Abstract

As a new form of education, homeschooling can effectively promote the individual development of children and satisfy different groups by providing education with equal opportunities. Although it has a series of problems, such as legalization in China, the growing population still attracts extensive attention of the society. At present, most of the domestic researches in this field remain in the causes of formation, historical background and problem analysis, while having very little discussion on practical issues. The paper uses the literature research method and the comparative method to describe and analyze the history, laws and regulations, learning conditions, reasons for choosing homeschooling, and problems of homeschooling in China and America. Based on China’s national conditions, the paper refers to the advantages and disadvantages of American homeschooling, and proposes a specific implementation plan from the perspective of national legislation. By clarifying the status of homeschooling in the law and constructing a sound managing and guiding system, homeschooling in China can become more regularized and developed.
