How many people choose to homeschool their PA child(ren)because they are afraid of exposure at school?

I took part in a debate yesterday at Parent's Place where I was told I was an irresponsible idiot for not wanting to homeschool my child. I was told that if peanuts were so much of a risk I shouldn't let them into public school. I was told a lot of other things (mostly nasty and vicious, but never mind.

So, I'm just wondering if this is an option many people choose or don't choose and why.

Also, I strongly urge you to check out the Peanut Ban debate thread at Parent's Place. I think you will be shocked at the hostility, bigotry and complete ignorance of a good number of people (like the ones who said they would send their kids to school with peanuts on purpose now if there was a child with a PA in the school). Please see my post below "Shocking Debate at Parent's Place". It has the links.
