promote tolerance and good citizenship” and does so in the public school system. Her case citations are from several different states. She cites the New Hampshire divorce case, I also cite, and applauds the judge for placing the girl back into public school, as legally correct. She also believes home schooling is under regulated and “identifies” the need to increase current regulations in every state. I, as a home schooling parent, am not the target audience. The author has obvious biases against home schooling in general, as noted by her language throughout the essay. I have obvious opposition to this essay, but I found it necessary to read and understand so I carefully define my argument; socialization can be accomplished at home, even by people of faith. I will be using this essay to show there are some in the legal community who still feel parents “sequester” their children at home and it is the government’s responsibility to teach good citizenship. I will also use this essay to give examples of home schooling families who choose not to follow the laws of the state by not filing “intent to home school” documents. Scaccia, Jesse. "The Case Against Homeschooling." Teacher, Revised | Real Talk From Real Teachers . 30 May 2009. Web. 25 Aug. 2011. This is a teachers “blog site” which encourages debate about teacher related issues through comments to articles posted on the website. In this article the author, who is an accomplished English teacher, goes on a “rant” against home schooling and creates his “top10” reasons why home schooling parents are doing the wrong thing. Suffice to say, he does not appreciate the idea of home schooling. The list is a bit vulgar, but a good example of the feelings some teachers have towards home schooling, including my cousin and my sister, both teachers.

I understand this is an opinion based website, but one of my goals is to gather information on the teacher’s perspective of home schooling. As I mentioned, my cousin and my sister are both teachers with strong negative feelings towards our family for home schooling our children. They share some of the same ideas as the author, so I feel the expressions are valid and deserve consideration as a viewpoint. I will be using this article to represent the viewpoint of some teachers, specifically regarding socialization. Van Pelt, Deani A Neven, Patricia A. Allison, and Derek J. Allison. "Fifteen Years Later: Home- Educated Canadian Adults." hsdla.ca.org . Home School Legal Defense Association, 2009. Web. 14 Sept. 2011. This is a synopsis of a Canadian study of home schooled children and their adaption in society. The study looked at 281 families who originally participated in a study of socialization in home schooled children in 1994. The study looks at “15 years later” and compared home schooled children to public school children (currently living in the same area) with regard to occupation, civic participation, college attendance and religious beliefs. The study found many similarities between the populations and the only differences showed that home schooled children participated more and not less in society.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
