Why is it, that the biggest critics of homeschooling are public school advocates?
Isn’t public school supposed to teach kids to be open minded, accepting of others who are different than them, and tolerant of other perspectives?
Or at the very least, isn’t public school supposed to teach kids to understand something and avoid making black and white judgements about something’s value without at least a moderate comprehension of it?
If that’s the case, why are so many public school kids intolerant of homeschoolers? Why are the grammas and uncles and cousins of homeschoolers so negative about it?
So, I ask, the argument for sending kids to public school (or school in general) in order for them to learn to accept people’s differences, and to learn to get along with people they don’t like – does it hold water?
Or is public school just another form of social exclusion?
