  •  It's a touchtone issue for me (11+ / 0-)

    Unless we're talking about a special needs child or a super genius child not served well by traditional school, I'm highly suspect of home schooling. To me the home schooling movement is a dangerous radical development that threatens to destroy the very foundations of our society.  

    Our country was founded on the notion of free public education, though Roman Catholic in American founded their own parallel system due to the dominance of anti-Catholic Protestantism in school systems in the 19th and 20th centuries.  Both systems were based upon the notion of communitarianism, i.e. it takes a village to raise a child.  To reject local schools is to reject the very essence of what makes the United States what it is.
