At that time, his student status was in the second grade of elementary school, and he had been a self-study for two years. Unlike ordinary self-study students, we do not participate in group self-study, nor is it the "self-study" mentioned in this book. We are in between. We go back to school for a few days and study at home for a few days. Children master it by themselves.

In the past two years, I have been very clear that education and schooling are two completely different things. When my child was homeschooling, I observed that he
