Since it’s back-to-school time, I am posting a bunch of videos about education. See my post here for a TV special made in the 80s about why it’s important not to trust government with educating our children. This post showcases the videos from the 2014 Agency-based Education Conference. The above video shows Neil Flinders, who wrote Teach the Children: An Agency Approach to Education. Supposedly this is the book that inspired Oliver DeMille to write A Thomas Jefferson Education.
The video above features homeschooling mom Mary Biesinger, on how to mentor your children in their life’s missions.
In this video, Mark Cluff talks about the Sudbury Valley school model.
Quin Denning shares his journey as an educational maverick in the above video.
In this video, Oak Norton, founder of Agency-based Education, shares his proposal for creating an educational system that increases parental control and decreases the amount that taxpayers pay for education. As I know that not all parents want to or can homeschool, I appreciate his “local control” model.
Because I love Audrey, I am posting her video at the ABE conference 2 years ago.
Then because I love Aneladee and the commonwealth school model, I am posting her video as well. This is the model that I have participated in for my children for the past 10 years.
