Why I Want to Homeschool Reason #2

There are so many things I want my children to learn that the public and private schools don't teach:

1. Local history
2. More in-depth American history
3. Religions (I think it's important for my children to know about other religions besides Christianity)
4. More hands-on learning
5. Labor and trade skills
6. Instead of sports in Phys. Ed. why not learn about physical fitness as a whole
7. More in-depth music and art, depending on the child's interest

Learning at home provides them with such a wide span of exploration that public and private schools can't provide because they have to generalize.
