Another danger of home schooling

Accused couple stayed low-key.
>>Their homeschooled children were kept out of sight and state-required checks did not apply.<<

In addition to the lack of socialization and exposure to diversity...

Nothing works except to

copy and paste a text string from Dave's message into Google. But even putting that good link into a reply does not seem to work. Strange..

Don't you people ever listen?! :-)

Use the BBC!

BTW: "The children did not attend school. and were kept out of sight most of the time, with neighbours unaware that any children lived at the house." (BBC)

There's a difference; I don't know which version is more correct. Anyway, the big problem- and Fla has had foster care problems already- is of having someone to keep track of who's where and why.

Got my own 'SE homeschool' story to tell later, maybe.

BTW, Dave, your socialization point is a good one. We had my son in both; didn't think much of the schools here, but wouldn't have taken him out if he were unsocial. (He's gregarious.)
