School is Optional

I am so happy to share this TEDx Talk by North Star’s Ken Danford. I encourage everyone to watch the video, but I especially encourage those of you who are:

  • a teen or the parent of a teen who is unhappy at school
  • a homeschooling teen or parent whose friends, neighbors, or relatives question your choice to homeschool
  • a teen or parent of a teen who wonders whether it’s possible to lead a happy, fulfilled life (including attending college and/or becoming gainfully employed in your chosen career) without attending traditional school
