College, Education, & Alternative Schooling: A Panel Discussion with the IHomeschool Network

Have you ever wondered about alternatives to college? College alternatives are on the rise, and now more than ever, there are several college alternatives available for all high school graduates. Join the bloggers of iHomeschool Network as we discuss those college alternatives.

Today I had the pleasure of participating in the above-described Google Hangout Session with the IHomeschool Network.

It was a fun time.

  1. Enjoyed this podcast. Very good points made
    by all. We need alternatives. I don’t think that
    formal education is for everyone, either. And
    everything I’ve been reading up on about Praxis
    shows it to be an excellent alternative.

    As you may already know I am not a fan of the
    public education system and the endless tax
    dollars from working people thrown at it. It
    isn’t gov’t money. But this is the prevailing
    perception. Like a law of gravity, the gov’t’s
    position is that if it’s “footing the bill” then it
    gets to dictate what goes into the minds of the
    students. Thus they are taught WHAT to think
    not HOW to think.

    And out of this past 50 years or so comes the
    predominance of teachers, professors, lawyers,
    politicians, media, intelligentsia, etc., driving
    the current state of affairs. And promoting
    escalating Statism and Big Government. (The
    burdensome student loans are also a result of
    this. ) Education should teach you how to live.
    After that making a living is easy.

    The persistent negative attitudes about money are
    also a by-product of all this. As though it taints us
    by its very presence. I generally ask people that if
    they have a skill, an asset, a talent, could they sell
    it on the open market? Would anyone else pay for
    it, in kind , or in a tangible asset such as money? How
    would anyone evaluate the worth of such assets?
    What one thinks it’s worth and what the market will
    pay becomes the objective criteria—the reality check.
    And at its best, an honorable exchange.
