I got the following from a website devoted to home schooling...fits with my
Think for a moment about what schools really do. They classify and
segregate children by age and ability, reinforce class, gender and
racial prejudice, and strip from children the right to any real
interaction or private life.

Socialization, in this respect, becomes submitting one's will to that of
the group (or person in charge). This is not the basis for healthy
relationships. Home educated children, because they spend so much of
their time out in the real world, generally are able to communicate well
with both adults and children and to have friends of all ages. They
choose to spend time with others because they enjoy their company or
have a similar interest - just like adults.


Can't allow that to happen...better raise school taxes.
