“My parents always told us why public school is bad, but of course as a kid I’m not really going to understand. I never had the experience to. So I just kind of accepted that it was a bad place that I shouldn’t be until I was about 14. Because I didn’t go to school I always thought I had horrible writing abilities, and a bus load of other things. I finally made the decision to go to my freshman year of high school so I could figure it all out. Why is public school widely considered better? Why do my parents and unschooling parents everywhere preach it’s a bad place to be? Why is unschooling so much better? I got all of my answers.”
