Studies also show that homeschooling can set kids up to fail socially in many ways and go through a lot of pain in not knowing how to interact with people outside their family & church group. There are a few kids out there who have been homeschooled and are not complete social misfits, but unfortunately they are the exception. Homeschooled kids are not known for being comfortable with people outside of their small circle of family and church friends. When I was a counselor at a Christian camp, we would watch the new campers get off the bus every week and pick out the homeschooled ones with great accuracy. They usually stick out.
