What prompts you to say that? Do you have any data to back it up? We
homeschooled for a while and found the local support groups to be pretty
tolerant and not all religious. We're in Florida.
When I lived in California I knew someone who homeschooled her kids, too.
She wasn't overly religious either and seemed to have the same extensive
support network I found here.
...so my homeschooling exposure in both states runs contrary to your
statement. There are a lot of people who are disenfranchised with the
public school system, people of every stripe.
