This study examined teachers' perceptions of home schooled children's social/emotional and academic preparation for returning to the regular classroom. Fifteen elementary and three secondary school teachers were interviewed using formal, open-ended questions. The responses show that teachers find home schooled children socially unprepared to enter the formal school system. Teachers appeared less concerned about home schooled children's academic preparation.
