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.
