Homeschooling has been a method of teaching for some time, but people have misconceptions about how it works and how it affects children’s academic achievement. Research shows that homeschooled children do well in their academics despite a few negative aspects of homeschooling. Through literature review, through scholarly articles, interviews, and a survey, research reveals that homeschooling will continue to be on the rise. Thus, homeschooled children tend to score higher or similar compared to regular children attending public schools. Children become more responsible for themselves, and have control of their education. Homeschooling is an alternative to education for children who do not adjust well. While homeschooling allows students to focus only on what is important to them, it makes learning more enjoyable, since they are learning at their own pace, and at the same time affects their academic achievement in many ways.
