Re: Should homeschooling be illegal?

I'm not a big fan of homeschooling, if only because it generally doesn't allow a child to pursue points of view that run contra to the teaching parent's cultural and religious views. Thus, at best, you end up with an 18yo who knows the "three R's" and an ingrained social and religious POV, but who has no clue as to what's going on the rest of the world.

I haven't been much impressed with the homeschooled kids I've met.
