Trying to fit in and be “standard” is not the goal of a good education…
Every time I see this text from an Apple ad from 20 years ago, I think of homeschoolers and the fantastic potential that they have:
“Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.
About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.”
