In his new book, "Public Schools, Public Menace," author Joel Turtel talks about parents' fears and questions about homeschooling.

Suppose that you rearrange your life to homeschool your child and the experiment fails? You may feel that youíve disrupted your life and wasted a year of your childís time. Your child may even be kept back a grade by the local public school.

The answer to this concern is, can you risk not trying? Isnít your childís future worth the risk? If you see that your child is getting a bad education in public school, the worst thing to do is nothing. Then there is no chance of improvement. If you leave your children in public school, chances are good that their ability to read, self-esteem, and love of learning may be damaged, and they can waste twelve years of their lives. Look at the potential consequences to your child if you donít try other education alternatives.

The real question is this: Is good enough, good enough for your child? Your child is unique and precious. He or she is born with a love of learning and a unique potential. Your childís love of learning, self-confidence, and potential can be squashed in the rigid atmosphere of public schools. Is a third-rate public-school education good enough for your child. If you could give your child a rich, fun, rewarding education that will make your childís mind and future blossom, isnít that worth the risk of trying?

If the only problem is money because you canít afford $8000 a year private schools, then happily there is a great new option for you ó Internet private schools. These schools are low-cost and can give your child a fun, quality, and rewarding education. Many of these schools cost less than $850 a year tuition, which is less than $85 a month for a ten-month school year.

While no one can guarantee you success, like anything else in life, if you keep trying, you will probably succeed in giving your child a great education at home. If you say to yourself, "I will make this work, for my childís sake," youíll be surprised at what you can accomplish. Tell yourself what Gene Kranz, actor Ed Harrisís character in the movie Apollo 13, said to his Houston crew about rescuing the astronauts in trouble: "Failure is not an option." If you say this and mean it, youíre halfway to success for yourself and your child.
