A blogger thinking out loud:

I think, possibly, I have come up with a decent criticism of homeschooling. I realize that most of the arguments against homeschooling (socialization and whatnot) are suspect at best. However, I am starting to wonder if a lack of competition is healthy?

He goes on to explain his hypothesis. At the end, he asks for feedback from home educators.

His “decent criticism” basically amounts to yet another repetition of “adversity builds character”, otherwise known as “hand-on-hot-stove-ism.” Lovely.

There is plenty of competition at my house. If I don’t beat that kid at Othello soon, I’m going to cheat. I wouldn’t want her to get a big head.

I commented there. He says he plans to homeschool and is thinking things through.

What I would expect from a homeschooler! 🙂
