Are you willing to dedicate the time and effort required to succeed at homeschooling?
It's not a willy nilly..wake up whenever and do no work kind of thing. It takes far more dedication, willpower, responsibility, and determination to succeed in than public education, by far. Often times the course plans are far more rigorous (if your mom chooses a school that offers a diploma..) and those checking your work (not your mom..individuals from an academy) are really strict and push you quite hard.
You won't get good grades just because your mom is the one writing out your schedule, and you won't do well unless, as I stated, you are dedicated to learning..and not just using it as an out, or thinking it's a loaf around holiday.
It will also better prepare you for the discipline required by college. Oh, and I speak as one who was homeschooled.
Then you should pick a prestigious one.
Of course you can...I graduated from college with honors. There are likely numerous homeschooling groups in your area that you could get together with.
It depends how bad school is. The usual annoyances or something worse? If it's really making you miserable and unable to concentrate homeschooling is worth considering.
Home schooling is viable if you have the support for it at home.
Your argument for home schooling is in that video.
no, you shouldn't.
because you need the education and you need rules and you need to be around other kids. thought it was obvious.
This is a one-size-fits-all response. The problem is, not all of us fit into one size. Home schooling doesn't preclude education. Being around other kids doesn't include education. Rules are everywhere, not just in the classroom. And your last comment was somewhat belittling. Nothing is obvious in a world filled with so many unique individuals. Not all of us are so adept at maintaining the status-quo :)
Questions are good and shouldn't be punished. Especially not "why?"
i'm not the parent. and my response fits most sizes. emphasis on most. the vast majority. it is only a few cases that should be home schooled.
speak later, sorry
Certainly :) I look forward to it.
i'm sorry, i had to leave, had a ride home i had to catch.
i can be grating, yes =) works for some people, not for everybody, i agree.
You can go at your own pace and if in many cases graduate earlier than usual from school.
That has little to do with being home schooled.
I see. Yeah, they are misinformed. What SilenceEvermore said was correct.
As an introvert, I can absolutely tell you that school did nothing to better my coping skills! I love learning but school destroyed that in me for a lot of years. I didn't learn how to stand up for myself in a healthy manner until adulthood because school is all about fitting nicely into the box they feel you should be in. I've never been good at boxes ^_~
Some of us march to the beat of our own drummer. The world generally doesn't do a lot to help us find a space that we fit into. It could be that your uncle couldn't find a place to fit, our he didn't know that looking outside the box was an option. The world can be a scarier place when we have to look outside the box and school won't teach you how to do that.
