As for books that discuss public schooling today & why you might not want to use the public school system, you could check out Dumbing Down our Kids and Dumbing us Down for starters. I see Amazon has several other related books listed as well.

I homeschooled as a kid, and had a good experience with it. My mother and father were just not to happy with mainstream education and we lived a bit out of town, so we homeschooled. It certainly has its ups and downs. I have gone between homeschooling and sending my kids to school because I want a fair medium.
