The children, after they’ve all grown up, seem positively average. College is the easiest way to get yourself a successful career in this day and age. The kid who works at Blizzard? He is probably an unusual case. He had raw talent, knew what he wanted, and got there. Good for him. I’m jealous of his fulfilling life without real school.
However, the current jobs of the other two seem to be only helping more families that choose to go the same route.
It’s tough for me to imagine what kind of lives the rest of the unschooled kids of America will lead. I can’t imagine it to be easy for them.
Julie Taylor did the article, and called it Why I Unschooled My Three Kids, but except for the title, the intro and the questions, it's all straight-up my writing. And she put in those links to my site (the blue words, not the underlining). I spoke with her by phone for quite a while on Wednesday, and her questions were based on that conversation.
