Is homeschooling against the rules?

In dealing with a family where the public school child has NO CHANCE of passing the school year, the only option I could see as an answer was homeschooling.

Maybe my approach is a bit drastic, but failure to such a degree at half year, could only spell out disaster at the end of the year.

In the end, the parents decided to grin and bear it, feeling like homeschooling was somehow breaking the rules... cheating the system

Maybe I'm a radical, but at what point do you stop following rules when they are not working for your kids?

Aren't some of the most successful people in the world rule breakers? Consider this example:"Rule breakers bust up business models. They explode in an industry by offering a new paradigm so compelling in its benefits that it simply cannot be ignored. By virtue of the insanely great value proposition of their offers (think Apple in 1985, Amazon in 1996), they quickly redefine their industries and instantly change the norm. Recently, examples of this would be Autobytel and E*Trade. Rule breakers often cause a shift that carries organizations to new, unexplored territories." (from Risk strategies: Are you a rule breaker, shaker, maker, or taker? )
