    I think that, as long as the parents have the proper teaching skills, it is probably good for the education part, however, I believe that it does stunt a child's social growth skills. Tough call.

    In today's age of networking, schooling one's children in an isolated environment would be very destructive. But creative home schooling where groups of homeschooling parents combine their children's "classrooms" for socialization and working together, I think it would almost always surpass public education, and would probably put many private schools to shame.

    It allows for the creation of a separtist action which will cause severe development problems for children and their social skills.

    I highly recommend home schooling. And as much home medical care as possible. Be your own attorney also. Government has purposely fooled us into turning over our children to them. They've fooled us to think we need a lawyer to argue our cases for us in court. They require us to see a doctor, before we can even treat an infection!

    It depends on who is doing the teaching. For some, it works well, for others, not so much. If the person doing the teaching is competent and intelligent, then I'm all for it. If the person doing the teaching has an 8th grade education and believes that a round world is a lie of the devil... not so much.

    NO schooling would be better than the indoctrination program of Public schools.

    Keep spreading the misinformation. What indoctrination? That's one of the biggest lies put out there.

    Homeschooling is far more sensible than govt operated schools. One size does NOT fit all!

    Home or otherwise, Turn education over to the free market. That will take WAY better care of all things!

    That's how education started. 'Professers' were hired to teach specific lessons. If their work was not satisfactory, they were fired by THAT student. (or his guardian)

    Actually, I pretty well remember those days. A one-room school 24-33 kids in 8 grades, run by a school board of 3 farmers. The county school superintendant showed up maybe once a year. We got a new teacher almost every year, LOL

    I was actually thinking of the Middle East a thousand years ago, but then, when a system works, it WORKS! lol

    I've done homeschooling 2 times, sure you get to sleep in and be lazy all day. But seriously, I never learned one thing during homeschooling. It's easy to cheat, get lazy, I was very lonley, it was horrible. Then I returned to school and am now currently a 4.0 high school student!

    I am all for it, for one thing schools are indoctrinating our children into things I do not want my children believing.

    I don;t see why not. I've no some people who've home schooled their kids and they turn out fine. The biggest complaint I usually see is that people think kids won't get to interact with other kids and learn social skills. The parents I've known to home school bring their kids to community activities for kids, church activities, etc.

    I am not a fan of home schooling. Most of what I have seen depends on the parents and the real issue is that they brainwash their children with their ideas, ie. religious beliefs. Blank, young minds need stimulation, not rote learning. Having said that, I was taught to read, speak two languages and do basic math and could do both by three. That served me well but the religion did and still does make me puke.

    It completely depends on the parents whether it is a good idea or a very bad idea.

    My oldest son and daughter, now 35 and 37, were homeschooled for their first four years of elementary school, and they did great; but it became too much to handle.

    The results are in. Home-schooled children have better college acceptance tests than those going to public schools. It is a viable option if your only alternative is a crappy government school.
