Continuing the Conversation
With your host Jeff Kanter
and Charles Frohman
On 9/29/21 we had with us Kerry McDonald the Senior Education Fellow for the Foundation for Economic Education (FEE).
Every Wednesday your Freedom Hub (founded by Jeff Kanter and Charles Frohman) hosts two Zoom calls. One is at 4pm, the other at 7pm. The 4pm call is eclectic (often regarding our liberties…or disappearing liberties) and the 7pm usually is centered around practitioners who use a cash-based practice and what they do. These are recorded and archived.
Lockdowns Bring Out the Locke: The Education Exodus
Parents or pedogogues questioning the homework, rule-heavy schooling system arrive if they're lucky at the classics from student-led learning gurus like Gatto, Neill or anyone at the Alternative Education Resource Organization. Interest in improving childhood education has exploded as the government has ratcheded down its Covid tyranny. In opposition to the draconian orders libertarians have demanded respect for liberty, itself dependent on philosophers like Locke - who would limit government's role to only protecting ones property right in ones life, liberty and the things one owns. But what if we learned Locke also wrote about alternative schooling?
Ms. McDonald wrote a groundbreaking essay how Locke arms one not only against terrifying government coercion, but also empowers parents to upgrade the education of their kids. An advocate of what modern folks might term “gentle parenting", Locke "...advocated for abundant childhood playtime, developmentally appropriate academics, positive discipline techniques, and freedom over force to cultivate an eagerness for learning," Kerry writes.
