1. v. To socially isolate youth to the point of causing dysfunction in present and future interpersonal relationships.

2. n. An unaccredited repository for sheltered children where students receive parental "academic instruction" of questionable quality in such reputable fields as "creation science", "bible history" and "abstinence-only sex education".

(Definition excludes nonreligious home-education, which is confined to children of hippies living off the grid and ethnographers conducting research in remote islands in Oceania. Less than .1% of the total homeschooling population.)
1. Parent: Homeschool my children? I'd rather not have them end up as friendless virgins in their mid-twenties, believing Jesus rode around on dinosaurs.

2. College Admissions Officer: So, where did you graduate from high school?

College Applicant: I went to homeshool.

College Admissions Officer: Wonderful! For some inexplicable reason, although you have had no formal instruction in science, critical thinking or literature, I invite you to join our institution. What this nation's post-secondary education system really needs is more maladjusted young people believing in apocalyptic world-views with better knowledge of firearms than physiology.

Someone smart enough to get out of sitting through the daily 7 hours of bullshit our nation calls "school". Generally the all-around coolest people ever, along with being the best educated element of society.

Typically hated by governments who want to indoctrinate youth, and clueless fucktards who secretly wish they didn't have to go to school either.
Damn! That homeschooled guy just got laid twice last night! Too bad the guys who go to school are socially inert, castrated sheep, or they could have some fun too...

If you know someone with a matter-of-fact attitude who regularly makes awkward jokes/statements out of turn, exhibits hyper-White characteristics, or simply possesses a number less-than-desirable eccentricities, this is likely the agency to blame.

A system where your parents are in control of your education, and not some so-called teacher they hardly ever see. In a functional homeschooling family, a parent teaches their child, can give them the attention and care they need. The parent can make sure that their child not only learns important facts, but grasps concepts as well. In this manner, a parent can also ensure that the beliefs and morals they have attempted to instill in their children are not corrupted by unruly, dysfunctional children, or teachers who want them to think like everyone else. Children should be encouraged to think on their own, and develop their own opinions. Their personalities should not be squashed, and they should not be overly-sheltered in a decent homeschooling environment.
Homeschool groups exist to make sure that children are able to socialize with others their age, and to offer extra classes (like ballroom dance, art, or more complicated classes parents are unable to teach). Often, groups will organize dances, field trips, and even sports teams or music and drama groups.
Unfortunately, not all homeschooling families work this way, but many do. Public and private schools do not always work either (in case no one else has noticed).
I was homeschooled until 8th grade.

Homeschooling is misunderstood.

Homeschool is not for everyone.

Un-biased definition: School work at home.

Contrary to popular beliefs, kids who are home schooled DO have friends, DO have lives, and AREN'T all religious. Parents do it if they don't live in a place with a decent school district, or want their kids to have a better education than any school can give them. The one on one attention helps them to grasp facts and ideas and formulas better.

There are home-school groups, co-ops, 4Hs, sports, etc. And that doesn't even include the non-homeschool-only activities that they can participate in.

And in most cases, it's not parents randomly trying to teach their kids. There are curriculums that the parents can order, that outlines every step of the way kind of like a script, so they really don't have to know much, but still be as good of a teacher as one with a degree.

If done sucessfully, the homeschooled child will end up having friends that attend private schools, public schools, AND who are also homeschooled.

People actually EXIST outside of a physical school. Shocking, I know.
I'm a 14 year old girl, and have been homeschooled all of my life. And believe me, I go out, I have fun, I have a boyfriend, I have FRIENDS. There's even homeschool proms and dances where I am that I go to.

Don't believe the stereotype.
Non-Home School Kid: What school do you go to?
Home school kid: I'm homeschooled.
Non-Home School Kid: Oh, wow, how do you meet anyone?
Home school kid: I'm homeschooled, not under house arrest. Plus, I met you, didn't I?

1. a form of schooling devised by parents who feel that somehow they can provide a better education to the kids than a trained teacher.

2. how parents of teenage celebrities get their kids out of school.

3. a clever way to keep your son/daughter a virgin until high school
examples:

1. Father: so are we sending jack to a private or public school?
Mother: well, i thought we'd homeschool him, that way we can make sure he never develops his own beliefs!

2. tv reporter (to the JoBroHos or Jonas Brothers): so what school do you go to?
JoBroHos: well, we're homeschooled (all wink)

3. Dad: well, i thought about sending janie to a celibacy clinic, but i decided just to homeschool her..

Everybody is like: ''It sounds like so much fun! You can hang out at the mall with your friends all day long!''.
No. Being Homeschooled is FAR from fun. I've been Homeschooled since the second grade, and it is so depressing.
It's great for the first 3 months, and then reality hits.

Basically, you oversleep every morning because what's the sense of waking up early unless you want to be stuck watching some Weather Channel. And then you do schoolwork for 1-3 hours.

Then after that there's nothing left to do except sit on the couch and watch TV for HOURS. ON. END. And go on Urban Dictonary and Facebook and eat junk food.

And eventually, you get so lonely that you go online and join every social network site possible, and then meet a bunch of online friends that you will never meet but you don't care because YOU WANT SOMEONE TO TALK TO! And that's basically your only social life. The computer. Social Network Sites. Online friends. And Cyber Bullying.

What a life...
And if your a failure at school, your Mom spends 30 minutes screaming at you about how you should atchually pay attention to your work and do it better and then you end up getting grounded, leaving you back to watching endless hours of TV and eating.

The ONLY way to get away from your parents and crazy family is to pretty much lock yourself in your bedroom or go for a walk.
So yeah, if you want to spend your teenage years depressed, lonely, lazy, and bored, I highly reccomend you DO NOT BECOME HOMESCHOOLED!
