Reason to homeschool: To teach your children about money. Teach Kids About Money....Or You'll Pay For It! (Steve Moitozo has a few more reasons to homeschool here)

Reason to homeschool: To protect your children from lead poisoning. School district ignored lead hazard. Lead-tainted water in Seattle schools stuns parents has more information.

Reason to homeschool: Because school lunches aren't always safe. Elizabeth Lane Lawley gives the details in another reason to homeschool.
