can you review this for me? please
Public School to Home school
A lot of parents are concerned about their child’s education. Some people think that sending their children to public school is best, while others prefer homeschooling. I will mention the positive and negative points of both of them. Let’s start with public school.
First of all public school is free of charge witch is easier for parents who can’t afford to pay for their child’s education. Another good thing about public school is that most of them have professionally trained teachers. Also public schools are well disciplined and they give your child an opportunity to socialize and try out for sports while home schooling doesn’t.
Now I will mention some of the positive sides of home schooling your child. Mainly it is easier for the child and the parent to school at home. In addition if some parents can not manage to pay for home schooling a lot of them are free. Some parents complain that their child won’t get a good education if they are home schooled, but most children who are home schooled turn out with better results than kids who aren’t. Another thing is that a few religions have some restrictions such as the separation of the opposite gender, with home schooling your child can work at home and still get the education he or her needs to live a good life.
In conclusion I have skimmed through both of the different choices of schooling. Though I was not able to mention everything about them I have stated some of the main points of each one. Witch one is superior to the other will remain an opinion, but we can still give our opinions.

Be sure to spell "Witch" as "Which"
I don't see what you'd like us to do with this?

Your fact that most homeschooled children turn out with better results is pure nonsense. If you are going to say something as outlandish as that, you ought to submit some evidence for your facts...opinion is not fact. Citing homeschool curricular sales literature is not particularily good evidence. Now on standardized tests, these are mandatory for public school students, but voluntary for homeschool. There is a big difference in test scores for kids who have to take tests, as compared to those who volunteer (smarter kids, generally).
Only in South Carolina did homeschool children do better on SAT and ACT tests, both groups taking tests volutary. However, the racial makeup of Homeschool and Public School students is vastly different. If race profiles had been considered, then even in South Carolina public school students fared better. I recommend drop that statement, or cite evidence. The No Child Left Behind law specifically exempts homeschool students from accountability on tests and progress.
The statement <<Also public schools are well disciplined and they give your child an opportunity to socialize and try out for sports while home schooling doesnï¿½t.>> is very misleading. Homeschool students are allowed to participate in School extra-curricular activities, by law. THe socializing comment is probably true, but I have seen loner kids in public schools and homeschooling with the same frequency.
I would have mentioned more in detail why kids are homeschooled: religion; parents don't like what they think is taught in public school; et al
Finally, one advantage homeschooling does offer: the ability to adjust school schedules to different requirements, trips, events, and season. In that regard, Public schools are not so flexible.
Your concusion needs to be strengthened, as it is, it stands passe and whimpy. I would rewrite all that paragraph.

As a compare and contrast, it needs more strength. Pick specific areas, then compare and contrast: areas such as schedule, flexibility, academic purpose, extracurricular, cost.
