Yes. No matter how we as parents choose to educate our children for a spell, we are in charge. I think that homeschooling my children early on brought this home to me. If we put them in a public school, that's what were choosing as the directors of their education for that time. If we choose to take them out for a spell, that's what we're choosing as the directors of their educations.
If problems occur in their public education stint, my children know that the system is not the arbiter. My husband and I are. We decide. Parents decide. We are not subject to school rules. We control our children's education.
