It depends on the child.
All kids should attend regular school.
It's not just for religious fanatics anymore.
All kids should be home schooled.

It *can* be a very useful way of educating a child or children.

Too often the kids emerge naive and cult like. For example, the Duggar kids on "19 Kids and Counting" get too much crazy right wing religion, and not enough actual education. They're anti-choice fanatics at such young ages and get called out for tweeting nonsense comparing an abortion to the Holocaust. More exposure to the real world would be good when your parents are also too sheltered. Give your kids a chance.

School isn't only about getting an education, children need to learn how to interact with other children and other adults - so my opinion is that all children should attend school.

It depends on the parents and the kids. I think it deprives children of important social interactions.

not sure they would have the quality education they need, they need the interaction of other students to get along in life.
