Few days back I was having a discussion on homeschooling with a friend of mine. According to him it is the need of time. But I think to make our kids assertive and courageous we have to have these qualities in us first. As it would take a lot of guts and a tough mindset to leave your career and stay home with kids for their proper care.
What are your views on homeschooling?

In education, i believe pubkic schools may not be the best. Other foreign neighbors of mine have the same opinion.
However, it is essential for the the children to learn how to blend in the society and recognize what sort of levels are in front of them. For that, schools are the best medium for that.
I used to date one homeschool person. The moment she learns that she is in the top of HER school standard. She is into full arrogant, rebellious mode.1
I was homeschooled till high school. One of the good things about it is. that you can get the same amount of work done on half the time. But you dont make many friends doing it.1
I support parents' rights to raise their children as they see fit, including educating them.
That said, I'm not a fan of the 'new' form of homeschooling where the parents choose curriculum. The only way that really works is if at least one of the parents is actually a teacher who knows how to teach. As a member of the college scene for many years, I've seen too many home-taught children who were college aged and could barely read or write. On the other hand, I've seen homeschooled children who were years beyond their age in education.
So as I said, I support the parents' rights, but at the same time, I urge any parents considering homeschooling to insure that their children are being educated adequately.1
I'm not against but homeschool lacks socialisation of the kid. I think it's important for child development.1

Teachers go through a lot of training in how to get the best out of their students to prepare them for life. If parents are able to replicate that while also preparing their children to interact with everyone else, then fine. If they cannot then it should be left to the professionals.1
As long as they socialize in other ways it's fine.1
