I went to public school and although it wasn't a great district and we had far less educational gain than some better districts, it was a great experience. The socialization was very beneficial, however the drama and bullies were just disgusting. I can see why some people feel home schooling is the right fit, however I think the child should be the one to make the ultimate decision. I graduated with a girl who was home schooled for years and hated it. Her mom made her do it out of control and being over protective. If I had the choice, I too would have requested to be homeschooled for the simple fact that our schools were terrible. My fondest memories of high school were lunch period and the weekend parties...not much else. As a college student, I often find classes to be challenging for the simple fact that my school only prepared the top few of the class to continue on. If parents can put in the extra effort to make sure that their children get socialization and the education they need to succeed, more power to them.
