we have homeschooled for years, had some late readers who don't know that they were and therefore were not distinguished from their peers because of it. my second oldest just graduated from college and he was homeschooled from the fifth grade. we have a loosely organized approach, we follow the children's interests mostly (other than core subjects such as math, english, etc) and it worked wonders for five active, curious boys who would rather be outside climbing rocks.
  we are babies in permaculture, just getting our feet wet. i have learned a lot just lurking about on the board, reading the posts. i appreciate everyone's input.

  Very interesting discussion on home-schooling. I did not realize there were 
so many home-schooled people out there. I don't have children and I'm 
reaching and age where I'm thinking less of having a family and more about 
early retirement. But if I did have children I would certainly give serious 
consideration to home-schooling.
