I have no idea… lol.
Over the years, I have known many who homeschool and who have been homeschooled. In general, all I can say in terms of whether it is a good idea or not is that it totally depends on the situation — I have seen it work brilliantly, seen it been a near-disaster, and more-often-than-not somewhere in between.
If you are interested in the topic of homeschooling, you should check out the blog LearnMeProject. It is documenting the journey of a family just starting to homeschool and should make for both good reading and good discussion.
