Homeschooling: The Next Generation

SpunkyHomeschool is having a discussion on whether homeschooling parents expect/hope for their grandchildren to be homeschooled. One commenter notes that most of her children's homeschooled friends do not expect to homeschool their own children. She wonders how general this trend is. And now, so do I.

I know there's several of you who were homeschooled yourself and who plan to homeschool your own kids. So I have several questions. First, why? Is it more experience based or conviction based? Is it for the same reasons your parents homeschooled or totally different reasons?

Second, Do you find yourself unusual among your homeschooled friends? Do they plan to homeschool? And if they don't, what do you think the difference is?

And how do you feel about your grandkids being homeschooled?

Of course, if you want to comment on how you'd never subject your children to the horror of homeschooling you went through, that'd be interesting to hear, too. Just keep it civil, to those present and absent.
