Are you people aware that '' Hanson '' were home schooled. That made me really happy in 1997 and makes me happy still. They are so good.

Education scientist Sugata Mitra tackles one of the greatest problems of education -- the best teachers and schools don't exist where they're needed most. In a series of real-life experiments from New Delhi to South Africa to Italy, he gave kids self-supervised access to the web and saw results that could revolutionize how we think about teaching.
About Sugata Mitra

Sugata Mitra's "Hole in the Wall" experiments have shown that, in the absence of supervision or formal teaching, children can teach themselves and each other, if they're motivated by curiosity… Full bio and more links

Scool was pretty much me twiddling my thumbs for 6 1/2 hours. Now I'm starting homeschooling and taking co-op classes, not Kitchen-Table homeschooling. Hope it's better than public school.

my mum isn't single but my dad works alot he became a contracter so he could spend more time at home but now it's worse he is never home before like 8:30 at the earliest and when he is home he's more moody plus if he does get home at a resonable hour he has to work through the weekend at home so he is on the phone and we have to be quiet.

That sounds awful! I've never been teased my self but I can only guess...
Well I've never been to England but pretty much the case I find where I live is that homeschooling meeting groups are rather hard to find... it takes some looking into.
I totally understand though, my mother has it pretty rough being a single mom and your brothers school people seem like large ass hats, I'm really sorry.

my brother is enjoying it i think but that is because of he can't get teased but it's not best for him because he can't socials. in england i don't think there are many homeschooling groups or at least not in my area. but the main problem is my brother doesn't really want to be homeschooled he has been forced to by the lack of coporation from his old school the one that basically got rid of him and then tried to make it seem like my parents took him out. and it sucks for my mum because not only does she have to do all the housework for a family of six she has to tutor him. run around picking us up and now my little sister is getting a tutor for after school because she wants to do well for an entrance exam to my school because it has small class and my parents think it will help her because she has really bad grades. my brother will end up in a private school for special needs kids and if my little sis gets in to my school that beens all 4 of us are at private school which isn't cheap even with me and my twin sis on a scholarship

Is your brother happy being homeschooled right now? I think that's the most important thing for any child is to make sure they are happy, because you only get a few years as a kid. Now for the academic question, I feel I should not be the person to answer this because I'm unschooled. Where I excel in art, I am a mess at math and I'm fine with that.

Well clearly I can't speak for everyone in the homeschooling world but I have a large amount of friends. Their ages range from about 2 to over 40, which is where I think people get all mucked up because everyone tries to find friends just their own age...but as for my few very close friends most of them are around my age, I met them at homeschooling groups and one was randomly taken to my birthday party by one of my other friends :P I think the thing is to keep an open mind to who your friends could be. Oh and not all my friends are homeschooled, quite a few of them go to school or have been to school.

i knew someone else who was homeschooled until secondary school. she didn't know how to make friends and she hated it. so after she tried to commit suicide by if my memory serves by jumping out her bedroom window (that's how the rumour goes but it came from a reliable sorce) so she went back to being homeschooled. that i think is a real danger of home schooling i think sometimes they don't have the people skill you pick up at school. how do you guys make sure you have the social skill requided in the world

ok i shouldn't have join because i go to school and always have. but for the last year my brother has been homeschooled because we can't get him into a school. he had adhd and autism so he kept getting into fights so his school decided it wasn't working out so asked him to leave and since then it's been awful. he tried for a special school but he hit someone with a hockey stick so he didn't get in. he is like behind in somethings but he only does the subject he likes so he is GCSE level with maths and science.
