Perception of Teachers on Homeschooling

Tejal Parab | Dr. Nitin P. Khanvilkar

Abstract: To study the perception of teachers about Homeschooling by understanding the concept of homeschooling and the teachers those are going to be part of the process. The concept of Homeschooling is discussed and the perceptions of the teachers are taken into consideration. The teachers involved are in-service teachers and pre-service teachers. Survey method is used to collect information about the perceptions of 56 entry-level pre-service teachers, 36 exit-level pre service teachers and 56 in-service teachers. The questionnaire is bifurcated in three parts dealing with perception about traditional schooling, perception about homeschooling and comparison between the two. The conclusion drawn out of the observation is that the participants have only heard the concept of homeschooling but do not know what it exactly is. The differences in the responses of the entry-level and exit-level pre-service teachers exist because of the exposure that the exit-level pre-service teachers receive in the process of their long duration of internships in regular schools. The in-service teachers may be expecting a change in the regular education system to be more conducive to the current changing trends in the world around.
