But through homeschooling, it is certainly possible to keep your child at grade level, or above, with the same amount of time you would spend on homework alone at a public school. Kids get more hands-on learning with their only being one kid with homeschooling they get your undivided attention. They can move at their own pace rather than at the pace the school district wants the school to go. So if they don’t understand something they can slow down until they fully grasp the understanding of the unit they are on.

Children who are in public schools can participate in a lot of extracurricular activities, such as band, sports, and clubs. The kids also get a lot of socialization which will help them in their later lives. They will encounter a lot of different personality types. Public schooling is also free rather than having to spend money on all the supplies you need to teach them at home which can cost up to 500 dollars. Homeschooling takes a lot of time to plan and to implement educational strategies. Being a stay at home parent while trying to teach your child can sometimes be a struggle. Rather than just getting your child up and on the bus to head to school on time.
