Susan McDowell (PhD in educational leadership): "the question of whether homeschooled students are properly socialized is a non-issue today. All research shows children are doing well.” Homeschooled children are often given more opportunities to socialize than their public school counterparts. Public school children are confined to a classroom for 180 days each year and provided very little interaction with anyone outside of their own age group except for a few adults. Actual interaction between students is limited in public schools. Most classroom time is devoted to listening and working silently at one’s desks. Field trips and chances to interact with the world outside the classroom are almost non-existent in today’s public school schedules.
