SWAC Daughter was home schooled her entire life, grades K-12, and did not attend public school. She is now in college and is going through mid-term exams this week. She just texted with the latest grade of 100 on her economics exam; earlier this week she made a 100 on sign language, 97 on business law, 96 on English. I expect she will do equally as well on her remaining subjects.
The reason I am extolling these grades is because I am proud of my daughter's achievements. She proves to doubters that home schooled students can and, indeed, do learn in a home environment under a parent's guidance ... and can then go on to higher education and do well.
My son graduated from James Madison University this year with a major in computer science and a minor in English. He was home schooled in grades 2-12 after we became disenchanted with the public school system.
I am a mom who is a high school graduate ... no college degree. I was able to teach my children at home ... and they have both done well in college. I am not alone because there are many other parents who are also successfully educating their children at home.
Home schooling works.
