Just a day ago I got to talk to my best friend. She has been my friend since seventh grade, so we’ve gone through four years of public school together. Sometimes when I talk to her I feel bad because whenever I ask about school she replies with “Egh, I hate school.” With her being my best friend it hurts to know that I am having an amazing time with school because my school can happen anywhere at anytime. My school is also fun and she is sitting in the same classrooms every week having to deal with trying not to fall asleep in class because it’s so boring. I wish that everyone had the opportunity to be homeschooled. I mean it’s pretty great that going to the aquarium or the beach can count as school time for our ocean unit. Homeschooling can be a great opportunity for kids of all ages because it allows you to work at your own pace and learn what you actually need to know, like how to balance a checkbook, budget or write a resume. That’s just Math and English! For Science we are learning about the ocean because it’s right next to us and what better way to learn about your environment then to touch and see it? I do try to support, uplift and inspire my friend in her experience with public school though doing different things will always give us things to talk about that’s for sure!
