A lot of people are doing that now. They probably get a better education but miss out on socialization. They need to be involved in activities with other kids to replace what they would have gotten from schools.
Not hard to do, and most homeschool kids do get plenty of socialization.
Growing up, I played soccer, did vocabulary competitions, group classes at the Y, etc. Always had something to do.

The stereotype that homeschoolers lack socialization is mostly a myth. Most of us turn out happy, and without a lot of the problems that publicly schooled kids get.

If you live in a large city in a poor neighborhood the school's are horrible and the parents don't value education or work on homework with kids. Those parents believe it's the school job not their's to educate their own kids. Not everyone but mostly. My son lives in a great school district in second grade doing 3rd grade math and reading. His cousin lives in a horrible school district and in second grade they are still teaching the kids English and won't be doing fractions until 5th or 6th grade.

The home schoolers get together often. Go to and share activities on a regular basis. They can also participate in sports at the public school.
