Apparently, the section of population that thinks that school is a place for children to learn good things about the social behaviour, have their own rationalisations. For example a child hardly gets time to interact their parents, as nowadays parents are quite busy if they are both bread earners for a family. This means school plays a greater role in the personal growth of a child, teaching them to be respectable members of a society. Moreover, it has been proven by various scientific research that children learn better when they have peer competition which can be provided in schools.
However, another school of thought assumes that the home is a place to start learning, as children spend most of their time at home with their siblings, parents or carers. They have a greater influence on the mental conditioning of a child. For example if a child’s father or mother is abusive at home, the child tends to be an abusive individual in a society as the home environment has a greater impact on the upbringing of a child.
In the end, after weighing up both sides of the argument , I certainly feel that learning starts from home. Parental guidance is extremely important in a better upbringing of a child for a fruitful future existence. For example my brother and his friend found five hundred rupees in a school playground; even after constant disagreement from his friend my brother returned the money to the school authority. This shows that even though both of them study in a same section of the school, family moral values play an important role in decision making. Thus, parents have the most important role in making children to be a good member of society.
