'Rabindranath Tagore'; Children should be educated at home by their parents

Education, as we all know, is an integral part of our lives. Various countries have their own education systems and ways of teaching a child might differ. Children might go to educational institutions or might opt for home schooling. I personally don't favor the idea of home schooling.

Rabindranath Tagore once said,'Don't limit a child to your learning, for he was born in another time'. A child in his childhood, spends most of the time at school, where he learns a lot more than just his academic lessons. For instance, he learns sharing, making friends, co-operating with his peers, obeying, working as a group, taking up challenges, judging people, taking decisions, managing his time, managing money too. Until he is given a chance to involve himself in a multi-cultural environment, he might not be able to respect every culture and religion. A child might go on a trip and learn various things which he might not be able to learn staying at home. He will definitely not get a chance to perform various scientific experiments at home, which he for sure will have to take part in schools and colleges. He might be able to get bookish knowledge but in real world we need a lot more than just some factual information about various subjects.

Some people might argue that its safer for a child to study at home, but then, one day he has to step out and find out what the real world is like. He might not be able to tackle situations, mix up with people and thus, might lose confidence. Parents might also be able to provide them with the best faculty or teach them on their own but then, he would miss upon the knowledge, other students might obtain due to group discussions. He won't be able to take part in various competitions and might not be able to compare his abilities and hence improvise.He might follow the religion, his parents guide him to but, he might not be able to chose a path on his own. Every person has a limited knowledge and whatever a parent knows, he might be able to teach his child but the child will be negligent of other knowledgeable things and new developments around and of-course, the child will not be able to explore but become dependent on his parents.

I strongly believe that children should be sent to schools and colleges. 'Education is not preparation of life, it is life itself'. Parents should not keep their children at home, thinking they are safe indoors but instead, should send them to an educational institution whereby, they can develop various characteristics and enhance their knowledge by sharing.

Please correct me as m practicing for toefl exam.
Parents are the first teacher of a child because they teach the most basic and initial lessons of life to their kid . Every child has his own ability to learn and to adopt things and so do the parents. Though each system of schooling , either home schooling or regular schooling has its pros and cons, I personally prefer regular schooling i.e. children should be educated at school.

As we human beings are social animals, we need company .we are more comfortable in a company rather than a secluded one. School gives us that facility .It exposes us to different students and different cultures even . As I mentioned earlier, every kid has his own line of thinking .Kids can understand various aspects for a thing .Similarly he can learn different views to look at a thing.The best example is of a half filled glass.If it is shown to students and ask them to share their observations.Few of them can observe its half filled and others can seen it is half empty.That means though object is one, different aspects are there to see it and regular schooling helps to inculcate it in kids.

"Life itself is the best teacher than any school" is the well known saying.School is the outer world for a kid and his home is his own world.By stepping into outer world .Kids can learn many things such as how to get acquainted with other kids and new environment of school .They can learn to get mingle with other kids .They can learn to make friends . They can learn to get adjusted with schedule of school i.e.time management and so on.

Schooling helps kids to learn socialism and other important lessons by going to school .These lessons helps kids to grow as an individual and to survive in this world as a successful person so I support children should be educated at school rather than home schooling.
