We had issues with the public school not being able to address the educational needs of our younger daughter who was extremely dyslectic. She had reached 3rd grade and was still struggling with learning the alphabet. Plus our older daughter was a 4.0 student but her one daughter wanted to hold her back because she was "too respectful and did not question authority" so there was obviously something wrong with her. (She had no clue that our much of our daughter's respectfulness was actually her sneaking way of driving the teacher nuts.)
So we decided to pull them out of school and home school. We did the same from day 1 with both our sons when they reached school ages.
The younger daughter was reading above her grade within six months. And is a bookworm who reads everything she can get her hands on today. She and her sister started q photography business that they ran for many years with her doing all the business, bookkeeping, payroll, etc. The others are successful and have good careers in other areas.
The laws on home schooling are different for every state. And sometimes from school district to school district. The state we lived in allowed home schooling with nothing more than a notification to the district at the beginning of each year. Other states are much stricter and some do not allow it at all. You will need to check the laws for your state and district.
There are many curriculums for home schooling. Most are religious in nature, but there are some good secular ones. They are not "hard" but they do require "time". Someone has to spend the time needed to go through the lessons with the lessons with the child(ren). Most homeschooled children can complete their days work in a couple of hours. Some of the curriculums are computer based. The child does all the work on line.
There are many home school support groups that can help with issues you have. Some will offer extras (like I did math tutoring and a weekly computer class for many years.) including sports and field trips. There are also many local colleges that will allow home schoolers to complete the first couple years of college while they are still in high school. They can graduate already having half of their college competed. Often the cost is a fraction of what actual college tuition is.
One of the most common issues with home schooling is that children do not get as much socialization when they home school. This can be met by involving them in sports (the school has to let them be on the team even if they are home schooled) and various types of clubs like Scouts, 4H, etc.
We hone schooled all four of our kids and three of them are now homeschooling their kids. (The fourth is still single.) So apparently they did not think they were abused or missed out on anything by being home schooled.
