School Is Not a Magic Recipe That Will Create a Socialized Child

Confessions of an Un-Socialized Public Schooled Child

You can’t convince me not to homeschool my son using the socialization argument. Not because I believe the changing educational landscape is making the brick and mortar class room obsolete. Not because I believe brick and mortar group learning environments kill creativity. Not even because we want to customize our child’s learning to incorporate our ethnic background, serve our children unique interests, stay in control of our own time, and include basic real life skills and experiences as part of our educational plan.

You can’t convince me not to homeschool my son using the socialization argument because I believe a brick and mortar school is not a magic recipe to a socialized child and does not offer any proven benefit over being schooled at home.
