Tesca Fitzgerald will be heading off to grad school, but when she finally begins classes at the Georgia Institute of Technology, her classmates will be several years older than her.

In college at age 12, Tesca just graduated from Portland State University and is on the fast track to receive her PhD in cognitive science and human robotic interaction by age 22.

Her mom Ami Fitzgerald says its all down to their homeschooling that has allowed her daughters the freedom to study at their own speed.

Her parents, Ami and Mark Fitzgerald began homeschooling all of their three daughters early on because they were being bullied.

‘I guarantee, if you home school your kids for eight hours a day every day, they’ll be in college at age 12, too,’ Ami told The Oregonian.

An old Chinese curse supposedly translates as, “May you live in interesting times.” (An even better curse is, “May you come to the attention of those in authority.” Oooh, chills.)

It’s been depressing to hear the dire news springing from every side. A rash of shootings around the country. Obama firing the CEO of a private (ahem) company. Fidel Castro offering to “help” our current administration. Trillions more dollars being pledged worldwide to help tanking economies (like that will work, right?). This doesn’t even begin to address the moral decrepitude hitting this country (an out-of-wedlock birthrate of 40 percent!). And now our president is calling for a “stronger global regime” (world government, anyone?).
