    The Pros: surely you can study without the risk of having bad teachers (bad in every meaning). In addition you organize your time, you don't have things to do forced in a fixed time.

    The Cons: you don't meet new people, your school path is more difficult (as you are gong to do hard exams as an external homeschooled) and maybe even harder because you are basically alone, without other people to compare your progresses with.

    Pros:
    * control of curriculum
    * safer than many public schools
    * easy to accommodate child with health problems
    * an out from poor quality public schools
    * cheaper than private schools; nearly every family I know with more than three children has homeschooled instead of private school due to the cost
    * many more resources are available today like part time classes to teach science and PE to homeschooling so parents can rely on experts when needed

    Cons:
    * parents have to have one staying home to do this
    * you have to have the temperament for it
