No rude replies. My son is very bright. He is at or above grade level for each subject of learning in school. The issue that we have is that he is having problems behaving. I am worried that the negative reaction that he received from his teacher might discourage his love of learning. We currently have him on a disciplinary program that is hard and it seems to be working, but I am not sure if the public schools in our area are right for his learning style. One on one, in a calm setting, he does well. Put him in a group that is loud or in a situation where he doesn't agree with what needs to be done, and he misbehaves. If his behavior continues into the next school year or beyond, how can I determine whether home schooling would be beneficial for him? I do not want him to think that he has an "easy out" any time that things in life are not working out as he wants, but at the same time, I want to see him thrive academically.

At some point do you want him to deal with being able to function in crowds or a structured setting? If that's not a concern for you go ahead and home school. But if you think he needs to get a handle on this, I would keep him school. He won't learn the skills he needs if he's not put in a position to need them.
