I was schooled in Catholic schools from grade school through high school; but schools were much different back then. Today, many have really watered-down their religious education to the point of being almost non-existent. I sent my son to a Catholic grade school until it closed at the end of his 6th grade year. I home-schooled him from 7th grade through high school and my only regret is that I didn't start sooner! It was a wonderful experience for our family. I do highly recommend joining a support group, at least the first year or so. It really helped us to feel more confident both about our decision to home school and to learn about and share resources and friendship with other home schooling families. While I will agree that it's not for every family, it should at least be considered an option. Some states do make it easier than others to home school. Fortunately, Wisconsin is a good state in which to home school.

Homeschooling all the way. In a public school a bunch of people the same age are all put in one area together with no other age groups so the students don't learn how to socialize with peole of different age groups and there is so much pressure for everyone to be a certain way that there is no individuality amongst the students. Not to mention I wouldn't want to have to deal with my kids learning all the garbage that a lot of the kids talk about. My cousins in the first grade are hearing the other students talk about sex and homosexuality out on the playgrounds! FIRST GRADE!!!
