I Was Deprived Because I was Homeschooled

Guest Post by Ashley Schnarr....


Someone recently asked me if I thought I missed out on anything because I was homeschooled. After our conversation it got me to thinking….. “Was I deprived any thing?” “Did I miss out because I was homeschooled?” After much thought I’ve come to this conclusion:
 
Yes. I DEFINITELY missed out because I was homeschooled.
 

I missed out on so many things like:
  • One size fits all teaching style
  • Grade segregation
  • Mandatory training on subjects that go against my beliefs
  • Being restricted to the average grade for my age
  • Being unsheltered in a peer dominated environment
  • Constrained religious freedoms
  • Limited flexibility
  • Reduced family time
  •  
Homeschooling provided me with much flexibly, freedom and family interaction. I learned to thrive socially by mingling with people of varied ages and God’s Word was instilled in me virtually unhindered.
 
So you ask me “Do you feel deprived?” Yup, I definitely missed out, but you know what? I don’t regret it one bit. I wouldn’t change it for the world.

I was homeschooled as well, and agree with this 100%.

I was definitely deprived, but I am SO thankful for it!
