edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Homeschooling:

  1. Check in regularly to help with consensus opinions on topics under discussion.
  2. Find related free-license images: children learning at home, samples of books, educators, etc.
  3. Research home education resources for legality, statistics, motivations, etc. for specific countries. Start with the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand.
  4. Various clean-up related tasks:
    1. Bypass "what links here" redirects.
  5. Discussion at talk page on if we want a section of (famous) homeschoolers, in what form the section should be, and under what conditions someone classifies or is to be left out.
  6. Facilitate the addition of "criticisms" of Public School on specified wiki page to add balance. (Please remove this item on your to-do list to indicate bias against homeschooling on this wiki page … we’ll be watching!).

per countryEdit

The per country overview does not differentiate between homeschooling as a fundamental right, or school-systems that are willing to make exceptions when properly supervised for e.g. children in isolated areas or with parents with travelling professions (e.g. shipping). Even in countries that oppose homeschooling as a fundamental principle, it is realised that boarding school in such cases is often the lesser option, separating parents and children for extended periods (strangely, in most countries where homeschooling is popular, so are boarding schools) 88.159.65.111 (talk) 11:27, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

I just cut this outEdit

  • "However, studies have found that 98% of students participated in 2 or more activities outside the home."

I looked at the "Socialization" section and there was no mention of these studies. One can not write about studies, give their results and then not reference them. And frankly, I find, "activities outside the home" to be a little vague. That could include "grocery shopping" and "going on family vacations" for all we know. I am pretty sure that "attending church" would be one such activity. Carptrash (talk) 16:47, 1 February 2018 (UTC)
