In the direction public schools are headed...Homeschooling is a better choice. I just recently started homeschooling my children and I am constantly questioning if I am making the right choices regarding, not just their education, but their life. I honestly enjoy spending time with them, being involved in their education, and especially knowing they are safe. They are eating healthy meals, getting a chance to focus on a hobby, bonding with one another, and getting a lot more rest. They play putside with all the neighborhood kids vs always having so much homework...Which was ridiculous busywork. They are getting a chance to be kids. In public schools children are being socialized by their peers. The meanest child woth the ugliest soul is usually the one who pulls the strings. This mean child tells the others how they should act, what they should wear, and who they should talk to. No thank you. My kids are still participating in sports, are very well liked by the good kids in our neighborhood, and are learning more than they could in their old public school. Homeschooling is sometimes thr best decision. As a parent it is important to give it everything we have if that is the path we choose for our children.
