He still has his concerns about us though.
I’d still be more comfortable with children being taught by teachers who have been to college and mastered their subjects, than well-meaning parents who are simply following a lesson plan.
For all its faults, one great advantage of public school is that it forces the child to interact with peers from different backgrounds, in an environment where they are not always the center of attention. Even in the best of circumstances, that's something I think few homeschooled kids get.
But wait! Steve also makes this clear:
Believe me, I'm more than happy to revise my opinion about this.
So this is what I have in mind. We could write some posts that reveal 1) why we're comfortable homeschooling without college mastery of subjects and 2) the diversity our children are being exposed to by virtue of being homeschooled. I'd prefer it if we didn't focus too much criticism on public schools. The issue is us and what we're doing. Just leave me a link in the comments. If you have an older post that addresses this better then a new post could, that's fine as well, simply leave the link.
