Edit: As I was interacting with a reader in the comments about this, I realized just how much I disagreed with the tone of the infographic I’d originally posted.
So, even though I appreciated some of the information shared in it (Homeschooling doesn’t usually make people socially inept. Yay!), I’ve decided to remove it. I don’t want to have a negative conversation about homeschooling…I want to keep it positive. My apologies for posting it without thinking about it longer.
Someone sent me this infographic, and I thought I’d share it with you since you all ask me a lot of homeschooling questions.
For the record, the tone of the infographic is more combative than I’d prefer (really, do we need to talk about taking down people who are educated differently than us??), but since it offers some statistics that answer questions I’m frequently asked, I thought it might be worth sharing.
I offer it up not to denigrate public schools (because with an involved parent, I think it’s quite possible to get a good education in public school), but rather to say, “Hey, homeschooling works too.”
