Yes, I homeschool my children and encourage everyone else to.

No, it isn't a matter that some schools are good and some are bad.  Schooling 
itself is bad and there is no good version of it.  What passes for "good" 
schools are only those that do a little less regimentation and indoctrination.  
It's like saying there are good burglers and bad burglers because the good ones 
only take part of your valuables.  Yet neither is the same as no one breaking 
into your house at all.

Sure communities function when its members have attended public school.  
Plantations functioned too although most people there were slaves.  But it doesn't 
follow that slavery was  a good thing.

And look at your premise, if you don't like the schools, then change them.  
That's the manipulation technique used by bad parents who want to coerce their 
child into dressing for the hated visit to Anut Petunia by engaging them with 
"Do you want to wear the yellow shirt or the blue shirt."  The idea is to put 
the child in the position of having a false choice in the matter, a typical 
schooling technique.  What the child wants is to not go to Aunt Petunia's at all.
