This blog entry is exactly the kind of thing that college bound homeschoolers (and their parents) should think about. Not a diploma, not high school experiences, not how many hours a day they study. MIT wants kids who have lived life with passion, and who have done a variety of projects, worked with many different kinds of people and situations, and who have shown their resourcefullness and ingenuity. A GED doesn’t show any of this. Nor does a diploma.
Please pass this link along to anyone you know who homeschooling a teen, or almost teen. This should be on the “what every parent of a homeschool teen should know” list.
