    In any case, I know several people who are in that 28% where religion was not a factor.

    The numbers on their own aren't worth much because the possible answers can fit within each other. If I say I could provide a much better education for my kid than schools, but this is because I believe my religion can provide better teachings then my answer isn't entirely honest now is it? The numbers are probably MUCH higher than 72%. This possibility is explored in my link.

    Except that 72% was just the number for which religion was a factor, which fits your scenario perfectly. When it's the primary factor, the number drops to 30%.

    How is it anyone else's business what a parent teaches their kids as long as they teach them the basics, too? Oh, right . . . it's not.

    What difference does it make whether it is religious or not? You make it sound like you would rather have a child schooled outside of the home so that the religion of the parent could not be taught to the child.

    Parents send kids to parochial schools etc, so home schooling would make no difference as far as religion goes.

    No. I'd rather kids go to school with dedicated professionals 5 days a week and then if they want, go to religious school on the weekend. Home schooling is simply religious bull**** being fed to us by the right wing that doesn't want kids being taught that God plays absolutely no role in osmosis or Pythagorean theory.

    Good. Send them to parochial schools where there is at the very least a vetting process that ensures the people teaching aren't complete religious nuts. My wife went to a catholic school. They are nothing like home schooling. At all. Forgive me for being weary of any religious person who thinks they can teach science better than schools.

    No. Your inability to read is amazing :

    According to a 2001 U.S. Census survey, 33% of homeschooling households cited religion as a factor in their choice. The same study found that 30% felt school had a poor learning environment, 14% objected to what the school teaches, 11% felt their children were not being challenged at school, and 9% cited morality.[20]
    It has nothing to do with "primary" factors. Please read. And that number does not drop to anything. One study is by the census the other is by the DoE. One study allows for a single option and once again these options are flawed in the end. If I believe the schooling conditions are poor in schools and I'd do a better job, I don't have to put religion as a factor now do I? It is just another case of Christian smokescreen for true intent.

    My son has had practically zero religious instruction in our homeschooling environment.

    Your a little loose with your definition of "professional" as well.

    Government schools are the best places to find drugs, stolen merchandise, to be marginalized for being smart and many other great things.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Public schools are relevant in spotting incest, pedophilia, and general child abuse.
