Exclamation School, kinda long but need, HELP!

OK, I'm thinking about going back to school. (High School)

I'm home schooled and thought I would like it but don't. I feel like i'm not getting anywhere or learning anything new. My step dad took me out half of 8th grade, cause the H1N1, also since we were going to start barrel racing. (At the time with a mare I use to have) And if we had to travel during the week we could just go and take school with me.

Any way I talked to my step dad, (not to happy about me going back to school) :roll: But he understands that I would put education before barrel racing. So I talked to him last night and he say yes that would be good, Yay he agree......................... BUT! He wants to send me to GREENLAND! I DO NOT WANT TO GO TO GREENLAND! I liked my old school just fine A-B student and got along just well, But theres two reasons he won't let me go (Or he thinks he won't i'll try to work on him,) But the reasons are One he kept bringing this up because the KARNES go there, well I don't give a beavers dam about them. He doesn't understand I don't like them so I don't care about them either! Two cause my sisters and brother went there and look what they turned out to be. Both my sisters have a baby and one of them is going to have another, But they didn't even get pregnant over here they went to Enid, OK and one in Ohio and got pregnant over there so this school had nothing to do with it, and then theres my brother the mess up of the family. He's lazy and everything else in between. He moved out when he was 18 and moved in with the KARNES. Any way he's really not a brother any more. He got lost between picking his family or his friends. Well he didn't go for him family.

So any advise on to get my step dad to let me go back to West Fork High School where I belong.
I know it doesn't matter where you get your education but Greenland wouldn't even be open if it want for the state cause the principle and vice principle stole all there money and the states helping them stay open.

Advise needed and a lot of it. No mean talk about my step dad he's bull headed and think he's doing right. I need to show him he's getting it all wrong.

Thanks for the help.

I don't know if I can help.... I've never been homeschooled, I think all you can really do is talk to him about it. Give him all the reasons you think Greenland will be bad for you, and all the reasons that the school you want to go to will be better. That's all I can really say.

How about your mom? Could she help you?

Well she wouldn't mind me going back to West Fork, so I can see but it's usually my step dad that has the final say so.

Are these public schools? If so, where you live determines the school district, not the parents or your particular preference.

If they're private schools, then your parents can make the decision.

There public schools, and I've gone to West Fork, from 1-8 grade and Greenland I've never been and I live in West Fork. But there are people in West Fork that go to Greenland. There lucky there even open. Winslow closed a couple years ago.

But you can still go to public school if you are out of district. You have to pay though, but it's not expensive. Unless that doesn't apply for everywhere. It does in Mississippi

Again, it's based on how the school district is laid out, NOT where you physically live.

I had neighbors who went to a different school than I did as a teenager, because their house was in another district.

If it's a public school, generally neither you nor your parents will have any say in where you go.

My house is in another district than the school I go to. My parents pay tuition, my parents chose for me to go to the school cause they didn't like the school that was in our district. I'm confused, sorry.
