Here are some interesting reasons given by  Abrar al Haq, a young Bradfordian.

Ten reasons in favour of public schooling

1. Children who receive a one-on-one home education will learn more than others, giving them an unfair advantage in the marketplace—this is undemocratic.

2. Most parents were educated in the under-funded public school system, and so are not smart enough to home educate their own children.

3. How can children learn to defend themselves unless they have to fight off bullies on a daily basis?

4. Ridicule from other children is important to the socialization process.

5. Children in public schools can get more practice “Saying No” to drugs, cigarettes and alcohol.

6. Fluorescent lighting may have significant health benefits.

7. Publicly asking permission to go to the bathroom teaches young people their place in society.

8. The fashion industry depends upon the peer pressure that only public schools can generate.

9. Public schools foster cultural literacy, passing on important traditions like the singing of “Jingle Bells, Batman smells, Robin laid an egg...”

10. Home educated children may not learn important office career skills, like how to sit still for six hours continuously.

Auzubillahi minash shaitan ir rajeem,

Bismillah ie rahman ir rahim,

AGAINST SCHOOL

I taught for thirty years in some of the worst schools in Manhattan, and in some of the best, and during that time I became an expert in boredom. Boredom was everywhere in my world, and if you asked the kids, as I often did, why they felt so bored, they always gave the same answers: They said the work was stupid, that it made no sense, that they already knew it. They said they wanted to be doing something real, not just sitting around. They said teachers didn't seem to know much about their subjects and clearly weren't interested in learning more. And the kids were right: their teachers were every bit as bored as they were....

I learnt about this school teacher from NewYork - his talks and lectures .... it all makes sense.

With Karate like.. the Karate Kid did back in the 80s..

Nope.. it isnt.. ridicule leads some children to take matters into their own hands - I.E. Weapons....

I know plenty of home school children who dont do drugs.. infact goign to school will give them peer pressure, and thus pressuring them into actually trying the drugs.. WRong

Shouldnt we be teaching the children to be confident?... wouldnt you want your child to be a leader? We are not Communists Here... And if you're talking about manners - thats laughable too.. dont you think Children will pick up on manners from their parents?.. Public Schools are the WORST

IT also depends on Celebrity Endorsements..

so.. do you think parents at home might not sing that to their children at times?.. Its not like home schooled kids are going to be in a prison in the house.. i'm sure they cna go outside and play with the nieghboorhood children... or their Religiouse/community centers...  Children will always interact and such etc.. Have friends... THey figure out that Robin Laid an Egg and Joker Got away - form them no doubt.. or whatever.. this whole Idea is rediculouse me thinks..
