In short yes I am qualified, we are very involved parents and I believe that a child left to depend on the education system without guidance from their parents is at a huge disadvantage. Teachers are wonderful and we are lucky to have them, but they cannot educate every child with the individual attention they need without a parents help.
My sister is a teacher and I truly believe in the school system. I don't think my child would benefit from home schooling if it were for more than a few years, she is kind of shy and would benefit from interaction from children of her own age. The experience she will gain from traveling has played into our decision as well, we don't take it lightly. She is going in the third grade this year and will be a fourth grader next year. Too much past that and I might be in trouble haha.
