Quotes on Friday

Homeschool 101What effect does homeschooling have on the kids themselves? Are they less social or more social? Do they become misfits in society? Barb Lundgren, who homeschooled her three children in the “Unschooling” manner advocated by educational philosopher John Holt, states,“I have found that homeschooled kids are quite different from ‘normal’ kids. All ages and abilities can play and work together without prejudice. The degree of natural compatibility, the ability to cooperate and share that homeschooled children show is remarkable.There are no words in our language to describe such children. … It’s through their interactions with other people that you really step back and say, ‘Wow, these are really different kids.”‘If I had to describe them, I guess ‘extraordinary’ is the most useful nutshell sort of word. Extremely mature, responsible. Passionate, sensitive, careful, respectful.”
(Samuel L. Blumenfeld, WorldNetDaily.com)
