Homeschooling allows us to be socialization snobs.

July 10, 2008

Homeschooling allows us to be socialization snobs. We can filter out kids whose behavior offends us. We don’t discriminate on the basis of race, creed, nation of origin, or other such nonsense. No, we discriminate on the basis of morals.

Homeschooled kids don’t live in a vacuum. While their publicly schooled peers are locked in a classroom for most of the daylight hours, homeschooled kids are out interacting with adults and children, picking up useful, well, socialization skills. And remember, one of the chief purposes of education is to teach children to become adults – productive, mature adults that contribute to society.

“No man ever believes that the Bible means what it says:


He is always convinced that it says what he means.”


— George Bernard Shaw, playwright
