I believe that homeschooling is a good thing for kids. They get hands on experience with their parents. That would be good for kids with learning disabilities. Also, if your kid has bullying problems in school, they wouldn't have to go through that. Also, another point, kids wouldn't have to go through all of the stress of school. That is my argument.

No, children don't only go to school for education, but also for experience. If they can't deal with problems, they will not run a successful life. Their hands should not be held the whole way, otherwise they may always be dependent of others to provide for them.

Going to school is a way for many children to develop and learn how to do things that can't be simply taught. For example, they could learn social skills. School can force individuals to "Come Out Of Their Shell". Everyone is different socially and acts different. They need to find a way to be able to express themselves, make friends, and communicate with others. This is especially important in a business situation considering you would have to communicate with others.

Another example is management skills. School can be stressful, not everything is completely structured towards each individual. This will force students to be able to manage things such as stress, time, and workflow. For example, you may have to create blocks of your time to do certain activities such as homework if you still wish to do other things such as pursue extra-curricular activities.

Okay, let's review your points:

Sure, they won't deal with all the problems in school, but they will find those problems somewhere in life. Some kids don't have problems in school.

I agree, they shouldn't have their hands held, but they should for some things. When the kid graduates, they will be dependent on them. Not the parent. If the parent has been teaching them anything, they would know that.

Some kids can't manage social skills. Some of them are introverts. They get flustered and nervous over people talking to them. That's not a good environment to raise a child in school. Yes, it would be important in a business situation, but half of these kids in school will not go to a place where there is not business deals going on. They could communicate with kids who are their neighbors, instead of meeting someone new, that could be a scary experience for them.

Some things have too much stress in them for kids. If kids were home schooled, their parents could balance the perfect management.

Actually, homeschooled children are far more socialized for the real world because their parents introduce them to the real world far more often and with greater diversity of experience than any government school minion. And this does not even take into account that homeschool children are far better educated than their government school slave counterparts.

Ask well socialized children what they think of home schooled children. They are usually seen by their regular schooled peers as odd and socially awkward. Sometimes it is necessary for children with severe learning disabilities or when there is extreme continuous bullying but it should be a last resort because the social awkwardness can be lasting.
