When I was homeschooled with my three sisters, the local news did a segment on us about our decision. My mother made it clear, she was not excited for the quality of education, nor the type of education, allowed to be given to children.
Today, I am in Graduate school for my Masters in Architecture... and sadly, there are many of my friends who have a strong inability of thinking on their own. Especially in Architecture school, where innovation is key, you find many students doing what they did to survive previous educational systems - copy and paste.
I am so thankful to have been homeschooled, to have been taught independent thinking, and to stand firm with my beliefs.
80% of what you learn in life is from home, no wonder public education hates competition.
They that give up liberty for security deserve neither.
