Why Homeschool

Those that know me, are aware that I've been thinking for several years about homeschooling my kids.  I'm excited to finally be at a point where it feels right for our family and to give it a try.  While there are many reasons for this decision, I wanted to share this video I first saw several years ago.  I think it really illustrates some of the problems we have in our education system today.  Hopefully this will help a few of you with that question of "why?"

Here's also a great blog post written by KATHLEEN BERCHELMANN, M.D., entitled:

 It's definitely worth the read.  While I'm still new to it all, I agree with her assessments so far!  

I'm planning on adding more later to this post, but in the mean time, what are your thoughts on homeschool?
