On this edition of the Heartland Institute’s education podcast, your host, education research fellow and managing editor of School Reform News, Teresa Mull, spoke to Heartland’s own Lennie Jarratt, project manager for education transformation.
Gymnast Simone Biles rose to prominence in the recent Olympic Games, winning gold medals and the hearts of Americans who cheered her on. Part of what made Biles so successful in her sport is the fact she was homeschooled. Jarratt, who homeschooled his two children, speaks about why the growing homeschooling movement is so valuable to not only people like Biles, but to any student who needs to tailor his learning to specific needs. Jarratt addresses misconceptions and stereotypes surrounding homeschooling, and shares his own experience with homeschooling, along with suggestions for how to get started.
