-----------------------
MAJOR POINT #1

Studies show that home schooling created a more relaxed and calm environment, and children were more attentive and focused.

MAJOR POINT #2

Home schooling allows religious freedom, something that is not allowed in public schools. Children are able to worship with their families without fear of persecution

MAJOR POINT #3

Bullying, peer pressure and stress are leading causes of suicides among public school students. Home schooled children are protected to a degree from those types of pressures.

Home school classrooms can be tailored to fit the children attending. Smaller class size gives more one on one attention and children are more relaxed and acceptable of learning. The studies can be as active or laid back as the student/teacher dynamic sees fit and every situation and study can be altered to make it exciting to learn. Deviation from the norm is usually not available in the public school system, where there are several kids per class.

    The purpose of this project is to determine the fastest computer operating system for solving mathematical equations. Which operating system, Windows 7 or Ubuntu Linux, performs the best when it comes to pure number crunching? In order to test this question, the researcher ran a Java based application that benchmarks the ability of each operating system to perform a mathematical operation across three different data types and a second, more complex, mathematical operation. The Java based application, Java Micro Benchmark, performs each mathematical operation eight times per test and the researcher ran the test five times for each operating system. The mathematical operations testsed by Java Micro Benchmark are integer arithmetic, long integer arithmetic, double-precision floating point arithmetic and trigonometric arithmetic. This method gave the researcher data for forty tests per mathematical operation for each operating system. The resulting data is then compared to determine which operating system is able to process mathematical operations the fastest.…

Telling an acid from a base is very important in the world from people that may have a pool in their backyard to those who are chemists and need that information to balance chemical equations. With simple experiments, one can tell if the solution they have is a base or an acid.…

    I believe the focus in Susan Garland’s paper “The ABCs of Homeschooling,” is directed more to the pro side, leading you to believe that you get more out of homeschooling than regular school. She argues that the popularity of homeschooling has grown along with the availability of online material to accommodate those looking to get an education outside of the classroom. Garland argues that homeschooling has its con sides such as: More likely to get into trouble due to less monitoring, eventually get on each other’s nerves, become socially inexperienced, and the need for proof with any and all of your studies. However, even with all the cons homeschooling presents Garland has shown how it is effective and a great benefit for those who may need…

    Homeschooling is a method of teaching that has grown within the past decade. It has been reported, “In 1999 the percentage of school-age children who were being homeschooled increased from 1.7 percent to 2.9 percent in 2007” (National Center for Education Statistics). Deciding to home school your child can be a rewarding experience.

    As everyone knows that public schools are stressful places which have a lot of homework and exams, but home schooling could protect children from these stressful. Mentioning the students in public high school, a picture may occur to people that having lots of assignments and cycling between school and home with a heavy bag on shoulders, especially for someone who will joins the college entrance examination. Also, children still face many exams; including midterm, final and some occasionally tests in class. It will make children loss their enthusiasm for studying.

    Homeschooling is not for every child, some students learn better in a group environment where they learn the social skills necessary to succeed academically. Just because one thing is good for a certain child does not mean it is beneficial to another. All children have different learning styles specific to their personality. Some children need one-on-one attention to be able to comprehend academics to the best of their ability, and other students can learn in a group. It all depends on the child which education is best for them. “Learn how your children are being tested for their values instead of their knowledge.”(p647)…

    A lot of people choose homeschooling over public school because they belive that kids could get a better education homeschooled than at public school. In a public school, students have to learn at the speed of the other students in the class, not by how much they learn. This slows down how fast the student learns. But in homeschooling, it is a one on one education, where the speed of the subject is based on the individual student, not he whole class. Based on a study by the National Home Education Research Institute, it shows that students that are homeschooled graduate college at a higher rate of 66.7% compared to public school student who graduate at a rate of 57.5%.…

    The cons of home schooling outweigh what some people believe as a benefit. One being that the parent is not a professional teacher such as English or music class. The parent does not have the technique in giving their child a quality and prolific education. Another con is the student is not being exposed to a diverse environment. The child is not able to grow with their peers and associate themselves with reality and what is out there on the streets that children have to deal with when they are in a…

    Homeschooling a child can offer many great things. One of the benefits of homeschooling is having a flexible schedule and having educational freedom. When a child is home schooled, they learn on their own time. Whether class begins at four in the morning or four in the evening, homeschooling gives the student the ability to learn at their own pace. Having educational freedom is also a benefit. There is freedom in choosing the curriculum rather than being restricted to only general studies that public schools offer. Another advantage of being home schooled is an increase in family time. Homeschooling gives a family the opportunity to grow closer together and to have more interaction with each other.(Kaitlyn_Deann, n.d.) At home, a child can get more work done in less time because there is no busy work. (Isabel Shaw, n.d.) Because a home schooled child works around their own schedule, they are much more rested and less stressed to complete assignments with a deadline. A child that works at their own pace has less stress which leads to better grades.…

    First, students will have too much educational freedom. When you are a homeschooler you can decide to focus on certain subjects more than others. There is a bigger chance you will struggle in one subject because you are more interest in another. Homeschoolers are not restricted to a time limit that focuses them to move from one subject to another. That can make it difficult for them in the future when they do have restrictions and deadlines they need to stick by. If a student has too much freedom, because the curriculum can be swayed, they move at a slower pace (Benefits). Without having to be on a set schedule they will not learn to be organized and be prepared for deadlines. They will be used to things being easier for them because homeschool student are not being challenged with the same assignments and projects that public school student are. It is also very common their curriculum to shift to their family’s values and beliefs (Takahasi). They will not be learning about things in a general way like a public school student would be.…
