HS FAQ: Famous HSers

Your question: Homeschooling is becoming very famous in the world but are there any famous people who haven’t gone to school?  

My answer: In India homeschooling is not very popular yet but our great poet Tagore’s studies happened at home. And look at the list below. None of these famous people from around the world have been to school.

  • Scientist Thomas Edison- the inventor of the electric bulb
  • Abraham Lincoln- president of the USA
  • Writers Charles Dickens and Mark Twain (who famously said- Don’t let your schooling come in the way of your education)
  • Tennis stars Serena and Venus Williams
  • Comedian Charlie Chaplin
