Should schoolchildren be allowed to choose whether to attend school or not?

There are many reasons why we should let children choose to go to school or not. There are many points to make either way.


  • Children not attending school would benefit them by giving them time to learn about things that interest them which most likely they would use that knowledge for their future job
  • The government would spend less on schools and we would have to pay less taxes or the government would put more money in health care and other important things
  • Children that get bullied at school wouldn’t by choosing to stay home
  • They wouldn’t waste their time learning about art and geology but they would learn about subjects that are need to have important general job skills
  • The education system teaches children to have fixed jobs and salaries rather than becoming entrepreneurs or innovators
  • Parents would have a better influence in their child’s education


  • Children would waste their time instead of learning and end up unsuccessful in the future
  • Many teachers would lose their jobs in result of kids learning at home instead of school
  • Children would have fewer opportunities to socialize
  • They could end up lost in the world without any mental preparation that the schools give
  • It could influence society in a long-term very badly by making this world less civilized
