is no longer conducted in the shadows, behind closed curtains, with the fear of
'whispers' from the neighbors. I know there
are those who still 'speak out' against homeschooling, buying into the old, and
might I point out disproved, myths that can still swirl about regarding
homeschooling and more pointedly homeschoolers.
The homeschooling community itself will 'poke fun' at itself by talking
about being weird and unsocialized because we know it is, more often than not, untrue. Either that or we embrace our 'weirdness' as
being unique individuals raising free thinkers who will change their world. Regardless though homeschooling is legal in
all 50 states and so we can walk in the sun during school hours without fear of
serious, legal retribution.
