ClassCast Episode 005 features a wide-ranging discussion between teacher and philosopher Jim Dunning and our host, Ryan Tibbens. With a focus on schools and how they support (or fail to support) effective education, these accomplished teachers address everything from purpose to data to unschooling while citing their expansive personal and professional experiences as well as a variety of research. Dunning's ideas about parent and student choice are bound to challenge, and perhaps intrigue, even the most progressive educators, students, and policymakers. Leave your questions and responses in the comments below because, after Tibbens catches up on his reading, we hope to host a second conversation with Dunning to dig deeper into unschooling, homeschooling, and the future of parent and student choice in education.
