We tried the public school option and now I wish we would have started homeschooling much sooner. My kids have learned more in the two years we have homeschooled than they every did in the years of public school. They would come home with homework that they had no idea how to complete because they were not being taught in class. I blame so much on the idea that teachers need to teach to a test instead of for the purpose of education as well as the fact that public schools have become crazed with discipline. I wouldn't dream of sending one of my kids back there. I've taught in both public and private schools before we opted to homeschool, so I have been the teacher and the parent and I can tell you first hand that you want to be VERY involved with your child's education if you opt to leave them in public school. Not all of them are bad, but a blue ribbon award does not a good school make.
