EP Special Guest: Leigh Bortins
Homeschool classical ed offers hope for the future...
Thea interviews special guest, Leigh Bortins, Founder and Chief Visionary Officer of Classical Conversations, who shares her personal story of leaving her prestigious career path to homeschool her children and create a classical, home-centered high school curriculum, which has blossomed into a national K-12 program serving over 130,000 students, and has exploded internationally. Thea and Leigh discuss the organization's beliefs about classical education, discouragement with policymakers, opposition to public funding of private institutions, and frustration with government regulation, with an emphasis on personal responsibility and traditional values in a free society. Listeners are directed to the Classical Conversations website for more information.
