I'm almost 65, but don't plan to quit learning. I suppose it's most accurate to say that almost everyone is homeschooled, since kids usually learn a lot at home, whether or not they go to a "school" as well. School always felt like "Prison" to me, even though I learned a lot there. Way too much of the time I was bored as hell and wanted to be having fun, instead of drudgery. I did not enjoy learning to be a slave or inmate.

I was 31 when I first heard of home schooling. I heard about John Holt's magazine, Growing Without Schooling, and I subscribed to it for many years. I had received about 41 issues of the magazine altogether and a few years ago I gave them to a family in St. Louis who expressed interest in them. I hope they have a good home now.

A few years ago I started a thread on the FSP forum where I encourage Free Staters to home-school. The thread is called Better Schooling at
