home-schooling vs. real school
Here's what Austyn Fobes, the elite gymnast who does high school gymnastics for Howell this year says of home-schooling vs. real school: [quote]"I missed my friends," Fobes said. "We home-schooled at the gym. There were like five or six other girls, but it just wasn't the same. When we were deciding whether to home-school again or go to high school, I knew I definitely wanted to have this experience."[/quote] from: "Fobes flourishes on big stage" - http://www.app.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20061111/SPORTS01/611110412 A couple gymnasts at my club tried 'home-schooling' too, but only 2 of the subjects (which was pretty much schooling at the gym too) and they didn't really like it either, and they got behind too they said. So they only did it for that year, and then went back to regular school for all subjects and skipped gym to get more practice time. Usually schools let you skip gym when you already workout for so long.
