Homeschool vs. Public School

How do you mommies feel about Homeschool vs. Public School??? Our son that is now in the first grade this year was a homeschooler last year. The kind of homeschool our son had was through a charter school (I loved it:-) It was a great program. Our son was of course a kindergartner, middle ways through the year he was reading at a high first grade, low second grade reading level (this was awesome:-)... He did have a teacher assigned to him, that he would see once a week (but all in all, I was his teacher:-). Our son is now in Public School this year; the reason my hubby and I decided to do homeschool last year. Was because there were no schools close to where we live (they were building a school about two blocks from our house). So now the school year is here (and well on its way), and the public school that they were building is now open. We decided to do public school this year, I have to say I'm not so sure. You would think for a school that just opened this year, would be trying really hard to prove they are going to be a great school. I'm sad to say a lot of the parents including my hubby and I are becoming disappointed. You have probably heard different stories, or your probably going through it your self.

I would love your input mommies? Please share how you feel...
