"You Go to
School Where?" [#85]

I'm home-schooled, so I have to say that this episode is
nothing like an average home-school day. It was okay, but I am probably
not going to listen to it again. Not the best, but not the worst.
Review by Wendy
This episode was very, very strange, but I
found it hilarious! I have been homeschooled K-12 and although there are
occasional days like that Robyn Jacobs experienced, I have to say that
that is nothing like a typical homeschool day. Furthermore, most
homeschoolers (at least that I've ever met) do have some idea of what it
is like in the public school setting even if they have never been to an
"actual school". Plus, homeschoolers often do a whole lot more than
public school kids (there are many exceptions, but this tends to be true
in general). But I still found this episode to be enjoyable and
interesting, to say the least.

I heard "You Go To School Where?" on the
official podcast. The whole introduction to the show was a constant
disowner, I-had-nothing-to-do-with-this, kind of introduction. Dave
Arnold promised that all the homeschoolers would be offended and would
probably never listen to the podcast again. So after all this, I
listened to it, expecting not to like it at all, but I did. It is a
little inaccurate but not to the point that I wouldn't enjoy the show. I
think the main message, being content where you are and the grass not
being greener on the other side, was still well portrayed. As a
homeschooler, and having been all my life, I wasn't offended, but rather
entertained, especially by the whole fire station and cat rescue scene.
Just for those of you who don't know, homeschoolers do have shorter days
than the average public or private schooler, but it really depends on
the parent for how much shorter it is and what work is done. And we do
have fun field trips like that, though I have never helped rescue a cat.
All in all, it was a good show.

I have in home school all my life. I don't know about
everyone but I have books that are written to teach by themselves that
just need to be graded.
I understand to a certain extent why they would hide this episode, but
it seemed like a good episode to me. And I like the fact that they would
try to make a home school episode, so I think You Go to School where
deserves three stars.

This was okay. Though home schooling has become so
popular where now a days. Home schoolers know what a public school is
and what they do there. This show was okay but i have defiantly seen
Review by Nikki G.
I wish more people knew about this episode. Even though
it isn't very accurate about homeschoolers, it's really fun to us to
listen to! It'd be really neat to actually switch schools for the day!
The funniest part of the episode is how they pronounce the word "homeschooled"
like "homeSCHOOLED"-- I didn't know there was a way to mispronounce it!
;) But overall this is a wonderful adventure!
