What do you think homeschooling will do? Shelter him from the world? Keep him from smoking? Keep him from meeting kids who are bad infleunces? Do you plan on keeping him home 24/7? That isn't always how it works.
And to the other poster....what does being 15 in the 8th grade mean? I have a son who was born in August '90 and he started K (because of developmental issues related to Aspergers) when he was 7. He was 15 all through his 8th grade year. He's now 19 and a Senior, he's never failed, he's an honors student, is11th in his graduating class and a member of the National Honors Society. He has never gotten a grade under a B in his life. There are 5 other students who are older (all born in 1990, though) than him in his grade level & they were all helpd back between K-3 because of maturity issues. Maybe the OP's son was held back in the early grades because he wasn't quite as mature as the others in his grade.
