Whether or not homeschooling is good for children is a big issue in our world today. People bring up problem after problem with homeschool. Since homeschooling has been around since the world has started, it can still work today, even though it is strongly opposed by the world. Homeschooling has been around for centuries. Thomas Edison was a homeschooler. In public school he was called dumb. Today we are blessed with a homeschooler's invention, the light bulb. His mom gave him the education that the public could not give him. Another homeschooler in history, though more recent, is Tim Tebow. His parents homeschooled his siblings and him. Today he is big in the minds of kids because he is an excellent role model. Tim Tebow said this about being the first homeschooler to win the Heisman Trophy: “That’s really cool. A lot of times people have this stereotype of homeschoolers as not very athletic – it’s(sic) like, go win a spelling bee or something like that – it’s an honor for me to be the first one to do that. ”1 That statement sums up how Tim Tebow felt about homeschooling. Thomas Edison and Tim Tebow are not the only ones that were homeschooled. After homeschooling since fourth grade and racing since age six, eleven-year-old Joey Logano said,“I have home schooling and I really like that. I don’t feel like I’m missing anything by not going to school. I feel like I learn more that way.”2 Mozart, Laura Ingalls Wilder, Louisa May Alcott, and Alexander Graham Bell
