    IMO, home schooling is a big mistake. But that's another topic.
    If I have children I will be home schooling all of them. So much time is wasted in the public school system. There is so much untapped potential in our children that is being wasted because of the terrible education system.

    Having literally grown-up with the home school, advanced school, cutting edge private schools debate I don't think any one way is 'better'. Some have faster starts, but I remember cognitive tests showing by early adulthood the field gets leveled again. The kids who MIGHT benefit from intense one-on one schooling are very rare. Kids who have amazing memories could digest a massive rote memory education, making them arcane mavens. Some benefit is gained by attempting to teach broad skills such as organization, leadership, confidence- the drawback is the child in question needs to be compatible with the skill set- can't teach a dyslexic to be card counter.

    Smart kids learn and excel in most any stable environment, kids isolated from their peers tend to fall apart easier when tossed into the mix... (I'd mention we have had a few of those types in here)

    On which graduate to hire- home school or public school... I think I'd listen to someone who HAS hired and fired people over the years.

    I look at attitude more than 'education' as few are taught all they need to know in a school. Anyone you get you need to adapt to your system. Attitude goes a long way there. Know-it-alls don't adapt well.
