So, as an adult who was homeschooled all the way through high school....
When I got to college, I was absolutely astounded to see that students didn't care about learning,
only about test grades. And that no one was passionate about anything, they were all just there
because they felt like they were supposed to be. Meanwhile I was excited to learn, and i was curious,
and never studied because I didn't care about the grades or the tests, but always did well because I
thought it was all so interesting.
Don't misunderstand, I'm not saying that only homeschoolers can avoid being zombies just doing what
they're told, I met several people from public schools who were just like me. However, they were
invariably the students who didn't pay attention in high school, never did homework because it wasn't
challenging, and always tinkered with hobbies and projects at home every night after school. It was
then that I learned that these kids had homeschooled too, self taught, just like me, only in addition
they had wasted 40 hours a week almost every week of their lives for nothing, and I hadn't.
