I just came across this video that made me think twice about why and how I homeschool. It is similar to a lot of the talks Sir Ken Robinson has over at Ted talks. This talk is called “Stop Stealing Dreams” by Seth Godin.
Why do you Homeschool? Chances are that you homeschool in part to give your children a good education. But did you know:
“Large scale education was not developed to motivate kids or to create scholars.”
“If we give kids the foundation to dream, they will figure out the grammar and the history the minute it helps them to reach their goals and make a difference.”
You can download Seth’s book for free at this link.
What do you think? I don’t totally agree with everything Seth says, but I think has does have some good points. So for now I will keep using google but I will also keep making my kids learn spelling words.
