At this point in time, yes. I would homeschool no matter what.

Quoting bmw29:

I would do everything within reason to keep him home. I see what PS is doing to my niece's and nephews and I don't want that.


This. I'd do everything within reason to keep homeschooling, but would not do it "no matter what." 

I mean - if my husband gave me an ultimatum (which he never would, but hypothetically), "Put the kids into school or we're divorcing." My marriage comes first, my children second, so I would.

If it were illegal to homeschool and I were threatened with losing my children, I'd put them in school. 

I think some homeschoolers have this idea that school is pure, concentrated evil doled out onto our children incrementally. I disagree (barring a few very specific examples of truly horrid schools). Parents can have a lot of influence on what goes on in a PS - volunteer in the classroom, communicate with the teacher. It's not this total disconnection from their lives.

But I'd do other things - I'd jump through hoops if I had to (thankfully, I don't) re: state requirements, I'd give up comforts to afford to continue it, that sort of thing. But no, not "no matter what."

 Yes,  there was never a chance at all of ever putting them in a school. It was/is our conviction to keep our children at home.  We would run and hide if need be.

i would like to say yes, but i honestly don't know.  if anything happened & my situation changed and i had to go to work full time, i don't know if i would continue to hs or not. 

as far as the state changing guidelines & making things more difficult....yes, i would just through those hoops as i needed to.

I would do my best to keep homeschooling my kids through any major life changes.

I would do whatever possible to keep my kids at home with me. I am very lucky to have a very close and supportive family so even if I have to work I think we could work it out so my kids have someone to help out.

Yep.... Even if we had to go "under ground" with our homeschooling.
