I keep seeing posts about homeschoolers and wgat they are able to accomplish, something families may be asked when family or friends find out that you’re homeschooling. They’re well-meaning and concerned about the children, just usually misinformed.
Homeschool children can and do go on to achieve a lot, as has been highlighted by recent events with the Olympics in Rio. I’ve seen pictures floating around in regards to the gold medalist gymnast, Simone Biles that references how well homeschoolers compete.
Locally, my community also celebrates trapshooter Corey Cogdell who took the Bronze in Rio for Team USA, was also a homeschooler.
Even closer to home, though not connected to the Olympics, my oldest was just cast in the Nutcracker ballet, along with two other homeschoolers he knows from co-op. When he told his dad he was cast, his dad congratulated him, saying he’d be dancing on the biggest stage in the biggest state. He was just stoked to have gotten cast considering he had never auditioned before (though I knew he was really talented).
I’d say homeschoolers accomplish a lot, how about you?
