We seriously considered it. A lot of our friends home school. I really thought hard about it with our youngest. But, she insisted she wanted to "Go to school and sit in a desk and read." I taught her to read before she turned three, but she loved school so much. She has Asperger's Syndrome, so for her, the social aspect is really important. It's social, but in a fairly strict, planned and predictable environment, so she actually does better socially in school than she does in more free form situations.

We continue to educate our kids at home, even when they go to public school. There is a lot schools don't teach, everything from the intricacies of Evolution to String Theory (which my 11 year old can tell you more about than I can) to politics. I even still read to my kids, when they let me. Even My Man (who hates to read) will sit and listen when I read out loud to the kids.

When we have kids they will be home schooled. I would of course push some sort of programs and clubs on them to socialize and there would be plenty of play dates but I think in most places and in most cases these days kids can learn more at home than in a classroom. Even in school myself, I begged my parents to home school me, probably from the time I was in 4th or 5th grade all the way up to senior year! I almost dropped out and got a GED but I didn't because my parents wanted to see me walk across the stage (I'm the youngest and felt obligated). I lived in two different states and always felt like I was held behind and don't want to do the same to my kids. BUT, some schools are very different, and if you get lucky enough to live in an area where decent schools are available and choose to ship 'em off each day to said school, go for it and count yourself lucky!

I have thought about it. But my boys need some time away from their mother. She coddles them too much. Also, with the economy the way it is, we both have to work at the moment.
