-John Taylor Gotto
A large part of why I homeschool is out of the hope that my children will find themselves as they study and learn. That instead of heading to college without any clue what they are good at or what they like, they will have spent their adolescence unearthing their talents and skills. And that in that process they will discover the world. That they will feel a part of the community - that they will know what contribution they can make - and are able to make one even before they are adults. I hope that they will learn how to live. I love being a part of that miraculous process. A process that may happen in a public school, but in my opinion, in spite of it not because of it.
