I totally disagree with the research...even if it is something he read somewhere else. I think, if anything else, homeschooled children are more likely to succeed in college because they have formed a wonderful relationship with their parents over the years and they will still have their parent's support through college years.
On a side note, the guy I dated in highschool was Valedictorian of our class. He scored a 32 on his ACT and never made a "B" in his LIFE. However, he got to college and realized that he had to STUDY for the first time in his life in order to keep making A's. His parents pushed him like you wouldn't believe and he dropped out and became a drug addict. He wasn't challenged in life - he never understood the true meaning of learning - he just was always taught to be the best, win the most awards, make the best grades, and to heck with real life. The shock he got sent him running. Now, at 28, I think he finally has earned his degree - with all A's of course.
