In india homeschooling will largely fall on women because it is the mindset of society that women should be at home and men should earn due to which the studies of children is mostly seen by the mother. In such families who prefer to give their child homeschooling, all the responsibility of child is handled by only mother because she is housewife. It is because in some family they don’t except women to do job after marriage due to which she remain housewife and have to do all the household work plus take care of children in that also if their is homeschooling for their child than her husband will not share the responsibility due to which all the work of household and family plus child homeschooling will largely fall on women.
