Do you wish you were homeschooled? Are you homeschooling your kids now? Do you plan to homeschool in the future?

    Diversity of experiences are important.

    Right, so send them to public school where individuality is homogenized out of them.

      I’ve never particularly understood this criticism, at least for my school. Elementary school was a little like that because we had the one main teacher, but by middle school and high school we were being encouraged to try out different things. And that was just before magnet schools were a thing in my school district. Now my elementary school shares space with a Spanish immersion school and my high school has a special arts magnet program. It seems like kids are being encouraged more than ever before to explore their individuality.

        Sounds like your school district is better than 80-90% of the districts in the US.

      Depends where. But yes a public school system will tend to decrease individuallity in profit of the collective, I don’t see it as a bad thing. It’s just different.
