Have you asked him what he thinks or how he feels about it? Personally, I wouldn't let an 8 yo make that kind of educational decision, but perhaps he has insight one way or the other that would help you in your/DH's decision.

I'm not trying to sway you one way or the other, but I just know that when I was preggo, every thing seemed like this insurmountable task when I thought about adding another baby to it. I'm chalking it up to hormones. In the end, I just kept putting one foot in front of the other and it was ok.
DS is behind in math and phonics/spelling. I think its because of the one on one teaching time. I know that he won't get much one on one time but I think when the teacher teaches a lesson and students can ask questions is more of what I'm missing here.

And we have discussed going to a school before with him and he seems open to it. He has told me he wants sit down school time more.
I've asked DH if he would teach a course in the late afternoon and he seems open to it
