|Some liberals argue that this homeschooling scene is evil|
He continues his commentary: "It seems to me we have a few marginal ideas colliding here. First, homeschooling is hard to do well and arguably too lightly regulated as a result. But there is also a lot more interaction between homeschoolers and the public system than many people seem to understand. In many states homeschoolers can and do participate in school clubs and extracurricular activities, take classes, and in 29 states participate in sports under some circumstances (in 13 with broad access to high school sports)."
More: "Second, economic integration is great, something I value as a parent, but it’s also marginal and in practice politically difficult to put in place. And that’s not just conservatives, many of the very liberals Goldstein is urging to flood the schools with their own children assiduously work to ensure their kids are not around a lot of poor students. Spend any time around school and school district boundary issues and that becomes painfully obvious."
