Video: How School Holds Kids Back. Retired Public School Teacher and Homeschool Parent Discuss

•, by Joe Jarvis

Or do formal lessons stop kids from learning what is important to them?

Perhaps to excel in anything, the choice of what to study needs to be entirely up to the child, teen, and young adult. That is what we discuss in this video.

Education is important to my family. My mom Jaci was a 5th-grade public school teacher for 19 years, before retiring in June.

My sister Jen chose to homeschool her children in a "free-range" parenting style. Ironically, she was valedictorian of her public high school class. She got an academic scholarship to Providence College.
