About this Episode

FEE Senior Education Fellow, author, and mom Kerry McDonald joins the show to break down the explosion in permanent homeschooling amid pandemic life and how it plays into a broader homeschooling revolution.

How has the last year exposed the failures of traditional government schools? What are 'pandemic pods' and new forms of alternative education looking like? Can anyone homeschool, or is it only an option for wealthy elites? We discuss all this, break down common myths about homeschooling and counterarguments against it, and recap Kerry's personal high-profile debates with opponents who want to ban homeschooling.
