In these next few paragraphs, we’ll try very hard to be objective about the pros and cons of different educational settings, including public school, private school and homeschool.
If you think homeschooling might be right for you, THSC is here to support that choice with resources such as our free Home Educator Quarterly magazine, our Home Educator Express monthly email, and our free online homeschool group locator.
Despite the many improvements and new options, THSC still believes that the best education is the original model: children learning from loving parents.
Even so, homeschooling may not always be for everyone.
School shootings are statistically unlikely, but it still worries you.
In addition to those listed above, other relevant factors usually just depend on the school in question.
Public schools do not have a choice as to who may go there.
As a result you are accepted regardless of race, religion, immigrant status, disability, or behavior.
You are forced on a daily basis to deal with people who are different than you which makes for a more evolved, understanding, and compassionate community overall.
This IS NOT, AND CANNOT, be taught in private schools because they do not let "just anybody" in.
