I don't know any kids currently homeschooled, but my dh was and he hated it. He begged his mom to let him go to public school and she wouldn't let him. She's an intelligent woman, but I wouldn't say she was qualified to teach her 6 kids all the way through school. My dh is lacking in a LOT of areas of knowledge because of her poor teaching. That is the only thing I have to base an opinion from.

If the parent is taking the time to actually teach them and be totally involved in their education, I support it. But I think it's important to allow the children to have friends and be involved in sports, drama, or other type of extra curricular activity as well.

Dh was home schooled for a while. My perception on him? I love everything about him. He's playful, fun, loving, attentive, and NOTHING like his mother. Lol

I think a lot of it depends on the parents/people who are teaching them... whether or not they themselves are well educated and sociable. I think homeschooling can be very successful, but can also be a complete disaster.
