I homeschool because I have trouble understanding the information in a class setting. I went to public school until 6th grade. In class I would get A's and B's and I was a great student in class, but when it came time for me to take the state tests I would get "below-average" for my scores. A couple of weeks after homeschooling my mom figured out that I learn hands-on. That is why I homeschool because I know that I get the right help I need.
