The four oldest Harding children have all graduated from college and are pursuing lucrative careers.
Heath Harding, now 17, was the youngest student ever to graduate from Huntingdon College. He graduated at 15 went on to obtain a master’s degree in computer science.
His sister Serennah, 22, is the youngest female physician in the U.S., and is pursuing a career as a Navy doctor.
Rosannah, 20, has been working as an architect since she was 18. She credits homeschooling and studying on her own for her success.

“We just [studied] at our own pace,” she told reporters. “Rather than a class of 30, we were a class of three. So, we each did it at our own pace and we just accelerated.”

His sister Hannah, 25, is now designing spacecraft as a mechanical engineer and holds a masters degrees in math and computer science.

With school shootings and rules about not bringing your own lunch to school, hopefully more people will see homeschooling as an option. As Ron Paul states in his new book, the Internet will do to traditional schools that e-mail did to the Post Office.

This is exactly

Why go to college, though.

Why go to college, though. Higher education is not much better than lower education when the state interferes. Much of what is taught is not useful.

It depends on what you go to

It depends on what you go to college for. The reality of it is that too many people go to college for the wrong reasons. It seems that these people made wise choices.

Reminds me of

the Swann family (Ben Swann). IIRC he was 1 of 9(?) that graduated HS and College super early.

I Spent Hours and Hours in Class

To avoid boredom, I spent hours in class reading novels from the library. It was a great education. I learned to see the world from many points of view.

Did you know you can get A's by asking questions in class? Proof you're paying attention is rewarded.

Just think, all those kids are already paying into Social Security and Income Tax. They'll still have to wait for a pay-out, however.

Very Impressive
