In some countries many parents are interested in home schooling and the trend is gaining popularity. Do the advantages of this outweigh disadvantages?

Today, home schooling has been emerging as a new concept to facilitate children to study in the surrounding of homely atmosphere. Though this trend has been popular with the kids of celebrities and have been giving many positives, yet it might pose more detrimental aspects to the children of regular class of family.

Learning not at specific time in a day, with not having exact curriculum, need to accomplish the tasks in not given time period and finally cherishing spending more time at home are certain advantages of home schooling. This way of learning can maintain charm of learning in students and can be a better knowledgeable person. And in case, if the student has brighter calibre for grasping then he/she would go ahead for further learning rather than waiting for year to complete which makes student more learned; Rabindranath Tagore, a Nobel laureate, has been one such example of a student of home schooling, who has translated Shakespeare's Macbeth at the age of 14 in Bengali language. However, such successful examples have been scarce.

Nevertheless, studying at home without any school pals sometimes might impact home schooling negatively, while through imitating others' approaches at school; some students start copying in learning. Moreover, students are offered designed curriculum, many variety of subjects, time for playing during sports lecture, all these are worth attending. Because every time students cannot make parents understand about their problems or sometimes they might have been in the state of confusion. Furthermore, there have been chances in home schooling about the task might not be achieved in time in case student is weak. And at last, reputation of attending school is likely more, as student can learn discipline, adaptability, etc. more in regular school rather than in home schooling.

Thus, home schooling has positive impacts only when students with having some outclass calibre while regular schooling has been more productive for the rest of the students as such schools have been professional and very well designed with guiding versatile systematic approach. which can have an edge over home schooling.
