I've talked to my mom, and she doesn't know what to do, either. Should I try homeschooling, or try to learn it on my own? My mom has tried talking to the counselor about maybe dropping down to College Prep (CP), but she just kind of blew us off. Help.
Before you consider homeschooling, both you and your mom must do some reading. For you, I would recommend, The Teenage Liberation Handbook: How to Leave School and Get a Real Life and Education by Grace Llewellyn. This has changed the lives of many young people in your position. Your mom might want to read A Sense of Self: Listening to Homeschooled Adolescent Girls by Susannah Sheffer. (Both also available from www.holtgws.com.)
Next, visit some homeschooling websites, like
www.homeschoolteenscollege.net and www.quailhaven.com/academy/hslinks.htm.
