I don't think children in most cases should be home schooled. IMHO most parents are not qualified to teach children beyond the preschool level. I think that it puts these kids at a disadvantage in multiple ways. They are socially and academically behind their peers.
Don't misunderstand me, I didn't say all. Some kids do great and have qualified parents. However , I think more districts should have stricter guidelines in regards to home schooling.
