Ep 2 – What is (and isn’t) Homeschooling?
In 2020, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, a lot more people have considered alternatives to public school. If you're new to this world, you might have your own conceptions about what it means to homeschool, and probably some misconceptions too. What is it exactly? Online private school? Full boxed curriculum sets? Unschooling? Well, ask two different families how they do it, and you'll probably get different answers. Unlike public school with its cookie cutter one-size-fits-all approach, homechooling can be tailored to fit your specific family needs. Schedules, curriculum options, and subjects are flexible, and that's one of the things that makes homeschooling great! In this episode we go into detail about what is and isn't homeschooling. Links: Tom Woods' Liberty Classroom - Get the economics and history lessons you never had in school from top instructors.Weapons of Mass Instruction: A Schoolteacher's Journey Through the Dark World of Compulsory Schooling by John Taylor Gato - An excellent read (or as we prefer, listen) on the history and state of public education. Drink of the episode: Kendall Jackson Vinter's Reserve Chardonanny - We're normally red wine fans, but when we need a white, this is our go-to. Sweet and crisp, with citrus and pear notes. Yum!
