Rethinking School ~ Susan Bauer

Narrated by Christina Moore   N/F  Education (3)

Despite the fact that I’m not the target audience for this book - we’re nearing the end of our home educating; and, are not US-based - Rethinking School was an easy and engaging listen.  Understandably, portions of this book are American,  K-12 grade schooling, centric.  Chapter 21 was of the most interest to me, especially since Ds is taking a road less travelled after highschool, which does not include University.

There are some help filled suggestions in this book which would make it an excellent read for someone newer to home educating, or whose children are younger or pre-teen, or those who are wrestling with their child’s brick and mortar schooling or in their own homeschooling journey.  Sometimes we can get stuck in a rut, that the route we are taking is the only one,  and can not see the wood for the trees: to have someone who is further ahead of us in the educate-the-children journey offer some concrete suggestions can be a game-changer.
