Dr. Thomas Smedley believes that homeschoolers have superior socialization skills when compared to children in the general school population.  He conducted a survey in which he administered the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales test to identify mature/adaptive behaviors in children.  Homeschooled children ranked in the 84% percentile while their public school counterparts ranked in the 23rd  and the 27th percentiles.
