Homeschooled children used to have a rep for being isolated,

but everyone I talk to about it today talks about how the Internet connects homeschoolers. There is a positive reaction to it now. Homeschooling is exploding and will soon shed the freakish reputation from the past. Those parents who defied the trend decades ago and followed their hearts WERE different from most other people, so it makes sense that their kids might be a little different too. Now things are different. Homeschooling parents tend to be wealthier (one parent can afford to stay home) and more educated (aware that schools suck) than the average parent. Just wait till the achievements of today's homeschooled kids come to light. We won't be worried about old cliches for long.
