Total of 12.5. Did a workout with Benjamin down the Provo Canyon. FIrst 3.5 - I got 19:56, he got 19:30. Then some jogging and a fast mile. He got 4:54, I got 5:14.8. Then a cooldown. He ended up with 10.5 miles. I ran 2 more with Julia.
Last night we found out that Benjamin got a 4-year full-tuition scholarship to BYU on the condition of maitaning 3.6 GPA. He hopefully will not need 4 years given that he is currently a sophomore. This shows that a purely home-schooled 15-year-old student can go at least to BYU on a scholarship without ever obtaining a high school diploma. This is an important breakthrough - if not in policy, then at least in thinking. Many families that would otherwise be home schooling send their kids to public schools because they are afraid that colleges will discriminate against home schooled students with no credentials that can only come from some kind of an educational establishment. Our exprience shows this is not the case.
