Someone recently posted a question about education, and I noticed some moms homeschool their kids. Do you think homeschooling rivals the public school system and/or private schools? Or do you feel that kids are better off in a public or private school setting? Why?

We home-school for many reasons. When people ask me why we do, I usually say, "do you want the whole list or just the top ten?" However, it is a very personal choice and I will not condemn anyone for not making the same one I do.
I can tell you, we love it and my daughter (my youngest won't test until next year) has done very well on equivalency tests-- scored very high for her grade level.

I homeschooled my first two all the way to graduation. They are wonderful, very social adults, very smart, have businesses and are civic and politically minded. The 3rd homeschooled to 10th grade and then I was div. so he entered public school and did very well. Now he is career Air Force and about to go into an Officer program. The 4th was homeschooled till 7, placed in public school (at the same time of the div.) and is now again homeschooled. We live in a school district that has the highest concentration of scientist, chemist and such in the world. At the same time, while his education from books was on a high level, so was his introduction of subverse things.
