According to Jacqueline Espinoza.
In today’s society there are two major types of education, public schooling and homeschooling. I believe that public schools provide a student with better education than homeschooling ever could.
Actually there are a plethora of educational choices available today. There are private secular schools, private church schools, on-line schools, public schools and homeschools.
Then Jacqueline Espinoza blathers on about the credentials public school teachers have and questions if homeschool parents have the knowledge to educate their children. Apparently she failed to do any research before writing her ignorant diatribe on homeschooling as she fails to acknowledge the numerous studies that have been done showing that homeschoolers tend to score above the national average on both the SAT and ACT, the primary tests used by colleges in evaluating college applicants.
Jacqueline Espinoza goes on to say
Homeschooled students only interact with their parents and/or siblings that they see on a day to day basis. This does not allow a child to learn and practice social behaviors and cope outside of the home with others their age.
Apparently Jacqueline Espinoza has no clue that homeschoolers belong to homeschool groups, join recreational sports teams, boy/girl scouts, theater groups and other organizations where they interact with their peers on a regular basis. Nope according to Jacqueline Espinoza we just sit home all day & night never laying eyes on anyone outside our immediate family.
I am really tired of bigots like Jacqueline Espinoza who write opinionated claptrap about a subject they know nothing about. She claims she knows ONE homeschool girl who felt very overwhelmed by all the new experiences in college, and whom nobody liked because she was quiet. Ms. Espinoza I have news for you there are plenty of public school students who feel overwhelmed by all the new experiences in college. There are also numerous public school students who are shy and quiet and socially awkward. The vast majority of Homeschoolers are successful in college and have no problems transitioning from homeschooling to college.
