Hi, my name is Harland and this blog is all about my life being home educated.
I’m 15 years old and was in school up until Christmas of 2016, so this is still pretty new to me.
Why am I home educated?
So why am I home educated I hear you ask?! – Where do I start, I never hated school but I didn’t love it either. I liked the social side of school, seeing my mates, having a laugh but I didn’t the fitting everyone into boxes part. Now I know that sounds like I don’t like learning, trust me that’s not the case. I just found school didn’t always play to my strengths.
I always liked the idea of being home educated but never thought my parents would go for it, but when they could see that school was making me unhappy they were onboard straight away. For that I’ll always be grateful……(My mum made me type that!)
Seriously though, it’s a whole new way of learning and I’m looking forward to sharing my journey with you.
