Freshman Matthew Brooks already knows reading comprehension and faring well on tests are just part of impressing colleges.
Matthew Brooks, 14, sits in front of his computer preparing himself for college entrance exams.
He wants to be an architect, so college is a necessity. That means he has to test well and look good on paper to impress college admissions officers ‚ÄĒ especially since he has never attended school a day in his life.
Matthew, a freshman, and his three sisters are home-schooled.
And that means they're barred from membership in the National Honor Society, which adds a layer of distinction to a high-schooler's transcript.
Eta Sigma Alpha should not restrict their awards to home schoolers. This is as bad as the NHS restrictions. Their awards will gain more acceptance if everyone is able to receive them. This way they will be a better guide to everyone of the advantages of home schooling over school education. Parents were given the job to educate their children by God and they should do as much of it as they can.
