#1109 What do you think of homeschooling?
Hi, my name is Chris. I'm from the US and my question is what do I think of home schooling?
Well, I think home schooling has some advantages and disadvantages. It's probably a good option for some people especially if you live in a really remote area or if you have parents that are willing to commit to helping you complete home schooling.
However, I've heard some criticisms that people who go to home school might have difficulties later in life socializing with people because part of the process of going to public school is not only to learn content but also to learn how to interact and socialize and make friends and do all those other kinds of things.
So if you're home schooled it might be a little bit more difficult with regards to that but on the other hand a lot of people have done it successfully and in the United States it's legal. I think there are different kinds of regulations depending on the state you live in but I think it's a good option for some people.
