Mike Smith of HSLDA on What Has Changed in 30 Years of Homeschooling

We spent the day at the HSLDA headquarters in Purcellville, Virginia and got to interview Mike Smith and Caleb Mast from the Homeschool Legal Defense Association. We also got to shoot some great b-roll of the lawyers at work, and around the Patrick Henry College campus. It was a great day, and it was excellent to hear from a true homeschooling trailblazer who has been working to protect the rights of families to homeschool their children for over 30 years. In this short clip Mike talks about the biggest change in homeschooling since his family started over 30 years ago.

Josh Tolley – MBA Programs Produce Managers, not Entrepreneurs

“Homeschool families have an amazing opportunity when it comes to teaching their children about entrepreneurship,because what we see in schools… what we see in mass education is that we have a system that has to be graded, and if it has to be graded then it has to be taught to all students the same. This is the reason when people come to me and say, “Josh what MBA program in college should I go partake in to be a great entrepreneur?” I say, “none”, because MBA programs produce great managers. They don’t create great entrepreneurs, because great entrepreneurs have to do something that isn’t easily replicable, and when you have four thousand kids all getting their MBA this year they all got graded on the same criteria all you did was create four thousand people that are going to replicate answers and expect results. The opportunity for homeschoolers lies in the fact that everything can be customizable and applicable.” – Josh Tolley

Andrew Kern on Classical Education

Andrew Kern is the founder of the CiRCE Institute. We met with Mr. Kern in Greenville, South Carolina, during last year’s Southeastern Great Homeschool Convention. His insights into classical education, education philosophy, rest, wisdom and virtue, and Christian intellect were incredibly valuable, and did much to influence our own homeschooling practices.

Wisdom and virtue, truth, goodness, and beauty, knowing God and making him known – these continue to be hailed as the “important things”. Mr. Kern sums these ideas up perfectly in a single Biblical quote, “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.” Hopefully, this is an encouragement to you, as you struggle to prioritize and schedule, plan and execute – to maintain balance.
