Home, Public, and Christian School

I know it's summer, but in light of our series on education options (you can start with Why Public School, and follow the links to the others posts), I thought it would be worthwhile to include a link to a similar series.

Sam Luce not only gave his pros and cons on each choice, but also gives five tips to remember as you discern what is best for your family:
  1. Pray.
  2. Take the educational process one kid at a time one year at a time.
  3. Openly and honestly consider the positives and negatives.
  4. Why you do what you do matters.
  5. Never assume what you are doing is the ONLY way.

This last point can be a particular hot topic among Christian families. After comparing the options we have decided to home school our children (which has been beneficial for us in this season), but I would not say that this is the best choice for all families. That is the case I presented in A Response to "A Case for Homeschooling." And even more, we are not even sure how many years we'll home school (to go along with Luce's point #2).

Let's here from you:  Are you making any new educational choices for your children this coming school? A new school, or new curriculum?
