Abstract
This argumentative essay discusses educational and future prospects of students whom chose homeschooling. Homeschooling has grown in appeal to students and parents for a well-established education. This paper explains how homeschooling focuses on a customized education towards the children. Moreover, how homeschooling provides further attention and a more stable teaching pace for parents to give the children, and the reduced cost of the homeschooling system. This paper additionally discusses the social risks a student may encounter in traditional schools with other students, increasing the threat of negative issues occurring to the student.
