KZ, This reply is not meant to offend or insight a
debate. I have nothing against public or private
schools. However, the primary function of any
school is to teach academic skills, not to teach
social skills. Unfortunately, as a byproduct of
these academic institutions, children are learning
their social skills from others who lack them. I
wonder, is this suppose to be a good thing? In the
"real world" we interact with people of all ages and
and background, and, ideally, we participate in that
interaction. While schools are moving to more
discussion based programs where children are allowed
input, I'm not sure they are all up to par quite

In addition, why would everyone have to read
Shakespeare to begin with? No offense, but I find
all of your arguments against homeschooling invalid,
but thank you for your thoughts. What worked for
you may not be what works for everyone. I'm not
saying unschooling is the best way to teach all
children, nor do I believe that. However, it works
for those who choose this style of education.
