Never been to a school before? Jen had heard of homeschooling but had never met anyone who had tried it. That was different. She sort of wanted to know more, but she didn’t like people to think she was ignorant. Or interested in what they had to say - that opened a gateway for them to share all sorts of stuff with her, and, from her experiences of just that, people usually just spouted boring nonsense.
