Why do we home educate?

It is interesting that every day it seems there are more and more reasons to home educate. Violence in schools. Constantly shifting curricula. Drugs in school, including over-emphasis on Ritalin, et al. And now?

Gas prices.

Heavens, $4 a gallon for gas? School districts across the country are freaking out, pulling hair to try to find sufficient funds for buses. Home school? No need to transport the kids miles away from home to educate. Field trips? We can do some fine field trips within walking distance or using the internet and streaming video and we can visit numerous aquariums, zoos and animal parks throughout the world.

Yet again, home education rocks!
