Which Is Really More Expensive: Public School or Homeschool?

When I attended public school as a child,  I never thought about how much money my mom had to spend to make that a reality. My biggest concern was getting the right outfits and shoes for my first day of school.

Now that I’m a parent, budgeting is something I have to consider. Having tried both homeschooling and public schooling for my own children, I’ve learned firsthand the different costs associated with both methods. My personal experiences have clearly answered the question Which is really more expensive: public school or homeschool? The answers for others may differ, depending on their personal educational goals.
