about homeschooling. Stuffing 30 kids of the exact same age in the same class for 12 years is not 'normal' socialization ie the kind humans were designed for. Children need (and want!) to have more contact with adults, babies, seniors, etc.
Yes, some homeschooled kids get terrible educations. This is dependent on the parents. I know many adults who were homeschooled as children and they are all totally and completely normal, in a social sense. My daughter's babysitter was homeschooled for 10 out of 12 years. She also went to college. She has nothing but good things to say about homeschooling (And she's a super cool and smart and wonderful person! I'm so glad she watches my daughter all day...). And now-a-days it's so easy to homeschool because there are so many pre-designed curriculums to choose from, and many that are delivered online. I can see the appeal.
Anyhow, yeah, I agree with your post.
