    Tell me again how homeschool education doesn't stack up against public education... Homeschoolers outperform public school kids in every metric. They're even better socialized and more well-rounded, which is a common criticism of homeschooling.

    HOMESCHOOL DOMINATION "But are homeschoolers odd? Studies say NO: In a study measuring communication, daily living skills, socialization and maturity, HOMESCHOOLERS outscored public school kids on every level." *fingersnap* College@Home

    I'm a homeschooling mom and I hate that chart. It compares stats from one small subset of homeschoolers, HSLDA members to ALL public schoolers. It's special pleading and I cringe every time I see a fellow homeschooler share it. The information is worthless and I'm not interested in domination, just getting my kids a good education - like most public school parents.

    Dawn, I understand your point of view. The chart is not a be all or end all, and I agree that the tone of the chart is over the top. The chart just puts some information out there to help people think. The beauty of homeschooling is that families are not corralled into a specific group for research purposes so it is hard to get the numbers right. You are also right---most parents just want their children to get a good education, regardless of the method they use. My issue is that the public education system is out there presenting themselves as the BEST option in town when the facts show otherwise. I am all for educational choice, but making sure that parents get good information to make the best choice possible. This chart is just one visual to aid in that discussion. And for the record, I am not interested at all in domination either :)

    Lauren, Charts are great visuals to get attention, but that does not negate the responsibility of the reader to check the facts. Good point to not take information on attractiveness at all. This is something to remember when reading any graph, watching any television commercial, and radio or print ads. It is a challenge to dig for the info, but a very important skill for us to use and pass along to our children.

    I honestly think the most important thing about getting a good education is how driven the student is. It doesn't matter whether or not you go to a public school or a home school. I go to a public school, but I made sure I went to the best school in the area (Harrison Preparatory Academy, an I.B. school). I have friends who are home schooled, though, and and they are at the same level of math and reading I am at. I also agree with Dawn, these kind of charts pick and choose data to make their point seem more valid.

    I love the discussion happening in these comments. In my experience (teaching 15 years in elementary and middle school and being a stay-at-home mother for a time with my own children), I see two groups of students who are home-schooled. One group is the group represented in the infographic above. These parents are diligent and are sure to be sure their children are learning and socializing and becoming adjusted well-rounded citizens. Yes, I absolutely believe that generally, those students score higher than the "average" public school student and it is a positive experience for them. But the other group is of students who are homeschooled and end up falling behind their expected level by years. Often it seems these families are not prepared to homeschool effectively or have motives that are not in the best interest of the child.
