"Education is nothing like the filling of a reluctant pail.
It is the lighting of a fire."
~William Butler Yeats
There are some big and scary things happening in education right now, and so if you don't want to hear about it, I advise you to find another blog to read today. ;-)
Some may wonder why I care about the public school system, and the requirements that the federal government now places on parents, students, teachers, administrators and schools. My answer is that when freedom is taken from one sector, the powers that be look around for other freedoms that can be destroyed. The homeschooling movement has come too far and done too much to remain unnoticed. Not to mention, many sacrifices have been made by pioneering home educators during the last century to restore the rights and liberty parents have to educate their own children, as our forefathers did for a millenia.
I will go into more of my opinions on the matters at hand in upcoming posts, but today I thought I'd share something that sets the stage for why "Agency-Based Education" is so very important to me:
I am SOOOO GRATEFUL for the freedom I have to educate my children as I see fit!!! I will do all I can to defend that right and the rights of future generations to do the same.
I hope you enjoy this video explanation as much as I do. :-)
