about daycare costs, going to work, or any of the things that could complicate this. Which do you think would lead to a better education?
Okay, so public schools or homeschooling… Of course, there are exceptions, but as a whole, I believe a public school education would be better. There. I said it. Here’s why. As a child, I believed adults were invincible and the greatest things on Earth. As an adult, though? Ugh. I’m completely disappointed in mankind! I see that adults, myself included, are flawed and, sadly, ignorant and oftentimes under educated. Worse, there doesn’t seem to be any widespread desire to continue to learn after school. I mean, I’m going to need counseling after finding out just how many parents don’t emphasis reading to their children!!
All jokes aside, I know those are harsh words, but they’re my feelings, just exaggerated. So many people get frustrated with public schools and think they can do better. Sure, some of them can, but the majority simply don’t have the training or knowledge of the teachers in our public school systems. Possessing knowledge is one thing, but teaching it in a way that others can comprehend is something else entirely.
So, public schools or homeschooling? What are your thoughts? Which do you think would lead to a better education?
