The research is overwhelming that homeschooling is best for kids.
I don't think there is any "best" program. How well home school works and how happy your family is depends on the right match of the progam to the philosophy of the parents and the personality and learning styles of the children. If you use a "program" it should allow the child to work at their own pace, there shouldn't be busy work like worksheets, and it should encourage "real life"Â learning and lifelong learning.
I homeschooled my 3 children and didn't use a program. I started out using the texts used by local schools. My oldest son was at a high school level when he was 2nd grade so I started using college texts. We settled into mostly unschooling.

You can find lots of homschooling moms on the discussion boards at http://www.mothering.com/
Your state board of education should have info for homeschooling families. We now live in AZ and the state has an online homeschooling program that free for AZ kids. Indiana has online classes and online high school. There is a lot of info on the Indiana State Board of Education about programs if your state doesn't have much.

The idea that homeschooled children are isolated is a common misconception. All of the homeschool children I know are very social, The socialize and do well around many different groups of people. They learn about many different points of views.

Home school isn't isolation. My children go on field trips and interact with other children on a DAILY bases. Putting them in Public/Private Schools teach just the same "point of views". Teaching Science, Language Arts, Math, Reading, and etc. is a very broad and general form of education.
Program/Text/Curriculum...I'm really not trying to get into the debate of what is what. And yes, Every child is different, and learns differently. No, there may not be "THE BEST" homeschooling Program/Text/Curriculum/etc. for everyone to follow.
I just want to know IF YOU HOME SCHOOL OR PLAN TO, which curriculums, etc have you or do you follow and IN YOUR OWN OPINION which do you think is best?
Im looking up Belta, and K12 is interesting.
