5 A couple of weeks ago I had a very entertaining conversation on Unplugged Mom. One of us is playing devil’s advocate. Curious as to your reactions. You can find the conversation here.

It was interesting, but I wish she would have asked you more open-ended questions in between the specific questions, so we could have heard more from you. I came away feeling like I heard a lot more of her opinion than of your expertise. Thanks for posting the link. 🙂 Sherrill Fink December 20, 2011 You are always articulate and interesting. However, you were also particularly diplomatic on this interview. Well done! I agree with Jenny that I wished the interviewER talked a bit less than the interviewEE. You are absolutely right that it is a big mistake to paint with too broad a brush, let alone add demonizing to the mix. Sandy December 25, 2011 The interviewer likes to hear herself talk. Nancy Larimer January 1, 2012 Susan, The interview was very helpful to me. This is my second year home schooling. Thank you and God bless you! Deborah January 2, 2012 World’s. Longest. Intro. (Ditto @Sandy) Definitely agree with the point that the “Us vs. Them” mentality really helps no one. Between the wealth of experience that home educators have with alternative curricula/methods and the newer tools like Khan Academy, there are some great opportunities to introduce more flexibility into public education for the benefit of a huge mass of students.
