Homeschool in India, A step towards qualitative Parental Involvement in Education
Deeply rooted in the Indian culture the concept of homeschooling is not new to the Indian schooling scenario. Long ago parents did send their children to gurukuls to obtain all-round education that did not just give them degrees but actually taught them life skills and increased their quality of life. Times changed and so did the educational setup.
Modern-day schools offer opportunities galore for students and aid them in achieving high academic targets but gen Y kids deserve much more in the modern-day learning scenario and thereby springs the idea of Home-schooling.
Homeschool in India or home-based learning is a progressive movement that provides an appropriate setup for kids to learn within the comforts of their homes and under the able guidance of their parents or guardians.
This step forward in the realm of education:
* reduces the educational burden on students and allows them to choose subjects of their choice
*it encourages self-paced learning and reduces the need for children to fit into that typical student mode
*allows children to pursue other religious interests as well as sports and extracurricular activities
*provides children with a stress-free learning environment and kindles their natural curiosity in their desired field of learning
*enables parents to inculcate value sets that they desire kids to possess
*provides an opportunity to make learning exciting through innovative learning ideas
*strengthens the bond between parents and children and ensures more quality time together
*ensures that child learning is not affected even in dire circumstances such as the Covid 19 Pandemic!
However as much as parents today would love to introduce their kids to this new learning, they are filled with a number of what-ifs such as:
1. What if due to my busy schedule I am unable to devote complete time to my child and his learning?
2. What if my child is unable to develop interpersonal skills because of low social interaction as compared to traditional schooling.
3. What about the study material and resources that I will need to teach my child.
4. How will I maintain my level of patience while teaching my child
5. What certification will my child get if he is home-schooled and how will I enroll him in colleges for further studies?
