Home Another Year Or Not?

I got a form in the mail recently to send in notice of homeschooling for the coming year. My problem is that I don't know if I should keep D home or not. There are benefits both ways and detriments to both ways as well.

It feels like I have to decide between the social environment of school which I don't approve of, or no social environment at all. Then the education; yes, at home I can tailor his curriculum for what he needs, but at home he has less opportunities. I could do a lot more than I do so I suppose he COULD have the same opportunities but I'd like him to have input from more than just me. Homeschooling just one is so very different from having a houseful of boys working together.
