Unschoolers going to college! A reader shared this story with me-

Thought this might be a good place to share. My eighteen-year-old unschooled daughter (out of school after second grade) just got accepted to UMass Amherst with 44 of her 48 community college credits. She will be a second semester sophomore at eighteen. She has never taken a standardized test other than the GED (taken at age sixteen) and never got a formal grade until she started CC classes at age fifteen. Her college essay was about how empowered she is because she was in charge of her educational path. Okay, have to stop now; I'm tearing up.
