Why do people turn to home-schooling?
Today's educational institutions and political policies towards them makes individuated attention to problematic, challenged, or special students especially difficult.
Because America is home to the world's most prestigious educational coalition, the Ivy League (comprised of Harvard, Yale, Dartmouth, Columbia, Brown, Princeton, and UPenn), the world turns to American attitudes towards in-class and campus atmosphere guidance. As such, American universities and schools become meaningful symbols of long-term social perspective.
America favors a democratic government and intellectual freedom and today's Information Age technologies make streamlining of publicly shared knowledge profitable. This gives American schools both a boon and an obligation to maintain temperance amidst the chaos of wide information availability.
In this climate, home-schooling may seem wise, prudent, and even easier, which is why American schools such as UPenn are beginning to cater to the individual student's desires for private information interpretation and user-friendly virtual disucssion. This trend has the potential to make the educational experience one of knowledge silver and dream-trading gold for each interested student.
Do these academic considerations reflect the neo-classical value of optimistic Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Educating Rita" (1983)?
