My husband and I are trying to adopt our grandson.  His foster parents  also 
want to adopt him.  It's a long story but we have fought CYF for his  custody 
for almost 3 years.  We are concerned because the foster  parents plan to home 
school him and as educators my husband and  I have both dealt with home 
schooled students who enter public  school belatedly with significant academic and 
social weaknesses.
Is anyone aware of specific studies that support public schooling as  opposed 
to home schooling?  I'd appreciate your response offline if you are  aware of 
resources I can refer to our lawyer.
Thanks so much.
