I'm very concerned about your ability to read for comprehension.To be fair most homeschooling families belong to many consortiums or other groups where the kids get plenty of social interaction. They also usually belong to youth sports groups, music groups, etc. In the early 90s when I first began teaching homeschoolers were much more isolated. I don't see that being so much a problem now.I know public school teachers that are anything but liberals. My problem with homeschooling is the lack of social interaction and challenges. School dances,Okay your continued ad hominems do not offend me but they're a huge time waster, and since my school year starts in a few weeks, I'm about to get busier and not willing to waste my time on really, really bad arguments. So if you keep it up, this will be the last time I respond to you in this thread.I really hope you are able to stick closer to the truth in the future.
To deny that the teaching profession is held tightly in the grip of Liberalism, Incorporated, a diaphanous lie.
"Anecdotes don't condemn an entire system"
"The California Federation of Teachers (CFT) passed a resolution at its most recent convention claiming that “the continued unjust incarceration of Mumia Abu-Jamal represents a threat to the civil rights of all people.” Thirty years ago, Abu-Jamal took away Philadelphia policeman Daniel Faulkner’s foremost civil right: his life. How obtuse of the CFT to disregard “the threat to the civil rights of all people” represented by someone capable of gunning down a man tasked with protecting the public.
The pantheon of leftist saints includes the Haymarket Square bombers, responsible for the deaths of eight Chicago cops, Joe Hill, murderer of former police officer John Morrison in Salt Lake City, Huey Newton, murderer of Oakland policeman John Frey, and Leonard Peltier, murderer of FBI agents Jack Coler and Ronald Williams. Notice a pattern?"

Unless you mean to show them how to lose arguments--in which case you're doing quite well.
Try not to appear such a dope in the future.....do your best.
You won't find me defending the teacher's unions--I can't stand them. I don't belong to mine.
"...so if you keep it up, this will be the last time I respond to you in this thread."
I've proven everything I posted...
a. homeschooled kids are far better educated than government school kids.
b. the teaching profession is simply a subsidiary of Liberalism, Inc.
Now....don't let the door hit ya' on the way out.
dealing with bullies, field trips, team sports, etc....I have no doubt kids can learn the academics before from a good homeschooler. I know this one woman,
have quite a few kids, she homeschools, and all the kids are very smart and all can play an instrument well. However, they're starved for social
Home is a protected environment, public school is not. You'll never have 8 mini-black kids jump you out back of the gymnasium at home, at least I hope not.
A big friend of mine that was on the football team saw what was going on and came and helped me out. I was going down!
With the advent of all these "online schools", the quality of homeschooling is going to go down. Homeschooling has always been a place for highly involved and motivated parents to educate their children, and that's PART of the reason they do so well. You needed to be motivated because you were your child's teacher--finding and building curriculum, delivering instruction. Now, with online schools, you don't need to do that. If you have a child say, 12 and older, you can leave your child alone all day long with an "online school". That is going to bring the quality and the stats down too.
Homeschoolers had better look out for that. But I don't care one way or the other if they do. See PoliticalChic's polemics and her calling me a "dunce" over and over on this thread because--well, I don't know why, presumably because I'm a public school teacher.
Oh, here's another aspect of homeschooling too: more and more parents are using "homeschooling" to hide abuse from school officials. See: the lesbian couple with all those children in CA who drove them off the cliff to their death. It's not a huge proportion, of course, but it's growing. The homeschoolers are handling this like they handle everything: by screeching about how wonderful homeschooling is to anyone who will listen. And even people who won't.

Several of my friends are public school teachers, and far from dunces.
You are, because you refuse to accept these truths:
a. teacher's unions are joined at the hip to Democrats/Liberals
b. vast amounts of indoctrination for Leftism takes place in government school
