Would you ever consider *not* homeschooling?

Posted by   + Show Post
What would entice you to send your kids to a school instead of homeschooling? Or would you ever? If so, what would the perfect scenario be for your choice of brick and mortar school?

 We just want what's best for our kids.  If we can no longer provide that as far as their education, then we will look for places that can. I'd be surprised if they go back to a traditional public school, and we can't afford private school.  Still, our county is surprisingly open to alternative methods of schooling and there are four alternative schools, one in particular that does not have a stigma attached.  We'd probably look into that if need be.

Only if my children wanted to go.  I don't see that happening anytime soon.  They are having too much fun and freedom homeschooling.  It would be a private school though that was able to meet their interests and gave them freedom to pursue their interests.  Do they have any lego schools around?  LOL

Yes. I might put my kids back into public school after we get moved to another duty station in a few years. I definitely won't while we're still in San Diego though. My ideal school would be one with a small class size (20 or so students per teacher), with high test scores and involved parents.

I would send them if I felt like I was failing them too bad to fix it.

My son would love a Lego school.

I wouldn't send my youngest to the local public schools, but last yr I seriously considered enrolling her in one of the online public schools. I also looked at a couple of private schools. The perfect B&M school would be a Sudbury School

 Nope, not anymore.  The situation would have to be dire for me to even consider it.  I love teaching my boys at home.

 I really don't think there would be anything to entice me to send my son to school. Though, at times it is tempting. ; )

My husband and I are convinced that God wants us to home educate all the way through high school. We love it!

Nope. I used to say I would if that ever seemed the better option for her. I suppose that's still true, but that being the case is so unlikely that it's really not considered an option. Things would have to change drastically for b&m school to be on the table. We're in this for the long haul.

If we moved to another country with a better educational system like Taiwan, Singapore or Finland.
