How much of one?

I did allow my two younger daughters to choose PS or Homeschool, they both chose homeschooling. My youngest was going to a small private school that was more of a homeschool environment, and was going to return till they changed locations...move 1-1/2 hours away...which the teacher is upset that she isn't returning, we had to look at the safety factor since she would be riding the city buses (two of the transfer points are not safe at all). The curriculum we are useing will allow her to work part time and finish school by August.

Absolutely but I am not too worried. They love homeschooling and are having too much fun to stop. I try and follow their needs and interests. Next month we are starting our co-ops. They will be starting a class on learning science through making pizza over an open fire and the next month they will take a class on the water shed while riding in a canoe. They know they would not be given that kind of learning in any school. You can't force a child to enjoy homeschooling. If we weren't homeschooling I know I would be very picky what school they went to.
I made the mistake of letting my son go to public school in 5th grade. We had moved to a nice area and I let him decide. It was then that things changed and there was no going back. The damage from one teacher alone was tremendous. His 6th grade teacher was awesome but it didn't fix the damage already created. My son is now in his 20's and still having a rough time. My daughter is in the 6th grade level now, she has moments where she begs to try public schooling. She is so back and forth on it. For now she doesn't have a choice. I can't say what the future will hold but for now we are standing firm.
