What's your homeschool story?

In 2020, homeschooling exploded world-wide due to the COVID-19 outbreak. For many students and parents, it was an educational option they’d never considered. But now that they’ve tried it, a lot of families discovered they kind of like it—but now they’re wondering “Can I continue homeschooling? Should I continue?” What would it mean for college and career opportunities? Friends? Prom? Sports?
