Our Childrens Future The editorial by David Gergen editor at large titled No Place Like Home examines home schooling and high scoring of students Gerger was bias in his presentation stating that home schooling is better than the public school systems He assumes that home schooled children are brighter and have a more successful life after school than those that are in public schools His editorial was agreeable to a certain point but there were many problems that will effect the home schooling that were not brought into the discussion such as social contact uneducated parents and higher academic scholarships Mr Gregen discusses home schooling but gives a perception that every child within this system will be very intelligent and have a great future when they graduate These students have outstanding and above average in their median scores This phenomenon needs further examination Educators do not have enough data to draw conclusions to determine how much better home schooling is than the public school systems He also concludes that classrooms are not small enough for students to have individual attention I will agree with Mr Gergen on the high scores When searching for information on home schools I discovered that in 1998 the University of Maryland conducted a survey that revealed 20000 students in home schools scored 85th percentile in math and up to 85th percentile in reading Washington Times US News and World Report Children in home schools also have an individual relationship with their teacher-parent Public schools today are over crowded and the teachers are under paid They can not spend time with each student as needed Parents are willing to spend all of their time and energy to educate their children Therefore the child gets all of the attention and help that is needed to succeed in their education Mr Gergen also stated that our home schools need further experimenting and evaluation The kids of today are our future
