    lucky! haha

    what the hell im older than her and i dont graduate til next year:@ sucks to be aussie school wise.

  • liz

    So, I just wanted to start a discussion, if anyone is interested, private or public school? I’ve done both and i prefer private by far.

    Any opinions?

    =====================
    ive been in public school all my life except high school and im about to graduate next month and even though i loved public school i can honestly say with private school i have a solid fundation and i feel like ive learned alot just from going to the school that i go to even though i hate most of the kids at my school i got into a really college based on my school and i know it will benifit in the future
    anywayy

    congrats demi on graduating

    I was in public school until the end of 8th grade. I started cyber school when I would have started high school, (our school starts high school at 9th grade)….Personally, I like public better….but thats just cause I learn better with hands on && talking.

  • Mishelle

    I agree 100%

  • done

    all of you are ignorant. difficulty and education level of homeschool purely depends on the parents. they can make it a joke or the can make it way harder than any prep, private, or pre school out there. either way, there’s costs and benefits to both

  • Megan

    I really wish we could trade spots with these celebs and show them how real high school is

  • Anonymous

    it’s because they do the bare minimum. people who go to real school get electives and higher levels of certain classes. most celebrities get an extremely basic education.

  • AMC

    awee congrats :]
    its not that complicated. they go at their own pace. they skip stuff, but that because they need to focus on their career

  • kid

    i love demi, but homeschooling is definetly a joke. Because of her age, she would only be a sophomore, i dont get how she can graduate THAT early. I wish i could be homeschooled and then go to europe!
    ______________________________________________

    I am homeschooled, have been since 1st grade, and LOVE IT! It’s not super easy, we have to do the same stuff everyone else does, but my parents get to choose curriculum that will help in the vocation I will choose for life. I know TONS of homeschooled briliant minds, and many, including my own younger brother will be graduating early, but I won’t be. Technically, I can graduate at age 17, and have more than enough credits, but I love my family and I don’t want to leave home that quickly.

  • tonya (:

    graduated at 16 ?
    LMAO !
    what a joke..
    but hell, i’d do it in a second. (:

  • yes

    Well then you will suck at life when you get thrown into the real world. If you go to college your schedule can not always be that flexible. And for most jobs, you will have vey little flexibility as to times and deadlines. So you may want to open your eyes and prepare yourself for the real world.

  • LittleWasserman

    All in grade elven. Omg imagine if they went to our school! JB, MILEY, Demi, Selena and Taylor! Oh shit

  • Anonymous

    well, people like her and miley are prancing around LA on their bikes and going on lunch dates while i slave away hours everyday studying HARD for all my APs, going to extra-curriculars, and having a part time job so i can get into a good college. and they are STILL going to always be more successful, for what? playing make-believe in front of a camera? this world is MESSED UP.
    ==============

    agreed!!

    its annoying that they are constantly out shopping going out to eat riding bikes and im study and doing piles of homework or out in school.
    love them all but its unfair
    and then when they say they are like us and like regular teens well there are some aspects of each of our lives that are completly different we have to deal with school work and bitchy peers while they just study for 3 hours and fill papers out then free to do whatever they want

    anyways before people say im jelous or something im not just stating what i feel and yes im a fan of demi and all the other disney stars
    _______________________
    exactly! i mean i really do love them, but it’s weird hearing them say oh yeah we’re just like you guys, just normal teens, but in reality, they don’t go through the same things we go through working our asses off, while they go shop & eat & pilates it up around LA. yes, they do school work, but it’s nothing compared to what we have to go through daily :/

  • Anonymous

    okay how many times are you going to repeat yourself dumbass

  • blackskittle

    because when you’re homeschooled, or have a tutor. you dont have to wait for other kids to get done, you dont have to go to different rooms for classes, ect. so you obviously get done quicker than kids who have to deal with normal school.

    yay demi(:
    congrats, hun(:

  • lisa

    boo who they work hard to they act,sing they go around everywhere woking and any break they get while fiming they have to run to the school room to do work they have to do theat everyday wow you see them on there bike once and you think they have it easy!!!!
    i don’t even like miley but i’m defending her to you guys all go to school come home and all you have to do is homework and you can do what you want then they don’t get to just wacth tv when ever they want they have to act sing go to press stuff awards concerts they work much harder then some of you people and you have problems if you feel awful for yourself when they have to do all that!!!!!!!
    ===============

    seriously regular high school students experience the same things we get judged by our peers and some of us even get threats. and after homework some high school students have to work
    and plus it was their choice to be famous so they sacrificed not being able to watch tv plus when your getting as much money as them and doing what you love sometimes little things like watching tv dont matter,
    what the people who left those comments are trying to say is they claim they are like us but we have to work harder than them to make money at any given day people in the real world will get laid off and bye bye to their money all celebs have to do is pose for a magizine picture or do something they love like sing or act to get their money while everyone else has to work their ass off and then they go to school for like 3 hours yet still graduate faster
    i dont know
    yu have your opinion but theres always going to be two sides

  • Anonymous

    The problem is that homeschooling is ineffectual for life. You might be able to learn what you need to know, but school teaches you more than just what’s in the books. It teaches you life lessons as well and homeschooled kids are deprived of that. What happens when these kids go to college? They obviously have to struggle more so than the others because it’s like putting fish in a firepit. It’s a whole new environment. Kids who do regular school still struggle, but they know how to react when a shitload of work is thrown at them with a due date. Homeschooled kids don’t have that. Some of them don’t even grasp the concept of homework and turning it in at a certain time(not all, but some). Its not fair to the kid, because it’s also harder to retain information and use it when you go through material so quickly. Homeschooled kids are often lonely. My friend –wants to go to school so badly because it’s just her and her friends always have homeword and projects, I have them, and she’s just alone because she’s got all the time in the world to do this. Homeschooling is just not as effective as people WANT it to be. It has it’s advantages, but it’s disadvantages beat out the good points. That’s my opinion.
    ________________________________
    Totally respect your opinion, you didn’t jump straight to conclusions. But! What I do have to say is that it all really depends on the person. You could be homeschooled and the most outgoing-not afraid of attention kind of kid, or you could be homeschooled and be complete opposite. As a kid in school could be afraid of his own shadow. When it comes down to it, it’s based on the person. Sure, going to school keeps you surrounded and busy and stuff, but, its the personality. I’ve been homeschooled AND gone to an actual school. I’m a shy person in general, but not like socially challenged. About the part where you can’t keep up with having to turn in things on a certain due date, it depends on the homeschooling ‘school’ you use. With mine, it’s all online classes, and a due date for everything, you sometimes aren’t given as much time as you would have for kids at an actual school. You’re expected to do everything twice as fast when homeschooled. It’s a lot more challenging depending on the ‘school’ you school through.

    agreed. people in regular school do so much, just to ensure a spot in a good college, while celebrities are out there, with their money and fame complaining about how hard their day is. regular people have to wake up early too. regular people dont have breaks either. regular people are not paid millions of dollars to act in a lame tv show. honestly why are people in hollywood getting paid more than a brain surgeon or an oncologist?

    they obviously get some special treatment and the qualifications aren’t as much. the only two people who graduated normally were joe and taylor

  • Anonymous

    home schooling was WAY WAY WAY shorter then regular school. its because there are so many dumbasses at school that the teacher takes forever to explain if you were with a one on one tutor vs. being 1 adult with 30 students it would be way easier. plus you get to work at your own pace. im sure she spent summer at school too! and no she doesn’t have homework but she does have tests and stuff my friends homeschool and she says its not as easy as it seems she. :P

  • Sav

    Homeschooled kids gradate early all the time. A girl I work with is 16 and not only graduating VERY soon, but she’ll have finished her first year of college at the same time.

  • Jonas 4 Canada (17A is hot- Zac is in my top 3 guys :D)

    Congrats to her!
    I love how she graduated early, and Joe graduated late!
    Oh, Joe!

    anyone can homeschool. its completely fair. blame your parents. homeschooling is useless unless you have something bigger anyway, like demi. do running start. better education, 2x faster, and save a LOT of money

  • anonymous YEPPP

    guys we’re all obviously smarter than disney stars academically because we go more in depth for each subject. While they just learn the basics of it and move on. Technically if she learned all of the things that we learn each year she wouldn’t be ahead. We’re talking about all of the subjects. She probably doesn’t even take a language which is usually required. I bet she just takes math and english. No history or science. Trust me u guys, she may be good at math but she deff didn’t graduate at the same academic level and with the same amount of intelligence as we are going to when we graduate. It was her choice to go into acting. That means less on her education. Just face it, we’re more advanced.

  • Ashley

    Well she looks retarded.She probably is.

  • Anonymous

    im pretty sure homeschooling in general goes quicker when your by yourself. plus they have to do the bare minimum to graduate. like my high school had a million electives we had to fulfill in order graduate. and im sure she works through summer. its doable.

  • Anonymous

    you know what i agree
    i love demi and all of them but i have to agree with you on this one
    and no im not jelous or anything its just sometimes you cant help but think that its unfair when they are out chillin and im in school pushing and workin my ass to get into college than coming home and doing more schoolwork
    and this is just my opinion i dont want people bitchin at me

    __________________________

    No I totally agree with you. I work so hard (as do my peers) for my grades, my sports, my clubs, etc. and here they are going out to eat at famous restaurants with friends and traveling to places like Europe. I’m sure they work hard on their albums, shows, etc. but I mean REALLY when you think about what every other kid their age does they aren’t working much harder than the rest of us.

  • Angie.

    Home school really isnt a joke. I’ll be graduatign at 16, and yes you do still have to take standarized testing, atleast in my state. Basically it’s being able to actually learn without the drama of high school. The amount of hours that you do homeschool really depends, i do 1 one class a day for 2 hours and I have 6 classes, you still have to get your credits and everything. Its the same as school only you dont have to wake up at 6 am.

  • anonymous YEPPP

    HAH WOWWWWWW! So that means no more school for the rest of her career? HAH! She’s not going anywhere….

  • Anonymous

    to graduate u just have to pass high school exit exam it is not like you take AP us gov, Spanish 4, pre calc, econ, stats, physics, chemistry and weird classes like pottery or journalism plus some sport they just have to take the basics to graduate high school they don’t even take the SATs cause they are not planning to go to college

  • michelle

    She most likely just did the minimum amount of work to graduate since she is not going to college. Just enough to pass whatever standaradized test she had to take.

    she’ll fail in college if she ever decided she wants to go. dumb ass. a full education is good.

  • wateradd

    unlike miley selena and alot of otherr young celebs demi went to school untill she was like 14 when miley and selena stopped at like 12 i think so 2 yrs can be a big lead.

    HAHA all you had to say was international. theyre on a whole different scale. ive heard a lot about uni de paris but the have so many sub unis that i would know sorbonne’s ranking. beautiful school but so is just about everything in paris compared to the states. still, its all about the lsats. my friend goes to byu law and they are ranked 10th internationally and he says its not too hard until you break the graduate ceiling so you better study hard and never underestimate

  • http://www.popadictos.com Yaira

    Home school is much easier, I know people how did it, and is SO MUCH easy than normal school, that’s it. Starts don’t have to endure like 8 hours everyday of school and yet they graduated early is totally not fair. But remember they don’t even go to College or/and University so we are much more intelligent. Anyways congrats to Demi.

  • Jamie

    So, I just wanted to start a discussion, if anyone is interested, private or public school? I’ve done both and i prefer private by far.

  • ashleyyb

    i agree
    im 17 turning 18 in the summer and im graduating may 28th
    and ive been to high school all four years and i honestly dont get how with her busy schedule she managed to get 4 years of information in less than 3 years hmm they had to have skipped stuff because even going at your own pace with a schedule like hers its impossible to learn what all of us are learning in 3 years
    doesnt make since
    but congrats demi your lucky

  • b.davisss

    AGGRREEDDDD!!!!!!!!

    SERROIUSLY!!!! HOMESCHOOLING IS ONLY OK FOR CELEBS…. NO OFFENSE.. BUT U “NORMAL” KIDS NEED TO GET INTO A REALSCHOOL AND SEE WHAT LIFE IS REALLY LIKE!!!!

    I FEEL SORRY FOR DEMI COZ SHE ISNT EXPERIENCING HER LAST YR AT SCHOOL IN A FUN WAY…

    IM IN MY LAST YR AND ITS AMAZING.. THERES A LAST TIME FOR EVERYTHING… ATM IM ON MY LAST EASTER SCHOOL HOLIDAYS.. AND WHEN I GET BACK ILL BE ALL STUDYING FOR EXAMS AND TESTS AND ASSIGNMENTS….
    HOMESCHOOLING KIDS SEROIIUSLY HAVE IT MUCH MUCH MUCHHHHHHHHHHHH MOREEE EASIERR!!!!

    p.s. u kids who get homeschooled….. go get in a public school u loserss

  • Abby

    Uh actually, its not uncommon for people to graduate school at 16, I graduated 3 months before i turned 17…its called working at your own pace. Being Homeschooled is not a joke, the teachers ARE certified to teach and the thing about homeschool is that not only is it legit but you can work your courses around your schedule. Like you can take four courses for…lets say six months, and four the next and etc, the point is that stars don’t necessarily have it easy, If they decide to do post-secondary education, they will have to do the SATs or whatever they need…Its not likely that they WILL just get into a school depending on how famous they are…atleast I hope not

    law school is a joke depending on where you take it. i attended law school and decided it wasn’t for me because all it was was formality and definition which i could learn by myself. get ready for the lsats on your own because they most likely wont prepare you enough and nothing else matters. law dissertations are easy

  • yumika

    homeschooled people can basically finish school at whateve pace they want. if they choose to graduate high school at age 20, they can do so, if they want to graduate earlier like demi did, they can do so too. it all depends on them. my friend who is homeschooled (age 16, 10th grade, same as demi) is already taking college classes. so basically it all depends on the person and how much she/he is willing to study.

  • Anonymous

    yeah your friend is right : )

  • Disco

    How do they graduate quicker? It’s simple, they’re given easier work.. Plus I was homeschooled, the state (my state, at least) doesn’t require much proof that you’ve actually learned anything, they just want a sheet from an evaluator (who doesn’t want much proof either)

  • anonymous

    GUYS SHE IS NOT HOMESCHOOLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Celebrity tutoring is COMPLETELY different from homeschooling! Homeschooling is 5-6 hours each day of studying!! Do you actually think she does that everyday? NOOO meaning she is NOT at the same pace as homeschoolers and should NOT be compared to them! They work harder then she ever will. She doesn’t have the time to study as much as us or homeschoolers. Stop comparing her to them because she isn’t homeschooled. Homeschoolers are wayyyyy faster but she probably does school like every other day for maybe 3 hours. That doesnt get u far! Homeschoolers do it EVERY day for maybe 7 hours. She doesn’t know what being smart is except maybe for math. AND WAIT ONE SECOND! Like two weeks ago she said she was ahead in math and was doing algebra 2 already! Sophmores do that! She couldnt have made it through EACH math in that short period of time. HAH she doesnt kno what graduating is like AT ALL.

  • done

    thats private school bro. anything you have to get accepted to is funded education. i didn’t say you couldnt get accepted and 99.9th percentile is definitely an exaggeration but ive had many friends who were in the 98th percentile of the SATs and had easy 4.0’s but didnt make it. it has a lot to do with luck. they just throw some apps out randomly because they have so many

  • serena

    yea but your schedules probably not as hectic as demi which is why i dont understand how even at going at her own pace how she finished so fast they must not learn everything regular school teaches

    She wasn’t homeschooled; she got her proficiency. It’s this test you can take in CA when your a sophomore. It’s kind of like a GED, but the test is a little harder.

  • Anonymous

    it’s because they do schoolwork year round – including summers, etc. while everyone else is on break. if your homeschooled, you graduate around 16 – 17. i homeschooled from seventh grade to now, and i’m supposed to graduate when i’m 16/17.

    I go to a challenging college prep school and if she had to fill the same requirements we do at my school, and at the same academic level, she would not be graduating this early.

    It was just her choice to get a lesser education so she could focus on her acting career. I personally don’t believe that is a smart choice because education is important, but it was her choice.

  • blackskittle

    I personally perfer private schools. A few years back, I went to a private military school. Yeah, I know. When you think of ‘military school’, you think of marching, wearing uniforms, ect. But this was a school were kids who had parents in the military could go for free, but if you didn’t have a parent like that, you had to pay a fee.

    This school was probably the best school I ever went to, and believe me, i’ve been to alot of schools. At this school, the teaches wouldn’t just write something on the bored, and just be all ‘Okay, this is the lesson, read and learn.’. They would acutally MAKE SURE you learned what you needed to. If you didn’t get it, they would help you in any way they could. They didn’t leave anyone behind.

    yeah, I say private(:

    When you’re home schooled you usually learn faster because you don’t have to wait for classmates to finish their school work so even though you do school work for only 3- hours in a day you get a lot more work done

    for all you people who think homeschooling is a joke, you’re are mostly correct but know that some of the smartest people in the world were homeschooled. albeit their parents were most likely geniuses so in essence there is no better form of education. remember the 12 year old who was accepted to a university? he was homeschooled

  • LoveInLa

    umm yeah i doubt your really in college. I mean look at your grammar. You can’t even form a proper sentence. Anyway school is needed weather you belive it or not. Just so you know Demi doseb’t even have a diploma she has a bullshit GED which basically say’s “hey i graduated highschool” the comment about how it’s harder for homeschooled kids to get into college is true they have no real proof that they learnt anything. Once you get to college b/c your clearly not their yet you will see that what your learning in high schhol is applied someway in college. their homeschooling is not hard i buss my ass everyday in extra-curricular activites,a part time job,Ap English 11 and Ap Human Geography not to mention SAT prep 11. High School is challenging but deffintely needed!

    homeschooling is not a joke. i’ve been homeschool all my live and now i’m in my third year of college. i graduated high school when i was 15. i’m hoping to get my BA in chemisty before i’m 21 and maybe even go for my masters.

    imo, home schooling is a joke.
    no one flip on me.

    i’d rather have a real school, real friends, real perks like dances and proms, than graduate high school now when i’m 16.
    it helps you out much more in the long run and learning how reality works.

    ok i don’t care how much “faster” home schooling is, there is no possible way you get the same education as someone who goes to regular school until senior year. honestly, in regular school you get social interaction and more opportunities for better and thorougher classes. i mean good for Demi, but if something happens to her career she doesn’t have much to fall back on.

    That’s great that she graduated, but if she wants to get into a good college it will take a lot of work on her part. I read in some other post a while back Nick Jonas wanted to get into Northwestern University and that is a really hard school to get into. My brother got into that school plus Brown but his ACT’s were over 30 and he was the in the top 12 people of his graduating class.

    they do like fucking 1 hour of school a day (celebs) or at least thats what some of them said.

    while we work our asses off they sit there for 1 hour and probably play hangman

    SHE ISN”T BEING HOMESCHOOLED!!!!!! Homeschoolers go through 5-6 hours each day while she probably does 3 hours like every two days. U guys are saying she’s homeschooled when she’s really NOT! yeah obviouslyyy homeschoolers are at a faster pace, a rat could have figured that out. BUT she isn’t homeschooled. She doesnt do HALF the work they do so STOP comparing. u guys sound like idiots when u say that homeschooling is faster AS IF she is being homeschooled. It shouldnt even be callled school in her case.

    Homeschooling would be more one-on-one and its a quicker pace. Homeschool students can do work during the summer…they learn the essentials quicker. Homeschooled students learn the things that they will actually use in the real world.

    i can already tell you’re either ignorant or naive. or both. 3.5 is an index number. its only used to discriminate obvious non-contenders. 95% of admitted students were in the 90th%.

    This is ridiculous. There is no way she could learn everything, unless she was far ahead previous to her Disney contract.
    I am a year ahead in math and science, and two in history, but I still have to graduate at the normal time. I don’t know if homeschooling has any certain amount of credits you need; but in my school, you need 26 or more to graduate. Yell at me for being honest, but there’s no way homeschooling can cover that much material. My school takes a whole course in a semester for an hour and half a day, it still takes us 18 weeks to finish a course. So unless they have no breaks at all, I don’t understand.
    I am not calling Demi unintelligent by any means, I’m only saying I doubt she’s covered as much material as most students in public and private high schools.

    not calling homeschooled people stupid, but it is easier for sure. i know people who are homeschooled that sleep all day and learn for just 2 hours a day. the jonas brothers were homeschooled, and i honestly think they are pretty dumb. they cannot spell at all, have no grammar, etc.

    Actually, I’ve been in public school for my entire life, I just began homeschooling in February & I’m only doing it for the rest of my freshman year, & sophomore year then I’ll be going back to public school for my junior/senior year, so I’m pretty sure I’ll be fine when college rolls around.

    I think it’s kind of odd that you think I won’t be able to handle the real world just because I’m homeschooled, when in reality, I experience “the real word” more than the people trapped in a classroom 7 hours a day doing nothing but sit on their asses & listen mindlessly to their teachers droning on & on.

    Homeschoolers can also learn year around instead of taking school breaks. So it is possible to graduate early. And for fuck’s sakes she’s only a year early. I was 17 and when I graduated and I turned 18 that following July and demi woulda been doing the same!

    And what are some ya’ll talking about?? she’s not getting the “experience” of high school or college? I don’t know about ya’ll but I would trade the “experience” of highschool for millions of dollars, the celeb lifestyle, and private tutoring in a heartbeat.

    And did some of ya’ll stop to think that maybe Demi is just smart?

    So please do ur research BEFORE you talk shit!

    Congrats Demi!

    ya right! she must be dumb as ****. she clearly has not had enough time to learn everything. good luck trying to get a real job when your career tanks in 18 months.

    they graduate early but wether or not the actually understand and KNOW ALL of the standards is questionable. i mean demi said she went through the ENTIRE algebra two in like 2 months and 2 months is deffinatley NOT enough time to know ALL the concepts and know them REALLY REALLY well. so.. in order to graduate all the celebs had to do is have their tutor go through the concepts and pass a test. get all their units in and they’re done

    NO-

    eh. i’m homeshooled.
    i still do all the same shit
    that every other kid does,
    except i don’t share a class room
    full of kids.
    i went to public school for 8 years,
    and homeschooling has taught me more.
    |: so it’s not as bad, or easy as you think.

    Yeah because 4 hours a day is enough to learn all the shit your supposed to know before graduating. Homeschooling is shit… Private tutoring is shit, unless it is conducted in a reasonable manner. You cannot learn everything in 3-4 hours a day. That’s crap no matter what anyone says.

    Excuse you, I am home schooled…well, cyber schooled, and its extactly like real school, without the walking.

    If you don’t know what you’re talking about, shut the fuck up… all of you. School, -building, home or computer- is still SCHOOL.

  • jas

    well, people like her and miley are prancing around LA on their bikes and going on lunch dates while i slave away hours everyday studying HARD for all my APs, going to extra-curriculars, and having a part time job so i can get into a good college. and they are STILL going to always be more successful, for what? playing make-believe in front of a camera? this world is MESSED UP.
    ==============

    agreed!!

    its annoying that they are constantly out shopping going out to eat riding bikes and im study and doing piles of homework or out in school.
    love them all but its unfair
    and then when they say they are like us and like regular teens well there are some aspects of each of our lives that are completly different we have to deal with school work and bitchy peers while they just study for 3 hours and fill papers out then free to do whatever they want

    anyways before people say im jelous or something im not just stating what i feel and yes im a fan of demi and all the other disney stars

    yeah, but she’s also said that she’s really good at math. my dad is a math teacher, and he basically taught me algebra over the course of one summer so i’d have a better understanding of it when i took it in school.

    in my experience, if it’s a subject you like, you’re more likely to do better. just saying.

    Home school really isnt a joke. I’ll be graduatign at 16, and yes you do still have to take standarized testing, atleast in my state. Basically it’s being able to actually learn without the drama of high school. The amount of hours that you do homeschool really depends, i do 1 one class a day for 2 hours and I have 6 classes, you still have to get your credits and everything. Its the same as school only you dont have to wake up at 6 am.
    ……………………

    please it is a joke. i go to one of the hardest private schools in my state and i assure you i have learned a heck of a lot more than she has. i’m at school for 8 hours a day of non stop classes. we only have a short break for lunch. but its worth it b/c i will have no trouble with getting into college.

    Ok guys she may be at sophmore age but if your homeschooled you get through ur work faster because they dont take like christmas thanksgiving and summer breaks..they work through all of the breaks so it doesnt take as long to finish all of their courses…and they dont take electives and stuff so that also saves alot of time..and they dont take PE either its probably just math english history and science

  • Anabel

    You’re an idiot. Half the shit we learn in school, isn’t used in real life. Geometry, learning about circles and shapes and shit. When are you EVER going to need to know that, unless you’re going to be a fucking architect or something. History, you don’t really need it unless you’re going to study to be a history teacher. Gym, is a useless piece of shit and you don’t learn anything. Health, what the fuck do you learn there other than shit you already know. And all the sciences, like biology chem, and physics, aren’t really that useful unless you’re going to be a scientist or a science teacher. So shove your fucking arrogance about school and you being smarter than a celebrity up your ass, cuz if you think about it. Half the shit you learn in school, besides the basics, you’re not going to use. Therefore, she’s learning everything necessary. And besides, she already has a job. Most of us, go to school and college, to be able to get a job, she’s one step ahead of us already so yeah, good luck with your logic on life, it really helps us see that you’re so much smarter than her.

  • done

    she won’t retain anything but you honestly don’t need to unless you want to specialize and they retrain you anyway. school teaches you the tricks and tips of the trade, not material

  • melly

    normal school goes on for like 6 hours a day, with a whole class. when you are given work to do in class, and u finish early, u have to wait for the rest of the class to finish before u can continue….that’s a lot of time wasted. for home schooling, you work at your own pace. the way they usually do it also is they focus on one general subject for a few weeks and finish before changing to the next subject. that takes less time to learn also. i have a friend who is 21, and a senior in college. she started when she was 17 and her bday is in january. she was home schooled….it is not a joke. teachers actually push u harder and thats y they finish so much earlier…..

  • Anonymous

    Congrats to her for more than likely working her ass off to get all the requirements done in order to graduate. And honestly star’s have on set tutors that push them just as much as regular teachers do. It’s just a different environment because they work at their own pace, do work all the time, don’t have the same breaks as regular school, and get more one on one time with the tutors. AND you forget that young stars also need a work permit to allow them to do their jobs and a BIG part of that work permit is having GOOD grades.

    So Demi did all the work that was required from her and I can tell that she’s a smart girl. Being done now just gives her more time to concentrate on her dreams. God just be happy for her and say CONGRATS GRAD!

    yeah i know because i was home schooled and didnt learn everything i did not get execpted into harvard

    ********************

    Sweetie, even if you would have learned everything doesn’t mean your going to get excepted into Harvard!
    It’s a whole lot more then just learning everything.
    So you obviously have know idea what your talking about.

  • Anonymous

    you know what i agree
    i love demi and all of them but i have to agree with you on this one
    and no im not jelous or anything its just sometimes you cant help but think that its unfair when they are out chillin and im in school pushing and workin my ass to get into college than coming home and doing more schoolwork
    and this is just my opinion i dont want people bitchin at me
    ___________________________________

    Not bitching in the least bit. I respect your opinion. :)
    But, while you were ‘pushing and workin your ass to get into college’ they were schooling and pushing and workin their asses off to have a head start on their dreams, and fulfilled them.

    So, I just wanted to start a discussion, if anyone is interested, private or public school? I’ve done both and i prefer private by far.

    Any opinions?

    homeschooling is definitely not an equivalent to a high school diploma.
    you get through faster because believe it or not, high schools require you to take a lot of classes that aren’t necessarily required to get a GED.

    you’re much better off, academically (and in the long run), to stay in school.
    also, they may learn things faster, but they don’t get into the discussions like i had in high school (about politics, books, etc.) its just learning, nothing hands on.

    in the end, its not even really about the social life and activities they miss out on, its more about the academic discussions and cultural integration that they miss while homeschooled.

    personally, i would never do it.

  • Anonymous

    i don’t get why everyone’s got their panties in a twist about the amount of time they spend in school per day. it’s just like being in college. you’re supposed to learn a bunch of information in a few months, so how is that any different? if anything, hs is WAY easier than college, so they’d probably do it even faster.

    Yay for demi! It’s really not as easy as some people think
    First of all, she turned 16 last August so she would be a JUNIOR not a sophomore. Which means she’s only a little over a year early.
    Second of all, how many of you have actually been home-schooled? I’m guessing very few. While some people do have easy tutors and supervisors, not everyone does. It’s much easier to go at a faster pace when you are home-schooled, the one-on-one attention makes it easier for teachers to explain material. So it doesn’t mean they do less, they just do it faster. And there isn’t a 3-hour limit, sometimes they spend more time on school. 3 hours is the MINIMUM they have to do every day.

  • yes

    i was replying specifically to one person, not everyone who is homeschooled in general.
    she (?) said that she can sleep all day, do her work whenever she wants, etc., and that is not realistic for college and future jobs.

  • LittleWasserman

    I feel bad for these child stars. Yea they make money so what but they are missing the school expernice. Home school is different from high school and real school. And once your a child star its diffcult to get a job as adulyt. Hopefully it doesn’t happen to them. But way to go Demi

    thats so not fair. most people graduate at 18 and she graduating at 16! wtf? homeschool really isnt even that great, much less better.

    I find that bullshit.
    Like…good for her.
    But that’s not fair for
    us. Like, we actually have
    to work for our stuff.
    They get it good, fame, money,
    not having to do anything to
    graduate. She’s like…2 months
    older and I have 2 more years to
    go.
    Kind of bullshit.
