Homeschooling: Why such strong opinions?
I have noticed that whenever homeschooling is mentioned people have such a strong reaction - mostly negative. I am not sure how people school their kids affects others so much to have such a reaction.
I admit...I would not homeschool. I have a lot of reasons but they are my own. I do not think others need to think the same. When I first heard of homeschooling years ago, I thought it was odd. I thought kids were missing social interactions, are they geting the right education, etc. I have learned over the years how it works and have met people who homeschool. I have changed my opinion dramatically but still it is not for me or my family.
It seems the other misconception is that it is all religious based reasons. I have only met one family who homeschools for religious reasons. Most of the families around me who homeschools is because they feel the public schools are overcrowded, etc.
It just seems whenever someone mentions homeschooling people have such strong, strong reactions and i I am curious as to why?
