Teen homeschoolers: feeling bored or stuck? It’s time to level up. Here’s how.
This video is inspired by all the badass homeschoolers (and other self-directed teens) I’ve met through Not Back to School Camp, alternative schools, self-directed learning centers, my Unschool Adventures trips, and online.
If you don’t feel badass yet, don’t worry—this video is meant to be a nudge in the ribs that gets you started down the path. “Badass” does not mean “superior”, but it does mean that you’re better prepared for transitioning into adult life.
Oh, and all these arguments apply to teens in regular school, too. They’re just restricted from doing a lot of stuff. So this is me encouraging you to make the most of your freedom.
