    Like most pupils in a British grammar school, I was was mortally terrified of my school masters who ruled by the cane. I kept my head down, though I suppose by virtue of being lashed as often as I was, you could've called me a bit of a "bad boy" from 14 onwards, though nothing more serious than breaking a few windows and smoking on school grounds.

    British grammar schools during the sunset of the Empire were a very, very different environment from what we saw on American TV shows.

    Why do you have Homeschooled & Special Ed on the same line?

    I voted "other".
    I wasn't really a "good" girl, wasn't really a "bad" girl. I liked going to parties, friends were more important that classes. But i never really did anything wrong either. I wasn't in the "upper" class, it was a small town, so i never got selected for teams, couldn't make the cheerlead squad even though i could do the cheers better than most...i just wasn't with "their" crowd. And i found when my kids grew up here, it hadn't changed a bit. It was all politics and "who" you were.

    Ran out of space. If there were more than 10 options, I wouldn't have had to double up.

    My youngest sister and daughter were both homeschooled for a time, that's part of why I made it multiple choice, too.

    Having my sister graduate as a home school student was really kind of sad. She was the only one in her graduating class (they did a ceremony at church.)
