    I just let her go to private Indonesian school and on the evenings I give her some homeschooling with topics that are more English. It's time consuming and painful; she does not understand much Indonesian. I wish you the best!

    It is very difficult to communicate in online class so I think it will be better to attend school because in the case of offline classes there is face to face interaction between teachers and students so the students can get more courage and also teachers can give them more attention. But in online classes the interaction can be both simultaneous and asynchronous. A child needs an educational environment to grow up and develop. School is definitely the best place where a child can learn new things and grow in various field.

    I put my son in a preschool when he was three, but I wanted him to have an English-language education. We returned to Indonesia when he was in high school and put him in the online Abeka International School program. I did not care for that particular program. Too much P, and a lot of wasted time watching other kids read on the old videos. I think a more 'asynchronous' program that has video but doesn't make it as core to the learning experience would have been better.
    She is 12 years old as of now. I'd think simply watching videos would be a bit too boring too, and she's quite studious so she'd probably also like an asynchronous program. I think I should look for one. Thanks a lot

    I found traditional public education very inefficient , but online education may also be inefficient and kids may miss the social interaction with their colleagues .

    Once I attended a traditional private school that teached 3 years of public school's curriculum in just one year (and with better results) due to better teachers and methods .

    You will certainly find a lot of opinions by searching the internet for something like : traditional or online school , what to choose

    My idea is that future education should be phisical schools for some subjects like sports , teachers' consultation , social events , national exams ,.. but the most of the learning should be at home or school by reading books and watching videos (maybe in DVDs) where the government would select the best teachers in the country and record videos of their teaching to distribute to all schools' library of the country .




    I guess there are (in big cities) not so expensive and not so bad private scholls too .
    Thank you for your response, and yeah socialising was a big issue as well, but I think it would be okay if I am able to look for ways and means to nudge them towards interacting with neighbours or some of my friends' kids. 

    I 100% agree with what you think of future education because physical education is vital, but honing the Independent learners within children is the best possible route with assistance from teachers.

    I'm a mother of one, and I was wondering whether or not I should put my child on online school or make her go onto a local Indonesian school. I'm unsure of the idea of sending her to school because local Indonesian schools are out of the question, but the private International schools are way too pricey for us.?

    I was researching about online schools and they look pretty promising, but I'm not sure of whether or not to do it? Seems a bit risky, what do you guys think?
