   Would you want to be home-schooled? If so, why?
No, I wouldn’t want to be home-schooled. Mostly because I enjoy the friends made at school and the team sports that I play. I also feel I am getting a great education from the teachers at school. — Silken Carlton, rising freshman, Western Alamance High School
   Personally, I would not want to be home-schooled because I enjoy the social and extracurricular aspect of public school. I love being able to spend time with my friends before school and in between classes. A lot of people are involved in the extracurriculars at school, such as chorus, art, sports, etc., which are activities that don’t come easily being home-schooled. — Grace Strickland, rising sophomore, Western Alamance High School
I would not like to be home-schooled, because I feel going to a public/private school with many other people teaches you social skills and how to work well with others. There may be more risks due to other people, but you are taught how to collaborate with others to get you ready for college. — Mende Carlton, rising senior, Western Alamance High School
I would want to be home-schooled because there are usually over 20 students in the majority of my classes each year. I enjoy an individualized learning experience and I think that being home-schooled would provide that for me. I also enjoy being at home. — Tia Foster, rising senior, Bartlett Yancey High School
No, I wouldn’t want to be home-schooled because I feel like you won’t get that real school experience. You won’t have the experience of meeting new people or making new friends or really seeing how school is. — Jarred Webb, rising senior, Western Alamance High School
