CitationParagraph(Home Schooling vs. Traditional Schooling)

Accordingto Green-Hennessy (2014), education has become one of the key factorsdetermining every person’s success in the future. This in turn hasled to the demand for comprehensive and useful education as one ofthe premiere goals for every parent for his/her children. However,when it comes to school some parents are torn between homeschoolingand traditional school plan. Although every schooling approach hasits definite merits and demerits, it is key for parents to note thequality of education is what determines its effectiveness (Riley,015).It is in turn advisable for parents, when choosing the type of schoolfor the children, whether home or traditional schooling, to alwaysconsider the merits and demerits for each type, as well asdifferences between the two forms of schooling. However, withreference to the debate as to which of the two schooling is right,parents as well as teachers should be aware that, the effectivenessof a school depends on the idea whether the needs of the learner arebeing met (Romanowski, 2001).

Comparingthe two, traditional schooling offers the social environment to thelearners a factor that greatly lacks with home schooling. However,with reference to (2015),inspite of the merit related to social environment, traditionalschooling can be destructive, especially to students who deviate fromthe mainstream social spheres. On the side of homeschooling, onegreat benefit is that, there is no homework as there is greaterfreedom as compared to traditional schooling (Romanowski, 2001).However, homeschooling isn’t an advisable option for workingparents as it requires close monitoring of the student. Finally,homeschooling limits a learner’s ability to engage in criticalthinking (Green-Hennessy, 2014). In summary, it is advisable forparents and guardians to always weigh out the learners needs toensure that whichever option of schooling is selected, the learnersbenefits most.
