I think if we just compare costs of home schooling to public schooling, we are overlooking alot of other things in the arsenal of home schooling.  What is the 'cost' of a parent spending time, bonding, laughing, helping, discussing with their children?  What is the 'true' cost of daycare in how it substitues an underpaid worker for a parent in relation to guidance, support, nurturing, etc?

Although I totally agree that the monetary cost of home schooling is less then that of public schooling... money alone won't convince others to 'risk' trying it or voting for it.

Obviously.

Part of the problem with our society is that parants really aren't responsible for paranting anymore.

Everybody else is.

yes Tracy, and this explains our (yours and mine) political philosophy - bigger government = less personal responsibility in ALL areas (not just education)
