Ever wonder what might happen when an always unschooled kid decides to try school? Will he like it? How will he compare to the public school kids? How will he feel about the experience?
I’ve always wondered that myself. Well, here is a post from a perceptive unschooled teen named Kevin that will give you an answer. He tries out public school for a year, for the 9th grade, and gives us his feedback. I particularly like this quote:
Would I recommend sending a kid to school? Absolutely not. It’s much too easy to lose your way. One thing I would advise though is to find unschooling friends. Would I recommend any other unschoolers go to school? If it’s going to do them good like me, sure. If they want to see what it’s like, sure. Otherwise, it’s going to be a shit hole. Plain and simple.
