Ok, I have to add to this.

We home school our children(well my wife does the majority of it), and we 
made this decision after lots of research into the pros and cons of each.

WOW!  So are you saying the public school system did so well, that 9 out of 
10 parents that attended the public school system do not have the smarts to 
teach their own children or make enough money to buy the resources.  I guess 
the public school system has done a great job.   Ok, now lets talk about 
Universities.  Universities compete!  Yep, they compete for students.  In 
public schools your child usually only has one choice or two.  Hmmm.

So no it is not the interest of the community to educate my children, it is 
mine.  I take responsibility for my children and their behavior and their 
education and prep them for their future.  To give them the skills necessary 
to survive in the global community.
