Yes and not only that, the long hours away from family in a class of thirty with a stressed teacher is terrible. Childhood should be joyful and spent with family.

I assume that you don't have children of your own. Then you'd know how much more terrible it is to spend long hours with a stressed parent.

I'm pretty sure I would kill my kids if I had to spend all day with them every day. I love them, but it definitely would not end well for any party involved.

I am saddened to see how many siblings seem disconnected because of the long hours apart
Most siblings are grateful for being apart, because they despise each other.

Better relationships among siblings is actually one of the benefits of homeschooling. Fast paced lifestyles and the hours they spend apart at school is one of the reasons many siblings do not get along.
