I REALLY am set on homeschooling. Thankfullly I get to do it this year, but my husband has decided that there is no way he would agree to homschool next year (when my son turns 6 in October). So, I need your help thinking of a good compromise. We have talked and talked about homeschooling vs public school, and basically I am unable to convince him that our chidren will be ok "socially" and "independent" if we homeschool. He wants them mainstream :(
Anyways I was thinking maybe if they could be homeschooled, be apart of a charter school and take classes that have both public and private school kids in it, be apart of maybe boy scouts, and then even possible starting an afterschool daycare program for public school kids whose parents need to work after school hours. What are your thoughts? I am determined to make this work, and even the school districts that are considered the best in our area, the parents are either pulling their kids out of school or they are having issues in their schools.
So, if anyone can think of a good compromise. I wouldn't even mind if my kids get a few hours of public school (I prefer not to) and then the rest done at home (my way, or should I say our way).
