My opinion is that you should raise your children how you see fit. If you aren't comfortable with leaving education in the hands of public or private schools then you do what you need to do for your kids. Nobody else's opinion really matters anyhow. It's not as though the kids don't need to test for grade levels.
FWIW, many universities have a more open mind when it comes to homeschooled kids. From what I have read, on average they get higher test scores and are more prepared for college.

I feel that a LOT of parents that home-school aren't qualified and as a result the children suffer. However IF a parent has the patience, the proper knowledge and can ensure their children are taught properly and with the required knowledge then way to go. Sadly, the reality is many parents that do home-school lack many, if not all, of the necessary skills
