Schooling is considered to be a very important and essential part of a child’s life. Most people in India look at and believe that school education is confined to either a government or a private school. This however has been changing over recent years and many parents have started looking at alternative ways of schooling that break the barriers of conventional methods of schooling and teaching, which focuses more on textbook learning and exams rather than on experiential learning that emphasizes critical thinking and problem solving. While alternative schools have been in existence in India for several years and have only become more popular over the years, another form of schooling that has started gaining interest and is becoming popular in India over the past couple of years has been homeschooling (Bhalla, 2018a).
