Hannah Clark Professor Kurk English 1301.09 December 1, 2014 Repercussions of Homeschooling (revised) The number of children being homeschooled has grown in recent years. Many people erroneously believe that there will be repercussions if they homeschool their children, but there aren’t any. From K-9th grade, I was homeschooled along with my six other siblings. My freshman year, however, my parents chose to enroll me in public school. Homeschooling has proven an educational option, which has yielded great results for many families.

Attitude, Legislation, and Litigation The education of students with disabilities has changed drastically over the years. Twenty years ago, classrooms were nearly devoid of exceptional students; and if any were to be enrolled in the school, they were sent in a class merely to be looked after. However, in today’s classroom, students with disabilities are highly valued and recognized by legislation as individuals worthy of fair instruction, where they can be acquainted with society and taught how to function successfully on their own. Teachers country-wide are expected to do everything thing in their power to fill the needs of each individual student in their classroom. Schools have implemented IEPs and RtIs to assure parents that their children are receiving adequate attention in their schooling.
Common Behaviors in Young Children Three of the most common behaviors in young children that the teacher might consider for modification or replacement include: Talking to friends or doing activities when the teacher is asking to pay attention. The student neglects this request for attention and directs his actions towards other activities that he knows will be observed by the teacher, this is a form of requesting attention
All for their child’s best intentions or to possibly avoid that “empty nest” feeling they first get when sending their five year old into the big unpredictable world. So why choose public school? The place that will take your child away from you for eight hours a day, leave them vulnerable, and eventually lead them into adulthood. There are many benefits to public school like the academics provided, the social life, the diversity of people and teachers, and the many opportunities that homeschooling cannot provide. Teaching your child is probably an amazing experience and by doing so you give your child more independence academically, but almost anyone can teach home school.
Homeschool versus Public Education Homeschool or public school has been a big debate for years. Which one is better? There are a lot of facts to consider about both when making that decision. Homeschool gives children more one on one time to work on areas that are tougher than others. On the other hand public schools give children the opportunity to be around other children which in the end will help with their social skills.
The administration of my school work with the community partners to develop a climate that is welcoming to families and students. They acknowledge that our students have varying academic and nonacademic needs and try to connect students to supports that meet those needs. Support for family and community involvement begins with school administrators. Their willingness to recruit parents and community members for school tasks, to listen to other people's viewpoints, and to share decision making provides a necessary foundation for all school-family-community partnerships. Our principal is very supportive
Why is play with siblings and peers important for children’s development? Complementary interactions or interactions with parents, teachers or caregivers are different to that of interactions with siblings and peers. According to Schaffer (2003), “the main function is to provide children with security and protection and enable them to gain knowledge and protection and acquire skills”. Interactions with others are referred to as reciprocal processes, where there is interaction between individuals that have “similar knowledge and social power”. This is usually seen between friends of the same age, by way of learning things from the way they interact with one another helping them to “acquire skills that can only be learned among equals, such as those involving co-operation and competition” (Shaffer, 2003, p113).
Parenting Practice Over Generations Every parent has their own techniques on how they raise their family to be well-rounded human beings and adults. A family teaches their youth how to act, and behave – they provide the child a stability. Every generation from 50 years ago to now, the way children are raised has changed drastically. Children used to be raised with discipline and high family values and standards. But now children are being raised by technology, less family orientations, and more lectures versus physical discipline.
Unlike schools in other countries, schools in the United States are part of an umbrella group, the U.S. Department of Education. Almost all children born in the united stated complete school through their eighth grade year, seventy-five percent complete high school, and forty-five enter post-secondary education (Baker and Stevenson 156). Schools in America are not structured around fixed future possibilities for students, but rather by student management. Students often have the option of choosing their own courses instead of being placed in a career path by a standardized test. Being given this opportunity, parents with a higher education are more likely to pressure their child into or select college-preparatory courses for their child, regardless of his academic performance (Baker and Stevenson 160).
