The country has sent their children back to school. But many have not. Things like Common Core are getting many people to re-think education. FINALLY!
Education happens every day, all day long. Schooling, as Mark Twain once said, can get in the way of education.
Don’t forget why we are educating our children. It isn’t because we want them to grow up and be rocket scientists, it is because we want them to be happy productive adults.
I wanted to share a video from Ted Talks, that I think fits well into what more and more homeschooling is doing. It is creating passionate people, with a desire to be happy, and who then can go out into the world and create freedom.
There is a great “Not Back To School Summit” that is free for anyone to attend on-line during September 2014. I will be teaching 3 classes. Today, Sept 9 at 7:30 p.m. (Mountain Standard Time), Saturday Sept 20 at 10:00 a.m. and Thursday Sept 25th. Each class is different. There are many other people involved, including one of my mentors Oliver DeMille.
Come join us this month. HERE — http://www.hecoa.com
Congratulations to the Parents for raising a fine young man with beautiful concepts of Happiness and Success!

I love the fresh perspective of this kid. Makes you think twice or maybe even deeply about what we are teaching or how we are teaching our young men and women.
