Its a terriable option that makes your kids unable to deal with social situations. And at the end of the day what kind of education are you really giving your children so when they go out into higher education can they hack it and make it into todays fast pace situations and job market?

I am exceedingly happy with homeschooling. We were in public schools for five years, and by the end, it was too much work for not enough for the kids.
