Does either homeschooling or public schooling have to be better than the other?

Accepting the Choice to Homeschool or Not to Homeschool

Just as with Yankees and Red Sox fans, when it comes to the issue of educating their children most families are for one of either homeschooling or public schooling.

While homeschooling parents might wax poetic all day about the virtues of their style of education, public school parents would wonder how homeschooling parents can isolate their children from the mainstream even if they acknowledge the faults of a public school education.

In reality, homeschooling is a choice that is right for some families and not for others, so if you're considering homeschooling your child be honest with yourself and with your family. Can you provide a nurturing educational environment? Is your public school system below standard or quite good? Can you take the time to construct good lessons and exercises? There is no right educational style, but a right one for each family, so think carefully before committing your child to one approach.
