Keisha, a homeschooler herself who graduated high school at age 15, explains how freedom is one of the reasons why she homeschools.
One of my favorite things about homeschooling is Freedom! Freedom to be yourself without peer pressure. Freedom to keep the schedule most practical for your family. Freedom to do school up a tree, in your pajamas or on the go, if that’s what you want to do! I was homeschooled, and loved to study barefoot up a tree eating mulberries from the branches or on top of the goats’ house in the quiet fields. I had the freedom to work at my own pace, and was able to graduate at age 15 with scores in the top 1% of graduating students nationwide! I hope my kiddos also grow to appreciate the amazing freedom they have as homeschool student.! One of our fun indoor/outdoor school days is shown here.
