Gaill you feel sad for kids who attend traditional public school, yet you are shocked by someone feeling sorry for your home schooled child?
Aren't you just as close minded about traditional school as some people are about home school?
OP both have pros and cons. There is no one best to educate all children. Whatever you choose, you can always try another option later to see what meets your daughter's need best.

I continue to be surprised at other people's assumptions. Kids like to home school, they beg to home school.
No not all kids beg to home school, some thrive in the public school system, some prefer the extra social benefits of dances and clubs. There are many like my son who's IQ is high enough that they require advanced classes that I could not teach. There are also kids like my son who need the extra services offered by the schools for needs such as Aspergers/ADHD and many others, I would be sheltering him by keeping him home. I can give him the social tools for everyday life but some lessons have to be learned with their peers. My Other two love school days and look forward to school. don't generalize that All children beg to home school or like it. My kids would go insane if they had to be home all the time.
