  • It depends on the school district, but I think I would enjoy homeschooling my son.

  • My son is 3 years old, and i've been homeschooling him really since the day he was born. I'm a SAHM. I'm currently trying to decide if I'm going to homeschool or send him to public school.

    the schools around my parts leave something to be desired. I'm not impressed at all. I'm wondering if we all have been brainwashed to believe that the only good education comes from a public ran school. 150 years ago, all learning was done at home.

    So I guess I really can't answer your question, since I'm not sure myself. I guess I would rather my kid get the best education he can.

  • Public or Private. It helps them learn how to interact with their peers and solve conflicts. I would rather them be with other kids than stuck in the house all day looking at a text book.

  • My 3 year old is in a public preschool. We love his teacher and he's doing pretty well. So far we haven't had any problems with the school

  • Public or private if I was displeased with the local schools. I believe the social interactions with other peers are too important to miss out on.
