I know this is neither politics nor religion but it is controversial. My kids attended public schools. I was a very involved parent with the schools and made my presence known. I feel my kids got a decent education in the public schools. I do know families that home school. Somehow, I think something is missing in a home schooled environment. I think having our kids 'survive' a public school environment is a learning experience in and of itself. I know many disagree. I'd like to hear the opinions of others. Though, I must say, my kids are all grown and out on their own. It was a HUGE sigh of relief when they were finally all done with school. Crazy busy and tumultuous time.
