With COVID-19-lockdowns forcing families to stay at home, an increasing number of parents are choosing to home-school their children. This choice is often further influenced by factors like political views, distrust in the education system or fear for their children’s safety.
In the latest episode of our podcast Quality Education, Dr. Jameson Brewer, Assistant Professor of Social Foundations of Education at the University of North Georgia and author of Homeschooling: A Guidebook of Practices, Claims, Issues, and Implications, talks in detail about the changing trends in home-schooling practices. Brewer makes us rethink formal education and discusses the reality of educating a child without the support of experts or an educational system.
