Reasons and Benefits for Home Schooling


Why home schooling is an option for some

* ill health of a child

* children can learn at their own pace

* unhappiness

* loss of a ‘childhood’ – parents don’t want to miss out on their children

* bullying

* children changing drastically into someone you hardly recognise

* lack of support for individual needs

* lack of respect for kids, such as for their special talents and gifts

* increasing stress of tests/targets/deadlines

* intense pressure and unreasonable/unrealistic expectations put upon children and teenagers

* overcrowded classrooms with people your child may not like or get along with

* the ratio at home is 1on1 (or a couple more) not 30+ on 1
