To me? Home schooling is DANGEROUS. Cuz it doesn't teach socialization to our children. And often parents are not available to assist with class or homework cuz many times they do not KNOW how to do it. You can only get so much from computer tutorials and online teaching. Even though our school system is jacked, I still think public school or a place where a student leaves their home and engage in typical generation contact with groups of people is HEALTHY. When you start pulling kids out of school away from their peers and into a system with there is no interaction and socializing...,.again that is very dangerous. And a reciepe for disaster. Cuz once you isolate, you can manipulate thinking and behavior. And since children have it bad anyway....this will make it FAR FAR worse. Cuz then you have to deal with those who have a lack of empathy, sympathy, compassion, common sense-all the componens which makes a human...normal and you acquire by being around other people-can't get this from a computer, Cuz these are the elements that allows critical thinking...but! Once it's just the computer and the child, the stage is being set up for social failure. It has been shown historically that people do not NEED books to grow and learn, they need other people to model that behavior.
Before books or written word, it was good ole person to person teaching. From showing how to plant a seed, make a fire to cook a meal. building a hut to creating a nation. There is no replacement for human communication. To me this is just a ploy to remove our children from the human experience and turn them into the psycho MONSTERS many are already. And more psycho MONSTERS is more money for the prison system. But!
