I don't think so, unless I died or something.... I can't work physically, so I might as well HS.
nothing could or would or has enticed me to send my kids to any kind of school
I might consider it if certain things came into play. First I would only do it if my kids could go to a certain school because there's only 1 in our county that I'm comfortable with. Second I would only do it if I had to go back to work for some reason & was no longer able to stay home. If I was unable to continue giing my children the education they deserved & had no other options. (but again there's the one school I'd be ok with.)
I have considered it. I would send my child if I felt like I wasn't doing enough at home!! Otherwise I will send them once they hit the 9th grade. Just because I homeschooled my 11th and 12th grade year they colleges wouldn't except my homeschool deploma. So I will send them to school so they can graduate with a deploma, so they wont have the same issue!!
In order to homeschool in the first place, I had to "promise" family that I would send the kids back to public/private school the next time we move, assuming we move to an area with good schools. Hubby will most likely be retired out of the army this summer and we're looking at different potential places with job offerings and the school systems around them, and so far I'm seeing they will NOT in ANYWAY be going to those schools lol. If we moved back to WI where I grew up, I'd be expected by both sides of the family to send the kids to those schools. (However, they already were very flexible with me and let me send my daughter for just extra curriculars the last time we had an extended stay there which worked amazingly.) I think the only way I could rest easy sending them back at this point is if they leveled off. As in, they were at the same grade level across all subjects so they weren't struggling to catch up in one subject and being held back in another. My 3 yr old is working on some 1st grade stuff already. I'd have a hard time justifying him being in lets say K if he's at 3rd grade math. I kinda find how I've flopped so drastically since I first started. When we first started homeschooling I was under the firm belief that once we moved, they'd go back...and now I'm really struggling with the idea of sending them back to a public/private school lol. High school is still open tho if that's what they want.
