This post is for you. I hope it serves to show you a balance and an honest look into educating your children using the various options available to you. There's a lot of opinion out there, some shaped by hearsay, or facts, myth, experience, and some by a various combination of all or some of the above. Even among others subjective experiences in the educational field, it's hard to let that be a determining factor because no two situations are identical.
I'm going to offer my own opinion, in a round about way, and hope its of some use to someone. I don't claim to be an expert in any field, and with all advice I would strongly encourage giving it much thought and prayer and seeing it if does apply in your own set of circumstances. After being a parent for 24+ years, a public school mom for 13 years (with three children) and a homeschooling mom for 7+ years to five children (three of our kids both homeschooled and public schooled), I can only hope that this has served to benefit me in a way that my 'advise' is coming from a "been there/done that" point of view that will be of use to someone else.
The very same thing can be and should be applied to the discussion of homeschooling, public schooling and private Christian schooling. There is no such thing as a magic-educational-potion for all kids, at all times, in all places. To broadbrush one option with "this is what these people are like" is as inaccurate as it would be to take a paint roller and go over your windows. Its as inaccurate as saying all Calvinists are arrogant, or all free willers are this way, or all Canadians sit around and drink beer and say "eh" all day long. It's unbalanced, inaccurate, and unfair. I would strongly caution anyone from giving an ear to a critique or observation of any one of these educational choices that places a heavy emphasis against one of them, in favor for another.

This was posted at Pulpit Live a few days ago, and really gave me pause for thought. In fact, this very subject has been the dominating topic of lengthy conversations in my house for the last 3 days running. It is near and dear to my heart because this is what I do. Homeschooling my kids is just as much a part of my life as cooking dinner every night, doing the laundry or running errands. It's a choice we made after several years of research, study, prayer, discussion and consideration - so I do not take it lightly.
