I think it would be remarkably refreshing to encounter the sort of homeschooling parent who can confidently say “all forms of education have their drawbacks, and blah blah blah is what I am doing in order to counteract the disadvantages that I have caused my child by choosing homeschooling.”
Okay, so maybe I’d like to hear something more coherent than “blah blah blah” but it is incredibly disheartening that parents are willing to homeschool their children without ever seeking to understand the possible long term drawbacks.
If I were feeling more snarky and less sad about the unnecessary harm perpetuated by those who otherwise pour so much into their children, I would hint that public school is the place for the children of people so intellectually lazy that they refuse to consider the obvious ramifications of dramatically “alternative” parenting choices.
