Default Not about poly: Homeschooling why?

There seems to me to be a kind of mania about homeschooling in America. I wondered why this is. This is only my own opinion but it occurs to me that different sections of the population are not integrated and don't want to be, they don't like their kids picking up "bad" ideas from mixing with other races/religions/ideologies ?
Homeschooling is very rare here in the UK. I know that we would have no life at all if we didn't pack the kids off to school each day. Those 6 and and half hours are precious and allow us the mental space to be ourselves.
And I think it is neccessary for kids to grow up around their peers and not be isolated.
So can somebody American explain it to me?
I thought the US education system was supposed to be pretty good? Am I wrong?
