My husband and I come from two different schools of educational thought. My husband was homeschooled (along with his siblings) years ago and seemed to like it. Fortunately, his mother is strong in math and science and he developed his own interest in literature and history, so he's pretty well-rounded. I attended both public and private schools and had wonderful experiences at both (I only switched between the two because I went from living with my mom to living with my dad who insisted that a private education would be better for anyone). We've been talking--rather, my husband's been insisting--that we (read: I) homeschool our kids. I've been doing research on the subject for quite some time and can't get over the fact that every single book I've read is written by an author who had a horrible school experience (be it personally or vicariously through their spouse or child). Reading so much bashing on the school system is hard for me because I loved it so much and flourished in that environment. I understand that everyone is different, but I can tell that my oldest child would do really well in school, also. Can anyone recommend any resources that simply present homeschooling simply as another option and not some way to escape 'the evils and terrors of the school system'? What's also frustrating is that I am doing all this research when my husband (who never went to school himself) just keeps dogging on how awful schools are. The only reason I'm up for homeschooling as of now is because of drastic cuts being made to our local schools in all areas--I think if things were like when I was younger, I'd be 100% for putting my kids in school. I'm not dogging on homeschooling, I'm just looking for unbiased information...if it exists.
