Default Do we have any homeschoolers on the board?

My son is wrapping up his first year of kindergarden in a few weeks. I have to admit that I'm happy about the progress he's made, but I'm less than thrilled with some of the other things that have happened this year. I'm putting some serious thought into possibly homeschooling him and his sisters in the next few years and I would like to hear some first hand stories.

well, I'm not personally, but my cousins are. Let's just say they are 15 and 13, and they are already done with college classes. I mean, they like it, but I don't think they no any better because they have been homeschooled all there lives.
Anyway, they think homeschooling is good and what happens is that every couple months you have to send the state a sort of progress report that shows that your kids are actually learning.

I'm not Jeremy. I like the everyday school life. As long as I'm safe, I have no real need to feel that I should be home schooled.

what was wrong with the school, was he like getting beat up or just bad acremdics.

From a kid stand point. Being home schooled would not be good because i make no friends.
But i dont really know the whole deal

I was home schooled since 3rd grade, personally I didn't like it and think it had an effect on my social life. But, I hear 97% of the time its better than regular school.

I'd much rather be in a regular schools. I have a good social life and a lot of friends. Especiallly with some of the stuff that goes on, I have people who can actually help out with things compared to just one person.

I homeschooled all of my children from 1st - 12th. They liked it. They managed to get alot more work done in a relaxed safe environment.

I didn't like the teachers and he was far too smart for the level of work he was doing.

I was homeschooled for the years I would've been in Middle School.

I had no life and no friends. Wasn't fun. So I went to public school when I started High School, and soon I'll be in my Junior year. It's going well.

So yeah...!
