Would you rather put your kid in public school or homeschool? (Let's say that time and money isn't a problem.)

Public school. The social element is as crucial as the academic education IMHO. Plus there are some good schools around here.

Public school. Where I live the public schools are excellent.

Neither. The public schools where I live are a disaster, and I don't feel qualified enough across the curriculum to homeschool. Private school is the only alternative here. Fortunately, there are many good ones.

Public, if I had a child now. The school district I went to, and the one my daughter went to (although she went to a combination of public and private schools), were excellent. The school district where I live now is quite good. I am fairly intelligent, but I am not trained to be a teacher.

Homeschooling risks poor social development. It's not the case for everyone, but I'd prefer my kids learn to deal with the world.

Homeschool, absolutely. My wife and I are planning to homeschool our children.

Parental education isn't the factor people think it to be; I was homeschooled and my mother had only a HS education, my father a college drop out. I have 8 siblings, all homeschooled, and we have all been far above national averages on any testing.

My sons mother and I both do not have to time to homeschool him. With both of us working we will need to rely on the local public schools.

Although they're technically public I have both my kids in charter school
