Essay

 I think there are some major problems with home schooling but most of them could be solved.
 The first major problem is that it may decrease interactions with other people however if parents teach children how to communicate and give them enough opportunities to interact with others it will not decrease their ability to communicate effectively.
 The second major problem is that children may get lonely and solitary. But they can spend more time with their family. And some research has shown that children who travel a lot with their family have higher scholastic ability than children who don’t spend much time with their family. Moreover, it is very important for children to get used to being alone to some extent at an early age because it helps children to cultivate their character and become more independent.
 The third major problem is that it may be doubtful that children acquire high scholastic ability with home schooling. But some American research has shown that children with home schooling have higher scholastic ability than children who don’t use home schooling.
 The last major problem is that Japan is not receptive to an individualistic way of thinking. I think this will be solved only by showing good examples of homeschoolers’ experiences to society.
 As I mentioned, there are some major problems with home schooling but most of them could be solved.
