The power to choose by Sophie Curzon-Siggers (a 17 year old student at MacRobertson Girls High School)

"Ask any parent why they send their child off to school every day, and most will respond without hesitation - to learn! And to socialise! Indeed, to equip them with the skills to proceed successfully into adulthood.

And yet, more often than not, these are expectations unmet by our schools, hopes for our children never realised in the current education system."


This is a wonderfully powerful article. Sophie is fully onboard with educational systems such as homeschooling and Sudbury Valley. The beauty of it all is that she's 17 years old and advocating for herself...she's certainly taught herself a valuable lesson!
