 I must have met the same people! 

 That is why we shouldn't judge the masses as a whole but as individuals.  The only time where judging the masses would be acceptable  is if the whole is in the same "behavior" boat. 

Quoting AutymsMommy:

While I gave some heated responses in that post in full support of unregulated homeschooling, I might play devil's advocate and say that I know several families who feed that stereotype and I do understand where several of the anti-homeschoolers are coming from. Having had the opportunity to speak to one of our neighbors (the principal at a public charter school that receives many children previously homeschooled) and hearing his frustration at receiving children into the sixth grade who can't read past a Kindergarten level or do math other than basic addition (and we aren't talking about a minority of the homeschooled students he's seen, rather the majority), having no world view outside of their family's religious views or science exposure outside of nature walks and bird watching, and then having upset parents when they hear their child needs to be "remediated" - they have some valid concerns.
