I'm sorry you didn't get any answer to your question so far, and I cannot provide you with one either. But since the thread is open, may I ask: why are you considering homeschooling?As a super-successful product of public education myself (and my husband and all his family - I mention them because they are Americans, I'm not), I firmly believe homeschooling is a bad idea for several reasons. First, as educated and smart as you may be, there's no way you're an expert in everything a child needs to be taught, and you're not trained as an educator - unless you are a teacher by profession, in which case you might as well enroll your kids in your class and be done with it. There's a reason why medical procedures are performed by doctors, houses are built by masons and classes are taught by teachers - there's a level of expertise needed that people are specifically trained for. Second, even if you do get the education part mostly right, there's no substitute to a class and a playground to the social integration and training your kids will get in school. School is much more than a place where kids learn the "standard" things. It's where they learn about themselves, their likes, dislikes and talents, where they get exposed to new ideas, people and attitudes, where they get inspired and curious during the learning process, where they learn to follow formal rules, work in a team and be part of a social structure. I'm not saying you cannot provide some version of this kind of more subtle learning at home, you already are actually, but it's a much more limited one that what they'll get at school.If specifically the interaction with very different people and exposure to "out-there" ideas that you might consider wrong or even dangerous is what concerns you, think again: would you like your kids to accept views and principles only because they're the only ones they know, or because you raised them properly with these principles and won them over because these principles are actually right and worth to abide to? From my personal experience, the mainstream political attitudes of the society and school I grew up with never won over the super-progressive principles my parents raised me with. Neither did the religious uptightness of the town my husband grew up in ever won over his liberal upbringing.And to share an example of homeschooling from real life, one of my best friends in grad school was homeschooled, and I was lucky to meet all his family at some point. I noticed that both him and all his siblings were super-smart and knowledgeable (well, at least the older 2 are phD's in mathematics), but in a very narrow area. His lovely and super-intelligent mum, who was a doctor by training and briefly by profession, even though she did a great job in all other areas, didn't manage to distill her love and appreciation of art and literature to her sons, who were practically illiterate in such matters. That's something they wouldn't have been able to get away with in a normal school. All of them were also quite narrow minded and socially awkward, and found it hard to handle the exposure to the "big, wide world" later on in life, sticking to what I call a "within a block of known stuff" existence.Sorry if I tired you with this tirade, I just hope I gave you a little food for thought. Your kids' education is an enormous decision, and I wish you all the best!
