    I think home-schooling would benefit me a lot because I am struggling with maths. I don't know how to tell my family because they don't cooperate with me and other reasons. My family will then ask so many questions and I don't think I would like them teaching me.

    I don't know what to do.

    Oh Yes, I am home schooled. And the advantages of home schooling are just beyond doubt. Just like you, I was able to study subjects that were particular intrest to me. I studied ActionScript, BASIC along with my regualar science subjects. I developed a taste for refined English literature. Before I went to school this year, I had much dificulty in adjusting to the new schedule and enviroment. But, I still miss those old days of home schooling.
    But, Home schooling has one disadvantage that I noticed is the lack of devlopment of social skills and self-confidence. Home schooling is definately not a good idea for those students who are not responsbile in their studies and yes need teachers for teaching and correction.

    I have been home schooled for over 2 years now, and I am really enjoying it. at the moment I am doing my:

    Child development,
    ICT, and

    GCSE's early.

    I still see all of my friends, and I have made new ones.
    What people don't seem to realise is that there are hundreds of thousands of kids who are home schooled.

    I understand how many of you people think that as a home schooler that we dont get a social life but that is entirely NOT true. My sister is in FTC robotic i am to join next year with that we travel all over the United States with the robotics team of about 45 teenagers. I play a ton of sports including diving,softball,and swimming and I am an avid volunteer in our town. So you see being home schooled dosent necessarily mean that you don't have a social life I can't remember a weekend that I have not gone and hung out with friends.

    There are ways to meet people other than school and statistically home schooled students perform better academically.

    Hi, Yes I do agree- you need to learn to be able to cope with life's problems- school helps you to build self respect and confidence to speak out etc. I went to school untill year 6 and I'm glad I went,..
    However, being home educated has its benefits that I believe that it is better than secondary school because you get a far better education ( almost like a dream when you have a 1-1 tutor) You can take your GCSE'S early for example I took GCSE music when I was 12 and now on A level ( I am 13) and just taken biology. And honest I am not that clever. It is down to 1-1 learning,..
    As regards to social skills- I find that I have no problem as I am constantly round my friends and having parties going to parties etc. So with me personally I do not suffer as regards that area- but that is just me ( everyone is different.)
    But saying that- I am more than glad I went to school- I know children have been taught at home since 5 and basically can't speak or articulate very well.
    So there you go- I'm sure you could never discuss all the aspects on just one message board! smiley - smiley

    just wonderin, as im bein homeschooled now.only just started. how did you get into college at 15 and a half?   I think that home school rocks. I've been doing homeschool for 5 years and where i live i'm the smartest because of homeschool. So kids who want to do homeschool should be able to.
