As long as home schooling still involves activities (sports, clubs, scouting) outside of the home with other individuals, especially ones from different cultures, it will be a good supplement for making sure they are "well rounded" socially.I used to laugh at and ridicule those that would home school their children. Now I understand the reasoning. It is true that the child will miss out on some social stuff, but from what I can tell, it is not the positive things that they will miss.
I was lucky, I went to public school with a very diverse group; Kurdish, Black, White, Asian, Hispanic and Indian.
We could actually talk about the differences in our cultures and have a few laughs. These days, I am willing to bet that such things could never happen; everyone likely keeps to themselves... political correctness.
