"There is a common and mistaken stereotype of homeschooling that envisions a mother and a child, or several children, working alone, isolated from the community. This stereotype makes it easy to imagine that homeschooled children are unsociable and unsocialized. But homeschooling is intensely social. In fact, because homeschoolers are not bound by the constraints of districts and school boards, they can associate much more widely, spontaneously, and creatively than the conventionally schooled...
...So it may be surprising news to many that homeschooled children are more sociable and better adjusted psychologically than the conventionally schooled."
