Yes I am,and I believe that it is good that kids,especially adventist kids be homschooled,know ever I am of the opinion that we should be at least have good outside awareness. I've heard of kids who where homeschooled and then Ghent to academy and hade a hard time fitting in. :(
Just my thoughts

I got to a public school. Even if I could afford an Adventist school HVA is a boarding school and don't know what i'd do without my bed (too comfy)
Atholton school has too many racist stories and i'm black so no
and crossroads just shut down (never make your entire teaching staff from the same family. they'll all pack up and leave for Atlanta making your school teacher less)
cuz liberalism is a mental disease and video games are awesome

I go to public school now. I attended an SDA elementary school, then was home schooled from 5th grade to 10th grade. Public school can be difficult, spiritually, but I feel like my particular school gives me a really good education. I'm glad I didn't start out in public school, because I wouldn't have had a foundation and my faith would have been destroyed. That's just me, personally, though.

I'm going to Collegedale Academy :) and I have several friends who are homeschooled and like it, it just wasn't for me. I'm glad you had a positive experience.

What's "real" school? 'cause in reality home schooling came first so technically home schooling is "normal" :whistle:

Real school is where you learn things from someone qualified to teach and actually knows what they're talking about and can help you if you need it. My mom couldn't tell me anything about algebra or geometry, I had to search the Internet for hours trying to answer any questions I had for science worded in a way I could understand, and for history I read library books that made history seem more like a list of names, dates, and places rather than a big story. Now that I'm going to an academy, I can understand math, science makes sense, and history isn't nearly as dull and useless as I thought it was. I wrote my first essay on the eighth day of school, and I was supposed to already know how to write one but my mom never taught me and I doubt she knew anyways. Everyone's experience is different and everyone has different needs and wants which is why there are different options. Why go to a 'real' school if you enjoy homeschooling AND are actually doing well with it? On the flip side, why homeschool if you aren't learning anything and you don't even want to? Why go to a public school if you feel a Christian school woulda be a better experience? On the flip side, why go to a Christian school if you feel called to go to a public school? One of the religion teachers at my school felt she should go to a public school even though she was at a nice Adventist school, so she went. She ended up leading several classmates and even a teacher to Christ! Every situation is different. There is no right or wrong choice, only what you feel is best for you.

BOTH are untrue.

Studies have shown that parent's education when homeschooling has nothing(or very little) to do with the child's performance.
However, in public school, it is just the opposite.

Oh, and talk about social life! Homeschool groups,church friends, co-ops, kids in the neighborhood,internet friends,penpals,etc,etc,etc.
Any one who is sociable can have a good social life.

You are so right awesomeA!!!! But it is OK if a group gets together and learn together. WITH THE PARENTS AS TEACHERS!

How was homeschooling part of God's plan? Just curious.

Because, God planned the parents to teach their children. Because other people sometimes treat them like the parents do not want to teach their children. It is also good so that the teacher will not teach something against the parents. Hope that helps.

I'm homeschooled.
Politics and the Christian faith should be combined. So I am now against Hillary as well as Trump. I can no longer support a homo supporting baby-killer. Nor can I support an unrepentant adulterer. God will judge them both.

I mean, I do online school... does that count? Cause ever since my move, we're doing a distance learning thing. It's also Adventist ^O^ And also Adventist online school, and the NAD also acknowledged us at a gathering that we are actually a really amazing school and 100% online.
Even though it has its downsides, like no social interaction much, extra curricular is hard to get, and it's more independent ( maybe not a downside). But we have live classes and all that, and you can get all the homework done (sometimes) on your own time. It's pretty good. The spiritual component is really amazing too.
This is also why I'm going to be more active on Guide more :P
But I still miss my brick and mortar school, I loved having friends and hanging and
