Mary Pride in Homeschooling World “Getting Started in Homeschooling” -undated
Better Preparation for the Real World. Modern schools only seem normal to us because we have been brought up from birth to accept them. Actually, they are highly unnatural environments. Where else in your life will you have to spend all day with a group of 15 to 35 people of your same age, doing activities that never yield any usable result? In the real world, you are with people of different ages, working together on real projects. Families are more like this than schools are. And it’s easier to give homeschooled kids real-world adventures, such as participating in community theatre, volunteering in a hospital, etc.
