Homeschooling's Great Student/Teacher Ratio

Unless you've set some ridiculous Guinness World Record, you don't 25 kids.

One of the benefits of homeschooling is its student/teacher ratio. Even the most prolific of parents have fewer children than exist in a typical classroom setting. Other advantages to the home setting are that they can be made free of the constant distractions and time consuming tasks such as attendance unrelated to learning that plague larger classes.

With more time for each student and more learning time in general, it can be much easier to create a focused learning environment without interruptions and distractions in a home school setting, so if your child faces the possibility of joining a public school with classes of 30 or more children, you might want to consider home schooling as a real and viable alternative.
