I have a two-year old and have been planning his education since before he was born.
I researched the idea of homeschooling, but have decided against it. Personally, I just don't feel my wife and I provide the broadest range of experience from which I want my son to benefit. I understand there are many online resources, but I plan on using these as a supplement to his education and not the basis.
That being said, he will NOT attend a government school. This limits my options in my small town, but there are good schools around.
I'm just letting you know there are other reasons why homeschooling hasn't caught on. I think there are many parents like me, who just don't feel confident enough to be the sole source of their child's education.
That being said, Travylr was exactly on point about why the state doesn't want competition. If government education was really good, they wouldn't have to make it compulsory.
