Sid, Society, & Sundry Subjects

Wednesday, March 4th, 2009

After taking a week off, we’re back to follow up on our last episode.  Listener Sid concluded his comment on the last episode with a question about the effects on society as a whole when people pull their children out of public school to homeschool.

In this episode, we start by responding to Sid’s thoughts, and then we meander through some other thoughts related to that.

In this episode, we discuss some of the reasons behind our decision to homeschool (our reasons may not be what you expected!), and why we feel that it has simplified our lives in some ways.
