Rural Home Schooling
Medlin (2000) separates the socialization issue into three goals that can guide home educators:
1. participation of homeschooled children in daily routines of their local communities
2. acquisition of rules of behavior and systems of beliefs and attitudes needed both during their education and later in life
3. ability to function effectively as contributing members of society
Attending to these socialization goals may help guide parents in planning activities that encompass a concern for others, whether they live in one's own rural community or in a distant city or nation.
