Essay on education

Although most people would generally agree that a state educational system is the most suitable for young children ,there is a grater number of people in America who prefer to educate their kids at home.This is known as homeschooling.

The reason that most parents choose homeschooling is because their kids feel free and confident because they are familiar with their home environment.Also they have the opportunity to have independence thinking and get respect for their parents as teachers.Spending time together they increase their relationship.It is said that schooled students demonstrate excellent academic progress comparing with the others in public schools.

Nevertheless homeschooling has some negative factors to consider.For example some students have serious problems socialising.At home they do not have the chance to communicate and cooperate with other kids in their age.So they do not learn to work in a team.And a problem that most home educated students face is 'nostalgia' for the school environment and maybe feel jealous of the other children.

Despite what many people say,I believe that home schooling is not the best solution for children's education because they feel independent at school and meet lots of friends.That's the main factor that most countries prefer this system.So I would strongly recommend the school environment.

The Project

And finally after a long and tiring day, Tina was able to take a rest on the couch. She had fortunately managed to finish all her projects and now all she really wanted was just to watch her favourite programme in TV.

However, she was so tired that she fell asleep in a minute just as the programme on TV started.Suddenly, she woke up in a huge royal bed. She was wearing a long linen dress and so she thought that it had to be summer. She then looked at herself in the mirror and released that she was a queen! The queen which her project at school referred to. She then heard someone speaking to her :

'Good morning my queen! Is there something I can do for you?' wondered the young slave
'Yes! Call my husband at once.' Tina heard herself demanding
'I'm afraid that the great king is in the battle at the moment.' whispered the slave
'OK! Then leave me alone!'

Tina was very surprised by all these things.She sat in a chair wondering how she had got there,when suddenly she heard the slave screaming. The enemy had reached the castle and soldiers were coming to kill her!

As the soldiers went for her, Tina woke up shaking with fear on the couch while her favourite programme was still playing. She laughed and thought that it was only a dream and that she was affected by her project. It had brought history to life for Tina in a really exciting way.
