The Ladies Home Journal (didn’t realize they were even still publishing) has a quiz to help you decide if homeschooling or public schooling right for you. It told me…
A public school might be the most appropriate school for your child and your family. Public schools offer many benefits, including a broad curriculum, exposure to other cultures and lifestyles, and a feeling of community. When parents stay active in their child’s education (helping with homework, attending meetings with teachers), a child can get her personal needs met through a public education system.
And this is after I answered that I fundamentally disagree with public education, my kids are well above or below normal intelligence, they do well in 1 on 1 situations, and that my local schools have serious drug, gang, and alcohol problems.
I did get the quiz to spit out a recommendation to homeschool or private school, but I had to answer in the most negative, anti-social way possible for each question to get that result.
