I am home schooled and i was wondering what other people think about it.
There are many ways to teach children by homeschooling them, and there are many ways to teach them in schools. I think the differences within each category dwarf the differences between the categories.
My personal experience of homeschooling is limited, and way too subjective to mean anything scientifically. It comes from times in my childhood when I was sick, classmates brought me our homework, and I figured out how to solve it, often with help from my mother. I found I learned better that way than I did in class.
My mother in turn, had a more extreme version of the same experience. One school year (I think third grade) she was sick more days than not, so was primarily home-schooled by my grandmother. She came out way
ahead of her class.
So, from unscientific personal experience and my family folklore, I'm fairly sympathetic to homeschooling. The fact that it's unconstitutional in Germany is one of those needless authoritarian restrictions that made me apply for the American Green Card Lottery. And, who knows, maybe there will come a time when I'll be a stay at home dad homeschooling my own, yet-to-be-conceived kids. I imagine this to be both rewarding for myself and (sorry for bragging) a good education for them.
