Homeschooling is an interesting topic for me. I can never decide whether it's wonderful or awful. Perhaps due to the lack of consistent standards. It can be a deep, personal, detailed, experiential education. Or it can be doing lots of workbooks. I've known a couple families that did a good job with it but a lot of people don't. I don't ever intend to have children, so I suppose I won't be making that decision. I think it would consider it for a young child, to start out with the basics and then send them off after a year or two. Peer interaction is valuable. As is learning from more than one teacher. The families that homeschooled successfully did things like hire tutors, join a homeschool coop, take lots of educational field trips. A full and even diverse (relative to other home schoolers) experience.
