High School Learning

Clayton Said:

Can i do teacher aid for my high school service learning hours?

We Answered:

idk

Marcia Said:

What do your remember learning in high school?

We Answered:

I attended public school for 13 years from the age of 4 to 17. In fact, I'd never even heard of homeschooling until four years after I graduated from high school.

I can honestly say I have learned more since I left school, on my own.

History, math, science, geography, philosophy, world religions, sociology, politics.. these are all things that I have discovered an interest in *since* high school. My thirst for these topics was not awakened before then because either the class was not available in school, or the material was taught with such a lack of enthusiasm, I assumed the subject was as dull as the teacher.

About two weeks ago, an anti-homeschool person here asked if the average homeshool student knew how to do a particular problem in trigonometry, because it was that kind of knowledge that was a requirement in public high school....

Well, I am sure there are homeschooled kids who *can* do trigonometry. But guess what? I somehow managed to graduate from a public high school, attend a college, and function as a part of society without *ever* stepping foot in a trig class. In fact, I never even passed algebra! lol

Of course, my son is learning algebra now, and I am learning it right along with him, with the help of my math-wiz husband. It's amazing how easy this stuff is the second time around.. especially with the help of a *good* teacher!

I realize I did not answer your question yet :p What did I learn? I learned that if you cut 1/2 of your classes senior year, when you pick up your final grades for one of those classes you rarely attended, you might get a B in that class. And when, in astonishment, you ask the teacher (whose name you don't even remember) why he gave you a B instead of an F, he might just say, "If you'd actually come to class, you'd have had an A." Sheesh. True story btw. Quotas and moving the kids along like cattle to be good earners and spenders is more important than giving them an actual education.. that's what I learned.

Katie Said:

Where can I get info about high school learning abroad?

We Answered:

If you visit the AFS website, they can help you a lot. They have been working with foreign exchange students since the 1920s and they send kids to over 40 different nations in every continent except Australia. You can take a semester or year long program with them, and you can choose your country. They offer financial aid and scholarships, and you live with a host family and attend school in the nation of your choice. For more information, visit http://usa.afs.org/usa_en/home

Good luck!

Lois Said:

Is it possible to graduate from high school without learning nothing?

We Answered:

Nothing? No. But the variation can be staggering - some schools like the advanced math and science academy (AMSA) prepare you to pass all the AP tests by the end of grade 11, and to study subjects like general relativity in grade 12.

In others you are lucky to have completed algebra 2 by grade 2. That's the problem with the US secondary education system. Fortunately unless you did horribly bad in HS you should be able to get into a college that will give a solid reliable education. Even if you did horrid a CC is still open to you.

Thanks

We do need to realize the fact that at the end it not money neither assets which will be important for us in our life but at the end it will be just our attitudes and our beliefs which just only do matter for us.

Personally, I would take the interesting and challenging class over the simple and dull class any day. Being in the simple and dull class would be so pointless. Then again, I enjoyed physics (see my sn), and I found it relatively easy compared to my fellow classmates.
