Should i go back to school?

Should i go back to school? Topic: Who invented the idea of homework for kids
June 16, 2019 / By Shantae
Question: ok first a little background info. im 13, homeschooled, i have been homeschooled since i was 10. my mom took me out of school when the bullying by this one guy got to hard and the school did nothing. he turned most of my guy friends against me. and talked about killing me when i was right next to him. (he never acted on it though). the principal never helped at all, she just said live with it. and thats why my mom took me out of school. (that was in 5th grade) i liked school (well most of it, just not tests and homework). i do like homeschooling though. i just miss most of my friends. Now, im thinking of going back to school for high school, (not middle school because #1, i'd only go there for 1 year. #2 all the public middle schools in my city suck! they are the worst ever. and we can't afford private schooling.) so would that be a good idea? i want to go to college for art and law. so would that be a good idea to go to high school? but i could also just take classes instead of going to high school. so i dont know what to do. also what is high school like???

I'm assuming your are just finishing up with 7th grade, and considering high school in the fall of 2011, maybe 15 months off. One homeschool family in our area decided to start a small cottage school, and invited area homeschool families to drop off their kids for some homeschool classes at their house. In another city, homeschool teens banded together to hire mentors whenever 3 or more of them felt they wanted to learn something their parents were ill-prepared to teach them, such as lab chemistry or dissection biology. My son and a friend got together twice a week for Latin and Biology at the other kid's house because his mom was a retired biochemist who knew such things. Our son also started taking college classes at the local community college when he was 15 1/2. He did wind up having friends often a great deal older, but he was okay with that. He was included in their study groups. These are the options instead of going to high school. Do check to see if your local high school is any better. It sounds like a rough neighborhood! See if the high school might allow you to attend for just a few courses, just those your parents might have a hard time doing at home - messy art or science, things that work better in a group - drama, chorus, sports. You could then ease back in, see how you like it. Check to see if the school would get some "ADA Money" for a part-time student. They then would rather have you there half-time than not at all. High school is the big dividing point. I have heard of many deciding to go back in 10th grade, but the local high school would not give them any credit for 9th grade, to they had to "repeat" 9th grade. Others are allowed in at their age level, but even with straight A's, not allowed to graduate because they didn't have 4 years of accredited work! If you decide to continue homeschooling through high school, and work hard, you will have no problem getting into college. Colleges and universities are quite open to our homemade transcripts, and the finer the college, the more likely they are to accept you. Go to a college fair and find out what background a teen should have to get into art and law programs. You may have to decide on one or the other, or you might combine the two and learn all about laws regarding art ownership and rights. Often teens who "invent" their own careers wind up being very successful as adults in a unique niche market. (Homeschooling you could get a start on such a study. In a public high school, they would probably insist you scatter your studies across the board.)

Find your nearest community college and see if they have a counselor for older adults. They have special programs in many states. They will give you a placement test and recommend the right math class for you. If you don't want to go to college, you could look for ads for tutors, and call them to see if they tutor adults. Search for "online math help for adults" and you will find lots of sites. Some are free and some charge. Good for you that you still want to learn. I went back to college and graduated at age 40. I hadn't had a math class in 20 years, so it was difficult, but not impossible.

Where I'm from public schooling isn't very well so in the event you desire a well schooling you need to attend to a personal one. But this relatively is dependent, a few public colleges are very well and a few are very dangerous, simply as a few personal colleges are very well and others very dangerous.

that's right. go back to that prison labeled public education so you can get told to shut up all day and go home without learning any thing.
