Choices
Scarlett, Age 12, Easton, CT

Be with people? Or be alone? Home schooled? Or go to a public school? If you were to pick which one, what would you decide? If I had a choice then I would pick to go to a public school. There are many reasons for that choice, some reasons are people to talk to, you won't feel weird because your parents won't be teaching you, and you have something to look forward to because you have to travel to get there. Keep reading to understand why I think public school is better than being home schooled.

Public school is better because you will have people to talk to in class. You can also make friends and be social. When you're home schooled you can't socialize and make new friends. Plus making friends is very important in a kid's life, whether you're home schooled or not. That's a reason why I would to go to a public school.

Secondly, I think that public school is better because you won't feel weird, because your parent isn't teaching you. Because when you are home schooled your parent teaches you and you will be able to say more what you feel instead of keeping it in because you're scared your parent might think: "what are you talking about?" Plus the teacher may know more than your parent does, because they have been teaching that grade/subject for a long time, or longer than your parent has been teaching it. Those are the reasons why I would rather go to a public school instead of being home schooled.

Thirdly, you will have something to look forward to every morning you have school. I think that because you have to travel to get there, like take the bus, have your parent drive you there, or even walk there. That's better than just having to walk downstairs or down the hall. Plus it will make public school more exciting. That's the last reason why I think public school is better than being home schooled.

Those are all my reasons to why I answered the question like that. Kids need a social life, have other people besides their parents be their teachers, and have something to look forward to every day they have school. That is why I believe public school is better than being home schooled. Now think about that question again, if you could pick which one would you go to?
