  4. Homeschoolers engage in less deceit than public schoolers, and are less easily amused by it
  5. Homeschoolers form fewer cliques and gangs than public schoolers
  6. Homeschoolers are less amused by profanity, and rarely have the compulsive profanity common to public schoolers
  7. Homeschoolers are more able to be self-employed or self-disciplined without requiring constant supervision.
  8. Homeschoolers are more likely to embrace faith and have a close relationship with God.
  9. Homeschoolers pray more often than students in public school, where prayer is censored.
  10. Homeschoolers perform better on average on all standardized test that are not infested with liberal bias (and even some that are)
  11. Homeschoolers attain higher literacy rates and reading competence, due to an absence of anti-intellectual peer pressure.[2]
