Culture of Peace 0004: Is Public Education Worth Saving?

Culture of Peace Cover

The Honest Teacher joins me on the show to discuss the current state of public education.

This is a deeply personal subject for me. We decided to homeschool my son before he was born, and the world today has certainly vindicated us in that decision. The Honest Teacher covers the ways that compulsory education is harmful to developing young minds. From there, we dive into the push for kids to attend college, dishonesty in education, and many other aspects of school.

Can public education be saved? Is it worth saving? Listen to find out.
