HOME-SCHOOLING: Socialization not a problem

One of the most persistent criticisms of home-schooling is the accusation that home-schoolers will not be able to fully participate in society because they lack "socialization."

Homeschooling Grows Up, a study comparing home-schoolers who are now adults with their peers.
When measured against the comparable population:

  • 34 were more socially engaged (69 percent participated in organized activities at least once per week, compared with 48 percent of the comparable population).
  • Average income for home-schoolers also was higher.
  • Home-schoolers also were happier; 67.3 percent described themselves as very happy, compared with 43.8 percent of the comparable population.
  • Almost all of the home-schoolers — 96 percent — thought home-schooling had prepared them well for life.
