It can be, it really depends on which curriculum you use. If you are doing internet school, it is harder. I think the level of difficulty of homeschooling depends on who you are and how motivated you are. A very good math curriculum is called "Saxon Math".

There really is no correct answer to that, as it just depends on what curriculum you use, if you use one.

Meaning no offense in saying this, but I think that public schools' approach to learning is very ineffective. They are loading kids down with homework, and it's getting them no where. I am a homeschooled kid myself, and cannot stand to be around public schooled kids my age because they are just so stupid (compared to me anyway). The way public schools are approaching learning is what I would call "the memorizing method". They drill facts and theories and equations into kids' heads until they memorize it. This is a HORRIBLE way to learn. Have you ever heard more than 10 kids say that they LOVE learning at school? No, not school, LEARNING at school. You can easily say "Hahaha! Who would say that anyway?!?!? Everyone dislikes learning! It's just NOT FUN!". Actually, the way we are learning is not fun. When we are little, before we've been taught that we disike learning, we want to get into everything! Touch, feel, taste, listen, smell, EVERYTHING! People are naturally curious and do, indeed, like learning. Learning should be fun, hands-on, and interesting to us.

I won't argue with you that some homeschoolers are idiots. I will also agree that there are some complete genuises who have gone to public school. It just depends on YOU.

I would say that public school is harder, because there is usually a lot more work. But on average, homeschoolers are smarter.

It's not harder than public.

I am home schooled on my computer with a program called CAVA (California Virtual Academies) they have a program with k12 an online homeschooling program.

Is home schooling a better option than public schooling?

Home schooling has its pros and cons. You can give your child a better education than some public schools can offer, but you also take away a majority of the life lessons your child would learn in a regular school. For me, homeschooling was ten times better than the regular school system. I got a ten times better education than the public school system (which is a joke), anyone with half a brain can do better than the public education system. I was also protected from the harshness of the school yard which I am immensely grateful for. And all my life lessons where taught from my mother anyway, all school taught me to do was to swear and have sex with random people. My mother also made sure I never missed out on opportunities to socialize with people I liked. I got all the socializing of a regular high-schooler without all the teasing etc. of the normal school yard and a better education to boot. I think homeschooling is a very good idea and I am speaking as one who has gone through both homeschooling and normal school (til grade 10).
