What are the benefits of homeschooling verses public schooling?
I am a certified science teacher who is not opposed to public schooling. I'm curious to learn the benefits and drawbacks of homeschooling.
The following info and resources could provide you with some great answers:

Well in my children's case, I can indeed offer some advantages of home schooling. We had no intentions of home schooling until their zoned school became inflexible to their needs. Lake Brantley High did not allow them to duel-enroll into college after 10th or 11th grade. The principal did not want to lose their FTE funding. Our brats were college-ready so we pulled them out during 11th grade so they could dual enroll in college for some courses and me better half (a former high school physics instructor) provided them with some science, foreign language instruction, some college credit for a trip to Scotland and Italy and rather significantly they were able to use their significant aerobic hobby of Irish Step Dancing to satisfy their P.E. credits. That was a great advantage and was significantly logical... Incidently even though Lake Brantley High, their zoned school was one of the top 100 ranked high schools in the United States the principal had great authority and was inflexible to their immediate needs of acceleration etc. The Dual Enrollment allowed them to attend a college's Honors Program, gain college credit for no cost other than books and our youngest happened to graduate from Seminole State College with her Associate of Arts Degree during the summer of her high school graduation. She went to 3rd year university in Colorado the year after her high school graduation. This saved poor old dad some significant coin that he could divert to another brat's Wedding expenses...
Wow! I'm really glad the homeschooling and Dual Enrollment worked out so well! It sounds like an amazing opportunity for your kids. I really appreciate how thoroughly you explained the situation also. It was very helpful. Thank you!
There is a significant niche for home schooling. It should be an acceptable path for some students in some situations... It served our children well due to their school situation and resources available to them(a certified physics teacher/mom

I have a 14 month old and another due next month. Obviously we're not going to start homeschooling yet, but I was just wondering when did people start. Of course we're always trying to learn.
