home school vs public - advice needed
Hi, first time poster for this particular forum. This question is from a relative, and would surely appreciate your advice:
My relative just found out her bid was accepted on a house but earliest she can close is October 1st. Since this is in a new school district (which she really likes), and their schools don't start until September 8th, she can't decide what to do among these 3 options:
1. start school where she lives now (on Tuesday after Labor Day) and then switch schools after moving
2. Make a mad dash next week to try to enroll and start kids in new school district on the 8th, and then shuttle them back and forth for 3 weeks (about 60 miles round trip). (this may or may not work out anyway -- might not be enough time)
3. Forget about public school for this semester; home school and then start kids either next semester or next year in new school district. She home-schooled before, but not all of the 4 kids were born/school age when she did.
Which scenario would you choose and why?
