Who home schools and who has kids in public/private school?

I home schooled till #6 came along then we did Christian private for a couple yrs and decided on public.

The private was a 1.5 hour bus ride with transfer and the public is 30 min on the bus that stop at the corner of our acerage.

The public is the small country school I went to and until last year had 2 of the same teachers I had! There are several like minded teachers there as well as the principle so it is perfect in every way for us. It is a amazing blessing.

They are 75 student Kindie through grade 7. As long as they have 65 students they wil remain open. If not the kids will be bussed to larger city like school or back to private. If that happens I will homeschool again.

I have 5 children going there and another family has 4 and will have 5 as well next year. If we both home school the schooled will most likely shut down... No pressure here lol

We use public school. I've often thought of home schooling, and if I didn't have to work, I really think that I would do it. It would remove so many of the troubles that arise. But anyhow, that's not a possibility for us right now. Our girls were in private school for a couple of years when we lived in Wisconsin, but we can't afford private on the East Coast. The one in Wisconsin was affiliated with our church, and we got a pretty decent discount.

We homeschool. We used to do public school, but it wasn't working out for #3 so we pulled them all out.

All my kids go to public school. I couldn't provide the trained assistance that Sebastian and Sydney get at school if I home schooled them. That and it wouldn't be fair to Becca or Noah to be home schooled, they love school and have friends there and look forward to going. Becca asks 3000000x a day when she is going to school, and tells me how it's not fair that Sebastian gets to go in the morning and she has to go in the afternoon lol

We home-school. If we could afford it, we would consider our church's school though.

I have homeschooled all of them from the beginning. I couldnt handle the nit picky crap I hear about and would be ¨that mom¨ to the school staff so it is just better that I do it myself. I mean, seriously, the orthodontist receptionist always asks if I need a note to take the kid back to school. I am just aghast that I would need that. It is like everything revolves around the school. I just know I would have blow up fights with administration. I do resepect what teachers are trying to accomplish, though. I wouldnt want to be a classroom teacher. Though I have thought of helping coach reading or elementary math when my kids are all working independently. I struggled so much in math as a kid and I am rocking it now. I feel like I would be a better tutor than someone who was good in math. Like I can see what the kid is missing.

I believe that if you homeschool in Australia up to grade/year 12 they don't recognise the final year and I think you have to re-do the final year of school. If this were not the case then I would definitely homeschool my kids for high school, as there is a lot of bullying, drugs and extremely bad behaviour in the public and private high schools.

Furthermore, the private schools are prohibitively expensive and even though I only have 4 and would only have 3 in high school at the same time, that would be at least $1500 per month for one of the cheapest private schools! We are currently placing all our hopes on a new public school that is apparently being built 5 minutes up the road from us. I will be speaking to our primary school's headmaster to see if this is actually going ahead and will be ready when my daughter leaves primary school (2 years time).

We homeschool. We're looking into moving to a better area though and would send the kids to public schools if we did.

Public school, I tried homeschooling for one year and was so relieved when the girls decided to try school again, also the issues that were going on when I pulled them out were resolved. I really like the public school now, and the teachers all know me and my tribe. My sil works there as a para and I get all the gossip lol. It is a pretty small school, and they divide the classes up if they have 23-24 students so right now all of the grades have 2 classes. I think the biggest class is malayna's with 14 kids. More and more families have been moving into the district because of the school.

My younger children all go to the local public school (we walk each day rain or shine). It is a good school with small classes. We don't have any private schools that i like locally. My oldest lives away at college

Our kids go to a small private Christian school from k-9. My oldest in grade 10 is in public school. LOVE my Christian school, but it's good for them to move on after grade 9.
