I would never - ever - suffer myself to go to one. High School was a complete nightmare for me, in every sense of the word.
My family was poor, my clothes were ragged. I grew my hair long, and the teachers looked at me with distrust. I had a teacher come up to me out of the
blue in the 10th grade and tell me, something to the effect of, 'you look like the kind of a-hole whose looking to start trouble.'
This sort of behavior - from a teacher! - has soured me on the school system forever. I was stunned, speechless, wanted to cry but knew I
The fights, the bullying, the constant anxiety. I get the chills to even drive past my old high school these days.
I eventually dropped out in the tenth grade. I was a good student, exceptionally bright as my homeroom teacher in 9th grade put it. But I was also
constantly in trouble, whether it be for fighting or drugs or what have you.
If I ever have a family of my own, I will certainly fight for them to be homeschooled. Perhaps their experience with the school system would be vastly
different from my own, but based on my personal experience it's enough to turn me off for life.
