Not really religion, but I would say morals played a fairly large role in our decision. Education was the biggest push for us, though. 8)

Not religious. But I can say that my beliefs and morals played a large role.

no, although we are Christians.  I know our faith is not based on wheter or not they learn it at school.  Plus, PS gave them many lessons in love, diversity, etc. It also allowed them to show who they were to their friends.  We chose to home school for other reasons.

Nope.... more educational.  My kids were not getting the extra help they needed in school and were miserable :(

It was one of the parts, but education is a primary concern.

I think it was about 75% educational, and 25% religious.  The school system we are in is awful. SC is around 49th for schools, and our county is one of the lowest scored in the state. We wanted to move after the first PS year, then the second, and when it was still not feasible after the third, we knew we needed to get them out. We also wanted to incorporated Bible study in, which is why we went with homeschooling rather than virtual school like we had previously decided.
