What ABOUT Socialization?!

Ok, stick with me here- let 'em load... go in order...

-In 1994, Canadian homeschool kids were found to be satisfactorily able to interact with others, ie, 'socialized.'

-In 2003, HSLDA funded a study that found the same thing.

-This year, the same Canadian kids (now adults) were surveyed- would you believe it, they were still not social morons! Read more:

"When measured against the average Canadians ages 15 to 34 years old, home-educated Canadian adults ages 15 to 34 were more socially engaged (69 percent participated in organized activities at least once per week, compared with 48 percent of the comparable population). Average income for homeschoolers also was higher, but perhaps more significantly, while 11 percent of Canadians ages 15 to 34 rely on welfare, there were no cases of government support as the primary source of income for homeschoolers. Homeschoolers also were happier; 67.3 percent described themselves as very happy, compared with 43.8 percent of the comparable population. Almost all of the homeschoolers—96 percent—thought homeschooling had prepared them well for life."
