Got a big problem with homeschooling, on a lot of levels. Here are some.......

1. Lack of regulation!
2. Lack of interaction with others
3. Potential to create two types of 'educated societies'; those who can afford to 'stay home and learn' (if they learn) and 'those who can't afford it!'

1. Regulation depends on the state.
2. In many areas, there are amazing opportunities for homeschoolers. Some families find that it's a matter of too many options for socialization as opposed to too few.
3. This is an issue also pertinent to living in nice areas with good schools or going to a private school. There will always be people who have more or less than someone else. That's life.
