I is for independent thought. Today’s schools were designed for the purpose of creating a uniform and docile workforce. Students are expected to conform, and there’s little room for kids to exercise independent thought.
On the other hand, homeschooling allows children to read widely, to discuss concepts with the adults in their lives, and to come to their own conclusions and get used to relying on their own judgment. This ability is essential in the new economy of the 21st century. How fortunate our children are that homeschooling helps them develop their individuality!
