Huh? I thought this was happening everyday in public schools? Isn’t that the socialization that everyone says homeschoolers are denying their children?
An estimated 4 million youths at 9,000 schools are expected to take part in this year’s Mix It Up Day. Many of the schools are using it to kick off a yearlong exploration of social boundaries.
After last year’s event, organizers overwhelmingly reported that Mix It Up Day successfully encouraged students to cross group lines and meet new people; helped foster school spirit and unity; raised student awareness about social boundaries; helped students make new friends; and made students feel more comfortable interacting with different kinds of people.
You mean that schools don’t automatically expose students to different classes and races? So what kind of socialization has been happening instead?
Both class and race survive education, and neither should. What is education then? If it doesn’t help a human being to recognize that humanity is humanity, what is it for? So you can make a bigger salary than other people?
