    Would you have preferred to have been home schooled?

    If yes, how do you think your life would be different?

    Honestly, I was so introverted already going to a private school that I think being schooled by myself could have only hurt the situation. I met the few people I now consider friends by chance after I went into public school. I simply cannot imagine my life without a school environment. Maybe it's okay for people who are in a lot of extracurricular activities and things, but not for me.

    I wasn't homeschooled, and I'm glad.  I had a tough time in school, especially middle school.  I was bullied and just had a hard time fitting in with my peers, and I asked my parents to home school me, but they wouldn't.  Staying in school taught me how to stand up for myself and gave me important opportunities for socializing.  Also, school gave me opportunities for advanced classes that I never would have had at home.  I advanced academically beyond what my parents could teach, and even had I not, it's not save setting up advanced chemistry labs in the house anyway.  There are advantages to homeschooling, sure, but I think kids really miss out on some of the advanced classes.
