    When you say "diverse" what specifically are you referring to, and how do the homeschooled kids miss that diversity?
    He's referring to the latest indoctrination in diversity. I think the implication is that your homeschooled children will be racist without the govt indoctrination program.

    Thanks.

    I have nothing to gain in providing answers to you personally.

    I used to never really go for homeschooling, but as we now see what is going on in modern schools. I am all for it, to the point that we should close all public schools.

    I'm not exactly sure what "team-based" learning is, but I do know that homeschoolers play on soccer and Little League and bowling teams and swim and participate in all sorts of community activities such as theater, where they interact with their peers and others.

    And I can also state that those who go to college are generally better prepared and years more mature than their peers. Also more able to stand on their own two feet and to respectfully challenge their professors and to make their way in the world.

    I am sure you would find fault with them no matter what. Just the home school/anti indoctrination is just another thing for you to dislike.

    Um, so you mention diversity, but you refuse to define it when I ask you what specifically you were talking about?

    Diversity has many many meanings when speaking of people. You can't articulate what you think is important, but you think it's important.

    Okay.

    I don't believe that having various genders, sexual orientations, races, Hispanic, Korean, etc. will help someone learn French. A native speaking French person might.

    Not if you believe that my opinion here should matter to you on a personal level. I think you should do whatever you think is right to your kids. You are the mother and have the full right to do so.

    On a general sense though, as mentioned above, students should be exposed to multiple perspectives and get a taste of the real world out there. Closing them in a bubble of homeschooling may not do it.

    My kids all take a foreign language. Two take French, one takes German (and also Latin if we consider that dead language a foreign one). All are and have been taught by Americans. My kids are learning through study and practice at home, and with my help as I studied for a year in Vienna so I still speak some basic German, and I studied French for 8 years. They all excel in their classes. And you're right, I don't have to import any people of other race or sexual orientation into our home at homework time to have them learn these languages.
