One of my daughters is public schooled. Last school year she had a rough year with the death of several family members.
This year, the school year has been rocky for her entire school. A few months ago one of their teachers passed away from cancer. One of the students father passed away. Yesterday, one her her classmates took her life.
Please be in prayer for the students and staff of her high school. This is a small town, and the entire school is smaller than what my graduating class was.
I don't think any adults have a clue what today's teens face. Peer pressure, being laughed at over small things, driving high dollar cars, latest cell phones and electronic gadgets, drugs, alcohol, sex, dating, being parents at age 16, fights, racial issues and more. When I was a student, half that stuff didn't exist (cell phones and such). Yes, we had pressure, but not what it is like now. Even one of her younger teachers, who is just barely out of college made a comment about how it has changed since she graduated from high school just 6 years ago.
Homeschoolers have the advantage of avoiding many of these pressure points, and the advantage of often having more supervision or observation and one on one time. If she were to decide to come back to homeschooling with her sisters, it would be fine with me.
