This paper examines how homeschooling has a significant impact on democracy, as envisioned by influential educational philosopher John Dewey. As a growing trend in alternative education, homeschooling has raised questions about how it would affect societal advancement and democratic principles. Progressive education pioneer John Dewey offered important insights into the connection between education and democracy. His theories placed a strong emphasis on the need for education in promoting social participation and active citizenship, which serve as the cornerstones of a functioning democratic society. The study explores how homeschooling aligns or deviates from Dewey's ideal of democratic education through a thorough analysis of Dewey's writings and educational theories. It tries to explore the ramifications of homeschooling through the perspective of John Dewey's educational philosophy. Moreover, it aims to add to the continuing conversation about how education helps to create democratic societies. Understanding the advantages and drawbacks of homeschooling considering Dewey's theories can help legislators, teachers, and parents determine the most effective ways to advance democratic principles and civic involvement in the context of modern education.
