I love talking with people who talk about Learning and Education as a juxtaposition to "schooling". In this conversation, I talk with Kerry McDonald about a recent article Compulsory Schooling Laws Aren’t Progressive, They’re Inhumane she wrote where she says, "The first step to restore education freedom and empower parents with choice and opportunity for their children is to eliminate compulsory schooling laws that authorize state control of education." https://fee.org/articles/compulsory-schooling-laws-aren-t-progressive-they-re-inhumane/
We talk about this, Unschooling, and innovation in Education that gets us to think outside of our current 'school' box.
