Usually it is the parents that want their child to homeschool, but this disscussion is from a different point of view. I am a student (I'd rather not share my age) and I am seriously considering homeschooling. However, it's not that easy. I have to get my parents' okay. They are concerned that I will become a hermit that cannot socialize or make friends. When I was in my early elementary school years, I was shy, but I've gotten over that now. I am in a math progam 2 grades higher than the average class and I'm planning to take a test to go even higher. School has become too easy and I learn faster than the average (or even slightly above average) student. (no, I am NOT bragging!) If I homeschooled I believe that I could learn more, and learn it faster. My aunt is planning to homeschool her boys, so I also feel it could be easier on my parents. I know it's not my decision, but I've wanted to homeschool for over two years. Do you have any ideas to help persuade my parents to homeschool?
