Some people believe that teaching children at home is best for a child’s development while others think that it is important for children to go to school. Discuss the advantages of both methods and give your own opinion.

The argument over whether learning at
home
or at
school
is better for children has not been settled yet. Whereas
home
education offers better protection with individual learning and opportunities for families to bond, schools have a superior range of material and human resources. Ultimately, I think the
school
experience is best for children. There are several advantages for children who learn at
home
.
Firstly
, they can spend more time with their parents and siblings. Many social problems are associated with families not spending enough quality time together. Teaching children at
home
also provides

them with an individualised learning environment. Instruction is

and moves at the child’s own pace and in accordance with his or her individual learning style.
Finally
,
home
schooling protects children from bullies and others who might be a bad influence.
On the other hand
, the
school
environment
also
offers advantages for children. Schools encourage children to socialise with their peers and learn how to cope with gossip, bullying and peer pressure.
In addition
, children will receive better tuition across a range of disciplines, as schools have teachers who are trained in special subjects. What is more, schools provide better access to physical resources
such
as sports equipment, musical instruments and library books. I believe that children are better off in a
school
environment.
Although
family time and individual learning are important, the range of expertise and resources that schools offer cannot be matched in the
home
.
School
environments may present difficult social situations, but so too does the real world and children must learn to navigate these on their own.
