I was home-schooled for K, then mom found out she was having twins, so she sent us to real school for 3 years, then hs for 4-6 grade, then real schooled 7 and 8, 9 and 10 hs, and probably hs for 11 and 12 too.

I never was home schooled. I've always gone to a normal school.

BTW: What's the difference between a public and a private school? Aren't all schools the same?
My projects
 - The Lost Survivors (Unreal Engine) ACTIVE [GameCommandoSquad main project]
 - Oxo, with single-calc multiplayer and AI (axe) RELEASED (screenshot) (topic)
 - An android version of oxo (java)  ACTIVE
 - A 3D collision detection library (axe) RELEASED! (topic)(screenshot)(more recent screenshot)(screenshot of it being used in a tilemapper)
Spoiler For inactive:
- A first person shooter with a polygon-based 3d engine. (z80, will probably be recoded in axe using GLib) ON HOLD (screenshot)
 - A java MORPG. (pc) DEEP COMA(read more)(screenshot)
 - a minecraft game in axe DEAD (source code available)
 - a 3D racing game (axe) ON HOLD (outdated screenshot of asm version)

Well you have to pay to go to a private school and public schools are free to attend to.

Also, I was never home schooled.

OK, Then I'm in private school. If a public school is free, then I don't think there are any public schools in this country.

OK. I don't know if your country has a public school system. public school is provided by the govt, and you pay for it with your taxes. private school you pay tuition.

Homeschooling is COOL! I wake up about 8, get on here, do khanacademy.org and some other educational websites, do some exercises in books, and thats a school day. Today I'm already finished math, Literature, etc. so I'm experimenting with python right now. I keep an eye on omni all day long. Its a nice life.

You go at your own pace, so I'm in calculus and Physics and 11th grade English.

Being free must be pretty nice. But I believe being homeschooled has its downsides also. For example you miss most of the social aspect of going to school (i.e. making friends is harder, poorer social skills), but I wouldn't be surprised if that wouldn't be a problem for many people. How about higher education? How does a homeschooled person prove a university he is qualified enough to enroll?

I'm doing exams in Brussels, to prove I'm good enough :p
4 of my sisters that have done home schooling are now in University/High School.
The social aspect isn't so bad, as we know a couple of other families that also do homeschooling.
