The Myth of Socialization
by Diane S. Spears, Ed.D.
Dr. David Elkind, Professor Emeritus at Tufts University Child Development Department, conducted extensive research on childhood learning. He stated in his book, The Hurried Child, that children don’t respond well in large groups, because they become fatigued and stressed by too much noise and unreasonable expectations, rigid scheduling, and peer pressure.
Another study has been conducted by the National Home Education Research Institute (NHERI). The founder, Brian D. Ray, Ph.D., determined that positive social skills scores were higher for homeschooled children than for those educated in the public school system.
