I saw the article Home schooled children leaner than traditionally schooled kids and just had to share and keep it.
It is just one study but it’s an important consideration. The impact of school on socialisation and health. The study makes clear these results came before the latest health standards were implemented at school but also makes clear the dependence you have on the school system when you’re kids are there.
It’s also important to remember that we haven’t heard the whole story
- What’s the range and regularity? These are averages
- How much leaner? I didn’t see any numbers.
- What was classed as traditional
I’m not ripping apart the study. Just something I think of regularly in any study. Every report you get is biased but the bias is always slightly different. You will never get the full story so it’s work thinking a little deeper.
An interesting question though.
