Homeschooling- a new fashion or a return to the old traditions? The benefits of the traditional school are contest teachers and parents.

Breaks, desks, tough but fair teacher, best friends, classmates - can we do without these attributes of childhood? Even some ten - fifteen years ago, it seemed that there is no alternative, schooling was compulsory and wriggle out of classes managed a few. According to their own schedule studied small circus performers and athletes, actors and musicians, children of diplomats. All other regularly visited lessons.

Now the family education or homeschooling quickly came into vogue. Different people choose this method of education for their children - advanced vegans and yogis, deep religious opponents of mixed or secular teachingfreelancers are freestyle travelers, parents of children with profoundly disabilities and even the most ordinary mothers and fathers, who since childhood has deep aversion to the traditional school. Is it good or bad?
