Former homeschoolers transfer into public school behind the curve

I cam upon a homeschool debate at  It has the usual arguments.  Socialization, bad parents, no PE... you know... the same old thing. 

One argument against homeschooling however stuck out as being especially flawed.

Every student that I have had that has transferred from being homeschooled has been behind the learning curve.
This comment was from a public school teacher.  Let's stop and consider this though...

She is probably only seeing students behind the curb transfering into public school because the ones ahead of the curb have no need to.  We considered public school the summer before my son started his highschool curriculum, and my son decided against it because he felt it would slow down his progress.  Looking back, I have to agree because he has already progressed far more than I ever imagined he would.  This would not have been possible in public school...

So instead of successful homeschoolers transfering into public school ahead of the curve, they are probably going directly into community college... and college.

As another person weighed in... "if the child ended up in public school chances are that the parent realized homeschooling was not cutting it for their family."  There are soooooo many others that this teacher will never see.

PS... I am not saying that all homeschoolers who transfer to public school was unsuccessful, but just that IF this teacher is only seeing unsuccessful homeschoolers (and I doubt she is being truthful), that chances are that those students had the good sense to transfer to public school as they were struggling.
