This paper presents a proposal to analyze the problem of home schooling and the arguments advanced in its favor. The paper examines the literature on the reasons for home schooling as well as the problems associated with this form of schooling. The paper briefly mentions the hypotheses of the proposed research.

From the Paper:

"Home schooling is the teaching of a child by the parents at home. Home schooling is legal in all states, though the degree of regulation varies. In New Jersey, a parent is legally bound to provide the local school a curriculum each year, and the superintendent has the authority to decides whether the education is equivalent to public or private school and the parent should be allowed to teach at home.
Students cannot play sports in the local school, but families can have their children evaluated by a public-school expert if they suspect a mental or physical handicap. In New Jersey, the state does not intervene further as regards the quality of home schooling, and the students do not receive a diploma. In Pennsylvania, on the other hand, parents must give a notarized statement to their school, keep a log of work, submit portfolios, have children evaluated yearly, and administer the standardized tests school students take. (McGrath, 1993)"
