12. Purpose and Passion-Driven Education

The Essential School Sucks, #12 of 50
Theme Two: Leaving Institutional Schooling and Finding Educational Alternatives
Connor Boyack is a home-educating parent and the founder of the Libertas Institute. He joins me to discuss his book Passion-Driven Education, which is definitely a nice companion piece for the School Sucks Podcast.
* School is a tool for social transformation; education is a tool for self-transformation
* Addressing Concerns: Structure, "assessment," and protection in the homeschool environment
* Is the process of critical inquiry more important than the actual information gained?
* Minimally Invasive Education
* "hackschooling"
* A Star Wars story about child motivation
