My topic is Cyber vs Public school, I will be debating the fact that cyber school is just as good as public if not better. Sometimes cyber schools are the only opinion because of military families, bullying, and learning disabilities. One of the positives are homeschooled kid can easily make the transition to cyber school. Some parents would like to homeschool their children, but they are not teachers, aren’t sure where to start or how to do it, or aren’t terribly structured or organized themselves. Doing a cyber program might help these parents to homeschool more easily. Students can learn in their own time, around work, activities, appointments, or other responsibilities. Cyberschool may be the best or only option in these instances – but then again, most students don’t end up staying in cyber school because of the low graduation rate. For students, learning to balance school, activities, family, and a social life is a critical life skill, and allowing your child to go through a traditional school environment can perhaps give him or her a false sense of what things are going to be like as an adult. Many adults, most of whom attended a regular school program, tend to struggle with work/life balance, so getting more practice with this while growing up can be very important. If it’s necessary for your whole family to move around this often, cyberschool may be your only option at having some continuity in your child’s education. If a child has a learning disability, the cyber school they are taking classes at are required to offer extra help and support to help him or her to succeed. Avoiding this, or giving up too easily sets your child up not to be challenged, which is a mistake in terms of helping your child to get the best education possible. Having your child work at home through a cyber program may also make things more difficult, taking away necessary structure and opportunities for assistance.
