I have yet to meet a homeschooler who wasn't an insular and antisocial dick.

I know plenty, and am engaged to one. That being said "antisocial" does describe pretty much all of them.

I suppose when you fear that your children are falling under the sway of evil communist muslim homosexual atheist transvestites from Transexual translvania the only way to free them is with home schooling.

I don't think they're all religiously motivated (though plenty are), but it does seem to boil down to one of the parents wanting to have an absurd amount of control over their kids lives.

Even with a secular curriculum, parents and private teachers cannot match the depth and breadth of knowledge exposure of a private, public, or charter school. There's also the lack of a venue to develop social skills.

I'd rather 50+ biased teachers over a 13 year period than 1 vested interest corrupting me for life.

I'd have a bigger issue if the majority of homeschoolers were just those that want to keep their kids from learning the truth about the world.

This is why I'm for a ban of it. Even with 50+ teachers being biased, the biases willvary. All you get with homeschooling is one biased perspective and no one to challenge your notions or beliefs.

I'm not saying all homeschoolers are worse. Im sure there are some great people who were homeschooled. But the idea of someone learning only from one person who thinks Fox news is completely accurate and the government is coming for you is scary.

My brother is homeschooled and he is just fine. He does want to go to public school though so he can make some friends. That's cool to me, i let him play Portal all the time. So we will let him go to public school. He already knows the cake is a lie, I have taught him all he needs to know.
