Hmm, I do wonder as to the source of this information, and of course, it really is very different over there, but it may be worth thinking about what we could learn from this story about what US home schoolers do when they grow up.
"Dr. Ray, himself a homeschooling dad, studied 5,247 home-educated graduates and found that 49 percent were in college and the remaining 51 percent were earning their way in a wide variety of occupations. Over 10 percent were pursuing such prestigious professional careers as doctors, ministers, accountants, nurses, school and college teachers, and the like. About 3 percent were owners of small businesses or contractors, and 6 percent were office workers. Nearly 10 percent were salesmen, computer programmers, draftsmen, service workers, hairstylists and in other such positions. Two percent were wearing military uniforms or constabulary blue, and four percent were employed in such labor-intensive occupations as carpenters, mechanics, bakers and managers. About 7.5 percent were homemakers, and the rest were farmers and blue-collar workers."
I can't trace it but I seem to remember Prof Roland Meighan, formerly of Nottingham University and now of Educational Heretics Press, saying at HESFES that the outcomes for British home educators were very similar to outcomes from schooling. Must mean that we have something to learn!
