I home schooled my kids for several years when we traveled with a construction worker dad/spouse. I recommend it if you have a good curriculum. We did PACs and the kids were tested at the start and end of each year. They were tested before we began the process and where they tested is where they started, i.e. 2nd grade math, 4th grade English, etc. No sliding by if they didn't like what they needed to learn; we kept at it till they got it. Funny thing...they did well and could get all their work done by noon which gave us time to get out and explore and learn about the world around us. They went back to public school when the oldest 2 were in high school; they were all tested before public school would place them. My oldest 2 tested about freshman in college and my 6th grader tested high school senior. About 3 months after going back to public school, they wanted to get back into home schooling but I had started nursing school by then.
