The Idea of Homeschooling

= parent-led home-based education
- old tradition from United States

- alternative to public school
> fastest-growing form of education in the U.S.

what is meant in practice

- in general parents/ teachers educate the child at home;
in small groups

- lessons are based on guidelines from public schools
Reasons & Motives
- families are not dependent on public, tax-
funded resources for their child's education

- "children would be estranged from the parents'
norms with "bad" consequences for their belief"

- to customize and individualize the child's

- safer environment because of physical
violence, drugs, psychological abuse
> protection against bad influences (peers)

- to enhance family relationships between
children and parents

Legal Situation
- home-schooling is legal in many countries...
- ...but outlawed in others

...in Germany
- compulsory school attendance
- Basic Law: "entire school system under state's supervision"

- assumption that “the parents’ natural right to educate their children
should not be forbidden”
> parents’ philosophy of life gets lost
> conflict between compulsory school attendance and parental right
... Regulation in the U.S.

of social advantages of school:
- interaction with students the same age
- group projects and team work

in a pluralist society

regarding the child's future

Norms and values

Prevent social neglect
Different Forms of Religious Education & Schools

Islamic Education
Buddhist Education
unrealistic illusions
though: imparting of values a religion includes might be beneficial

people feel limited and set under pressure
Many different forms of religious education
secular concept of religion vs. religious law
People in favor of RE: Guidance and security
People against RE: Influence and pressure
Balance between strict religious education and non religious education
Religion is a form of education (socialization, creating an identity, imparting of values)
Academic education is beneficial and important opinions about religious education differ
