Yes. I would advise any parent considering using home based education that they owe it to themselves and their children to give it a try. It will change both of your lives.

If parents have a choice, a home based education is wonderful. The parent can capitalize on each child's strengths and work closely to overcome weaknesses

Yes I would because I feel that home based students have more freedom to learn what they want. They can pace themselves and move onto another subject when they are ready for it without having to wait on other students. I think that most home based students are encouraged more academically and they are more motivated.

Home based schooling truly lends students to experience a different way of learning. Some students thrive under this different and unique way of learning. Students are able to learn at their own speeds and to pursue different activities in their free time. People may assume that home based students don't have the same social interactions as a normal high school teen. This is untrue! Students like me are able to make friends from clubs and groups. This way of teaching and learning is an amazing way that all students must try.

I'm not sure whether this question is asking me if I want to continue being home schooled, or whether I would recommend it to others, so I will answer both questions. Regarding the first, absolutely. I have spent time in both public and private education, and attest that for a mentally active student neither system provided sufficient stimulation. Both systems suppressed critical thinking, encouraged immaturity, and shunned meritocracy, and as such I cannot abide them. As for recommending home schooling to another, I recommend it to only those whom it would suit, as per the templates provided in my previous question. A completely average student with average ambitions as nothing to gain by it, unless his/her parent is capable of helping elevate them above their mediocrity. It is a hard system to recommend broadly, because it is certainly not the best choice for everyone, but for those whom it is suited to, it is capable of preforming wonders.

Yes because it completely changed my life when I switched from public school to homeschooling. I was very unhappy in public school emotionally, socially, and educationally. When I did school at home, I got to help choose my education, and I was in an environment that was conducive to my overall well-being.

I would recommend being a home based student. Home school relieves a lot that public school brings, such as the social aspect of school. You can choose how to spend your time and how your education is structured. And despite the stereotype, you won't be short on friends. You can find many other home schoolers in your area, and do extracurricular activities, such as sports, theater, and outside classes.

I would highly recommend homeschooling. I have had opportunities that would not have been available to me at the private school I attended previously. I have been able to take online pre-college classes with the Academy of Art. These classes have challenged me and given me the opportunity to increase my artistic ability and knowledge. I am able to be in an online classroom with other students from across the globe!

Yes I would recommend attending home based education simply because it gives on the fleibility to choose what they desire to learn and at the speed they need to learn it.

I would recommend being home-schooled, because it gives you the opportunity to become responsible and learn how to be diligent in your work. You do not have a teacher standing over you, telling you what to do. If you are like me, and do your school on the computer, you are the primary driver in your education. You have to do the work, make sure it gets turned in on time, and make sure you understand it. This helps prepare you to succeed in college, but home-schooling is not for the slackers. It is also relatively free from drama and peer pressure, although you should be prepared to be lonely sometimes, since there are not a whole lot of social options. It is a great way to learn to become independent, learn to think for yourself, and it prepares you for college, but you must be willing to give 100%.

I have greatly enjoyed being Home schooled (or attending Home Based) and would definitely recommend it. It teaches students to manage their time, be independent, and also allows for extra activities. For example, I am currently in my 11th year of Classical piano, and homeschooling has allowed for me to actively pursue this passion. I am able to fold my practice time into my school-day. Finally, being Home Based allows curriculum's to be tailored in order to meet each students unique learning style.

Absolutely! Yes I would recommend being home schooled! A Home Based child has the leaser to work at their own pace. As a home schooler, you can work ahead or catch up as needed. You are able to do more extracurricular activities, and really focus on your strong points. It is also a great way for a parent or guardian to teach the child in ways that help them understand rather than just cramming them into a public school box where you have only one way to learn. I wholeheartedly stand with Home Based education.

I would absolutely recommend home education. Between the personal attention and overall positive community, it offers a wonderful learning environment.

I have been homeschooled my entire life, and I can definitely say that I recommend anyone trying it. Being homeschooled, I have had the opportunity to grow up, in a positive environment. I have been able to foster strong, nurturing relationships, with my family members, and my school curriculum is molded around me and what school books work, for my learning style.

Yes by homeschooling, my child has been able to learn more and devote more time to other interests such as music. She has also been able to volunteer in several community service projects.
