So true. The town I live in is HUGE on homeschooling (probably because after elementary schools things go really down hill). For the clarification, I am not against homeschooling, but I am horrid about getting my kids socialized and we have a really bad shy/reclusive personality in our genetic makeup as it is.
My oldest does not have the right temperament to homeschool. With a good teacher she THRIVES in a group education setting. She just didn't have that good teacher, so I am going to help pick up the slack and get her interested again. (She lost interest, but wants to read). I think I am doing what any good mom should, plus since she is a December baby she will be 5.5 years before they let her in kindergarten so she still has 2 years of preschool (although right now she does only go two full days a week), she is by no means behind.
As for being socially right, I don't think even if my kids go to public school that it will happen for them. It's just not in their genetics.
