When school was about to begin in the fall, a homeschooling friend of mine looked wistfully at the group of friends that includes her youngest daughter and my eldest. She remarked on starting her twentieth year of homeschooling and how the idea of sending her daughter to school with such a good group of friends seemed like a nice idea. I said that sometimes homeschooling seemed appealing. Then we both laughed at ourselves for thinking the grass is greener and went our own ways.
Do you ever daydream about doing something different with how you educate your children? Why or why not?
I hope it goes without saying that this is a chance to tell your nosy Internet friend (Me!) about what you do/think about doing, not comment on others' choices. I'll go first. I really admire another friend of mine who looks at each of her seven children on a yearly basis and decides what is best for them: public school, cyberschool, homeschool. They've been in and out of the school district and are flourishing academically and socially. I like how she views education from a consumer's point of view, although I'm sure what she does is easier said than done.* Your turn!
*Edit: Uh, I guess I just commented on someone else's choice. Whoops.
