The great thing is that it's not too-late to change the paradigm. As we learn of the challenges in a public-system which had lead to many problems and challenges for our youth - we can see that there must be a better way.
Why Homeschool? Because it provides the greatest opportunity for growth, personal reflection time, inner-strength (instead of compulsory means) and....abilities to become what a person is meant to become.
A 'system' which teaches all children the same things at the same time, and at the same 'grade level' is not a personalized plan for development. Which of us, as adults, would like to spend our day in the exact same way as others' around us? We'd never become the unique creatures that we were meant to become.
If all plants and animals were exactly alike - what joy would there be in loving those that we feel a kinship to? We're drawn to certain things at particular times in our lives - for our own growth and fulfillment. We weren't meant to be a cattle-call - branded by 'someone' (or some archaic system) who thinks they know what's best for us.
