Here is a great story about Malvika Joshi, a 17-year-old from India who was just admitted to the B.S. Computer Science program at MIT.
Malvika’s mother, Supriya, pulled Malvika out of school when she was 12. Supriya did not like what school was doing to her daughters, and decided to home-school them.
“Happiness is more important than conventional knowledge.” — Supriya, mother of Malvika
