Home schooling would be good but it doesnt appeal to me. I like having people who are experiencing same things etc around me.

I know loads who are, but they are American forces children.

Amy there's so much I'd love to ask you, the teacher in me is fascinated.

I suppose I've always been anti, except in exceptional cases, but I dont know enough to really understand it.

Is it isolating you? Do you feel you get a "good" education compared to if you went to a normal school? (not that attending school can be the best or only way) Do you feel you miss out?

Oops  poster_oops Dont answer if you dont want. I'm asking far too many questions. Sorry for being so nosey. I suppose it just interests me.

I don't know... I don't really think it does so much.

Absolutely... I'm quite sure I've had at least as good and probably better than many school educated children.

Miss out on what? Peer pressure, drinking, smoking, sex, drugs? innocent

Surely you missed out on a social life at the time which is pretty important at that age?

I don't understand home schooling- do the parents do the teaching or does someone qualified come round to teach you daily?

Keep up with the curriculum... no idea. wink

Exams... some centres will take private candidates, but you have to find such a centre, and pay the exam fees... and there's the coursework as well. A right pain that is.

That was done several times for older siblings, but when it came to me we had disovered the "Learn At Home" courses with a college not too far away. The main part of the work was done at home, and contact with tutors by phone/mail/email. I'd have to go in to the college probably once or twice a week for tutorials, and for exams.

As a student with the college, exam entry and coursework were not a problem.

Yeah, OK, maybe I did. But not all because of being educated at home, PM me Mark, and I'll explain some of it further.

In my case it was the parents, and my dad was someone qualified, he used to be a teacher. How others do it I don't know.

i think it's good that you like home schooling because someone at my school was home schooled and didn't like it, so she came back. i'm not sure if i would like being home schooled though cause i like being around my friends and i think if one of my parents was going to teach me i would have gone in sane by now! retard
