His mother cried when she took him out of the traditional education system at the age of 9 to be home-schooled, says 13-year-old Logan LaPlante, who wants to be happy and healthy when he grows up.
And here he is four years later, giving us a lecture that will leave “some” college graduates I personally know dumbfounded with their jaws dropping. Apparently, it seems his mom’s schooling abilities didn’t turn out to be so bad after all. Not only is Logan eloquent, confident, charismatic and touches on very important key-points that are complex beyond his years, he also turned out to be a very adaptive, and a pretty straight-forward-thinking person who will most likely make intelligent decisions in his life. You can already sense his great character, advanced self-awareness and free spirit.
So for all those out there who think home-schooling is such a very bad idea and it kills intelligence and creativity, perhaps this would make you rethink. Am I saying that traditional education is bad? Not at all. I simply am saying that home-schooling has had such a very bad rep and it’s time people reconsidered the wrong image they have of it and, if anything, this is just proof that it does work out for some people.
