  • No. It's not for me, and it's not for my daughter.

    I'm not against it, it's just not a fit for us.

  • We home-school every year, and will continue to do so until college.

  • Yes, it will be our 3rd year. We started because of the bad job the public schools were doing, and we really enjoy it. My kids are learning much more than they would in public school and getting to take classes that our local public schools have cut out because of budget cuts like art and foreign language (unless you need help learning English, you aren't important enough to get a second language until high school in our public school system, never mind that it's in our required state standards). My younger daughter has commented that it's great to have a teacher who really cares about what she learns instead of telling her to "figure it out" for every question she has.

  • Yep! I love being able to set aggressive standards for my children and create a curriculum that tests their abilities.

  • No, homeschooling is not an option for me or my kids, I know it would not work out for us. l think it is great that there are moms who choose to homeschool, and it works for them!
