Most of people go to school in their childhood, it is our basic education. But still there are some people who didn’t go to school, but got their education at home. This is called distant learning. 

Distant learning is when a child doesn’t go to school, but studies at home on his own or with the help of a tutor. It may be because of his health, or because his family travels a lot or for some other reasons. There are of course advantages of such learning – you can get concentrated on what you read and study, you have as much time as you need to understand the material. But on the other hand school is not only about studying, it’s about communication with other people, it’s finding your place in the society, getting friends, learning how to behave in public and so on. So I think that if it is possible a child should go to school.

Distant education also has another meaning. When we go to university or want to start some advanced courses there is an option to have distant learning. The advantage of such learning is that you can study in another country without leaving your own one. It gives you more freedom in your schedule – you don’t have to attend lessons, so one can combine studying and working. Distant learning gives you a chance to have a certificate in any field that you like and choose education you want. 

So I suppose sometimes distant learning can be a good option, but of course everyone chooses what is better for him.
