How many more times are we going to go round with this?
Happy as Kings, Homeschoolers and Tier I enlistment category
I love homeschooling, and I respect homeschooled kids, but there is a difference in attrition rates between people who attend institutional schools during high school and those who don’t. My ‘shorthand’ for this is “crap training.” The kids learn to put up with all manner of nonsense, schedules and arbitrary rules. Homeschoolers don’t get “crap training” like the instituationally schooled kids do.
There is no shame in the difference, but it costs more money to train people who statistically are less likely to complete the first enlistment.
Please stop embarrassing homeschooling by insisting that there is no difference.
