I would have loved to be home schooled, but this choice of education has become increasingly popular just now in Latvia - when I was a kid, it was public education only. And my parents chose a big name top-notch elite school with huge classes (the amount of pupils studying together), instead of choosing a smaller, local school with less people and nicer atmosphere. Well, I guess my shool-time education is quite good, but I would have appreciated spending my school years among friendlier people. We even moved to another city so that my brother and I could attend that school, but I somehow feel it was not worth it. On the other hand, I have no way to guess about how my life would had turned out if we had made other choices.
I have come a long way, to surrender my shadow to the shadow of my horse.
