RLL #80: Why Are You Still Sending Your Kids to School? with Blake Boles



We speak a lot around here about lifelong learning, that self-motivated pursuit of knowledge not based on a required set of circumstances but learning for its own sake.  When our kids are younger, they usually seem pretty content to follow our lead in how to do this. But as our guest today explains, once these kids hit adolescence, their needs change, and they want to be more peer-centered and useful to the broader world.

Listen in as Colleen speaks with Blake Boles, author of “Why Are You Still Sending Your Kids to School?” about self-driven learning for our kids, and how oftentimes it is as easy as getting out of their way and letting them pursue their interests.
