People often say that you should send your kids to school so they can interact with a diverse group of people. But, the local public school only reflects the diversity of the community in which it is built. So if you live in a high class, mostly white community, your kids are only going to school with other high class, mostly white students. Where's the diversity?
Also, if you live in a diverse community, with a mix of all races, the home-schooled kids live in that same community. While they are out and about during the day, they are interacting with the same mix of races outside of school, as your kids are mixing with in the school. The only difference is, your kids are in a highly structured environment, where as my kids are not. They still mix with the same types of people though.
So can you really say that home-schooled kids cannot be exposed to diversity with out attending school?
