Cool!Full disclosure: My scholarship wasn't National Merit! :-)
You got it because you were a NM Finalist even if it wasn't directly from NM itself, right? Close enuf to make the point for a casual unschooling questionnaire.
I enjoyed reading your answers. I *discovered* unschooling by stumbling across Holt in our university library. We began homeschooling our kids as they would have been entering 4th and 7th grades. I knew several people who homeschooled and I asked them if they could recommend some books about homeschooling. It seemed none of them read about educational theory but were simply doing it for religious reasons. I spent much of the summer before we officially withdrew them from public school reading everything I could find about education. Holt spoke to my soul and the rest is history. My *kids* are now 22 and 26 and absolutely fabulous people. My only regret is that I didn't know about unschooling earlier.
Hi, Dee, you're definitely discovering my blogging universe! Welcome. I hope my bluntness and profanity doesn't offend you beyond the limits of your sensibilities.
Not a bit. It's ignorance and stupidity which I find more offensive. ;)
