Exploring The Importance Of Recess

5 Benefits Of Public Education

If your child will soon hit school age, you'll need to start exploring educational options. There are so many schooling choices available! You may want to stick with the most traditional schooling choice, due to its many benefits. Public education is a popular choice for many children and parents all over the country. Keep reading to see what the main benefits of public education are: 

It's a Low-Cost Choice

If you're already struggling to handle everyday living expenses, you may not have the funds to pay for private education. The good news is that public education is a great, low-cost choice. Except for taxes and basic school supplies, public education is free. This makes learning less stressful. 

It's Nearby

When it comes to public education, most students need to enroll in a school right near their home. This can make getting to and from school so much easier and makes for less stress for parents.

Be Surrounded By a Mix of Students

When your child goes to public school, they will be able to interact with so many different people. This is the perfect introduction to the real world. They can get to know many children who may have a different upbringing and different views than they're used to. 

Educators Are Certified

With public education, there are certain rules and requirements in place. Teachers must have certain certification and experience in order to be able to teach. When you enroll your child in a private school, the school may be a lot more lax. You want your child learning from the very best and from teachers who are experienced. 

There Is a Set Curriculum

If you want your child to be fully prepared for their future educational needs and goals, starting with public school can be a great option. Public schools have a set curriculum in place so you know your child is learning what they will be tested on later on down the road. 

Fit in With Peers

For some students, going down a less traditional educational path can be stressful. They may crave a more normal learning experience and may want to fit in with their peers more. Going to a public school system is a good way to give your child a more normal learning experience. 

There are many benefits that come with public education. This can be a great option for your child's educational years. Reach out to your local public school to learn more or to enroll your child for class. 

About Me

Exploring The Importance Of Recess

Hey everyone, my name is Greg Butchers. I would like to explore the importance of recess and play breaks during the elementary school day. There is a lot of talk about eliminating recess to make time for other types of instruction. I firmly believe that children need unstructured playtime provided by breaks after lunch and throughout the day. The social skills learned during recess cannot be adequately replicated during class times. Kids also need to chance to stretch their legs to remain focused during structured lessons. Recess can help keep childhood obesity levels in check to keep kids healthy throughout life. I hope that I can convince others that recess is an important part of the education process. Thanks.
