The World’s 15 Most Extraordinary Homeschoolers

Recently a website posted an article on "The  World’s 15 Most Extraordinary Homeschoolers."  The people mentioned certainly aren't ordinary.  Nor are they ordinary homeschoolers.

Each of the homeschoolers on this list is highly gifted, and many are described as prodigies.  Not ALL homeschoolers are highly gifted.  However, homeschooling allows children of all abilities to learn at their level. Whether advanced or behind the bell curve, children who learn at their own level will learn more and learn better - and love learning as a result.

This is an interesting list, though.

1. Julian Assange:  WikiLeaks
2. Margaret Atwood: Novelist, poet
3. Francis Collins: Human Genome Project
4. Erik Demaine: MIT professor, theoretician of Origami Mathematics
5. Blake Griffin: NBA Basketball
6. Jonas Brothers: entertainers
7. Akiane Kramarik: art and poetry prodigy
8. Jonathan Krohn: author and political commentator at 13
9. Joey Logano:  NASCAR
10. Jedediah Purdy: author and law professor
11. Condoleezza Rice: former Secretary of State
12. Astra Taylor: film maker
13. Sunaura Taylor: activist for the disabled
14. Tim Tebow: Football player, Heisman Trophy winner
15. Sho Yano: earned a PhD at 18

What do homeschoolers have in common?  One time I was speaking to legislators in Olympia, and I told them that homeschoolers have only one thing in common:  they tend to be politically active for their right to homeschool.  Don't mess with homeschoolers, because we are computer savvy and we know how to get to our state capital when necessary, if our right to homeschool is threatened.  Beyond that, though, all bets are off.  There are a million different kinds of homeschoolers.
