Children may progress faster in a homeschool setting than in public school. Schooling at home may promote a closer familiar relationship – many parents find that they enjoy spending extra time with their kids in homeschool. Public school options in the area may not offer the preferred degree of educational quality. Jul 19, 2019

Homeschooled kids aren't ready for the real world.

They will not be prepared for the real world. They won't get to experience mean teachers, mean kids, bullying, or any of those other things that get kids ready for life after high school.

It has been noticed that educational quality has been better in homeschooling than traditional schools. With more personal care and grooming, home-schooled kids tend to pick up things easier than in schools. They show more interest in studies, which are more customized than the routine-based courses in schools.

Homeschooling allows you to take all the time you need to ensure learning is taking place. Likewise, if your child is ready to move on, you do not need to waste time on redundant or repetitive lessons. Homeschooling children can move through educational materials at a faster pace than their peers.

Research suggests homeschooled children tend to do better on standardized tests, stick around longer in college, and do better once they're enrolled. A 2009 study showed that the proportion of homeschoolers who graduated from college was about 67%, while among public school students it was 59%.

Homeschoolers tend to come from higher earning and better educated families, which may account for the higher scores. Sampling is sometimes done to compare homeschoolers to public school students.

Some families choose to homeschool because their local public education system is lacking in areas they feel are important. Some families are unable to afford a private school setting. Religious beliefs and parents' desires to develop certain character qualities in their children also make the list. Jul 24, 2020

In fact, many colleges are intrigued by homeschoolers' applications because of all the unique experiences they get to have that traditional students rarely have time for. More homeschoolers travel, get to work real jobs, start internships early, and meet people from all walks of life because they have more time.

Studies have also shown that homeschooled students score considerably higher on average than public school students on the Piers-Harris Children's Self-Concept Scale, which measures socialization skills. This shows that, contrary to popular belief, homeschoolers are socially adjusted.Feb 16, 2015

We don’t have to rush out of the house early every morning. There are no long waits in the drop-off & pick-up lines or morning rush hour traffic to deal with. Our children are sick less often. When they are sick, we don’t need a doctor’s excuse or fret over unexcused absences. Our evenings aren’t spent on homework, projects, or other busy work. We can spend more time together as a family. We don’t have to bother our friends, neighbors, and loved ones with multiple fundraisers each year. We are in control of our schedule and don’t have to ask the school’s permission to take our own children on vacation. We don’t have to pack lunches. We know what our children are being taught each day and that they are learning. Bullies are rarely an issue.
