Which Education System is Best?

For the past 10 years I have ventured in and out of the various education systems: home schooling, online schooling, private schooling and most recently public schooling.

In naivety, I sought an “ideal system” of education for my now 12-year-old son; the cons of one system driving me towards the pros of another.

I’ve come to the conclusion that there is no single faultless and flawless education system. The strengths of one system cannot always be brought into the mix and fold of another system’s organizational structure.
