De-Schooling Success Story

We have heard of yet more success stories about autonomously educated HE kids, such as the case of a child who'd been so badly failed by school that her self-confidence had been very unjustly wrecked. This had meant that any new information coming her way would cause her intense fear and she appeared to have stopped learning.

Well, to mix metaphors, autonomous HE has given her the space to find her feet, to watch as much TV as she wanted, to mix with other unschooled teens, to care for younger ones with inspirational tenderness, to sing beautifully, and suddenly, after at least a year of de-schooling, she has taken the bull by the horns and is spiralling away on a tide of new information.
