So I'm 14 (Io m the oldest kid in the family) and I have a brother and two sisters and have been homeschooled by our mom our hole life but this year our mom wants all of us to go to public school because my brother and our youngest sister argue a lot and it stresses my mom out to much but she says that if one of us does public school then all of us have to go to public school. I really dono t want to go to public school because I dono t want to get in to all the stupid stuff people do there. I also dono t want to go because I am apart of a homeschool robotics group that I would have to leave. So if you are in highschool and are in publicschool/homeschool or been in both please tell me which is better.

Go to a private school. Public schools you get bullies, posionos food(jk, but it seems like it), strict teachers, and people who don't give a shit about you.

[color=rgb(51,51,51)][bgcolor=rgb(236,244,255)]Public school is a very bad environment though, it creates lots of issues, you will encounter a lot of bad things so you gotta be strong, i'm 17 and I've been home schooled my whole life and it's been a blessing, my saying is that I would spend your senior high school year in public school or junior but not the first few years.[/bgcolor][/color]

well said. I'm 17 as well, I have had a taste of everything, and being home-schooled in my early youth (even though it's illegal in the Netherlands, can you believe it?) was the best time of my life
rock1234... you have no idea what you have unchained. there is a veritable war going on in the thread you started.
my advice: since you have built up a life in your homeschooled situation, I advise you not to leave it. it would be a miserable time for you, and you'll regret it all your life.
since your siblings are the problem, let your mum send them to a public school. you should stay homeschooled. If your mum does not want to teach you (which I might understand, given the effort required), ask her to arrange a distance-learning package for you. there are plenty of these available, most costing only a few hundred euros (same in dollars, just a bit more) for a small range of subjects (math, biology, etc.), and giving you a tutor for each into the bargain.
this is better than going to public school. for her too, since she won't have to take you there (assuming you can't use public transport to get there).

if she refuses, tell me her arguments, and I will match them word for word, and then a bit.
contact me for further advice. I want to prevent you from making the same mistakes I made.

That's very good Fantasymaster, yeah look for a lot of self teaching courses, there are tons. When I reached highschool my mom set me up on self-teaching textbooks, courses, and online classes so she really doesn't have to do anything with me at all just keep track of where I am in school and making sure I keep caught up on self teaching textbooks. This really is a lot less of a burden then a public school environment..

one home study that I am curently using, and that I advise as well, is NEC international. it is a British-based course, but it is given anywhere in the world. I am currently doing high level math there, and whenever I run into a problem, my tutor explains it so easily, she takes about 30 min. to explain what most public school teachers take 4 hours for. I might be just lucky, but something tells me this is how it always works.
if you don't ahve a tutor, distance teacher or they can't explain something, I recommmend KhanAcademy, this is a tutorial website with tutorials on just about any beta subject (math&science) , and a number of alpha ones (language, history, etc.). the tutorials are almost all made by one man, but he explains it so well that he takes 1 video of 15 min. to explain (and give examples) what a teacher would do in 2 lessons, with a lot of homework.
it is also possible to practise certain things, though this is currently limited to math. but this is the website that got me through my years of public school, with good grades.
