“The thing is—it’s not even about the academics. Homeschooling is important, academics are important, because that’s what points our children towards Christ. But parenting is not about academics. It’s about discipling and training the hearts of our children." - Yvette Hampton

Heidi St. John - You Can Homeschool!

In late June and early July we were in Vancouver, Washington to finish filming Schoolhouse Rocked with Heidi St. John at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center. During our time there Yvette had a chance to record an episode of the Heidi St. John Podcast with Heidi. 

Heidi St. John and Yvette Hampton answer viewers questions about homeschooling.

Following the show, Yvette and Heidi went live on Facebook to answer viewer questions about homeschooling. This episode of the podcast and the following Q&A was such an encouragement to listeners we decided to rebroadcast it and make the Q&A video available to our subscribers and Backstage Pass members.

We have got to educate people, as to what freedom and liberty are about, what the constitution is all about, parental rights, and who our kids belong to. That’s very elementary. Socialism and Marxism would have us believe our kids belong to the government.” – Zan Tyler

 

Zan Tyler - Homeschool Podcast Interview

While we were at the Firmly Planted Homeschool Resource Center, in Vancouver, Washington to finish filming interviews for Schoolhouse Rocked, homeschool pioneer, Zan Tyler stopped by for a surprise visit. Zan was instrumental in the fight to make homeschooling legal in South Carolina, in the early 1980s. She was in Oregon to speak at the Oregon Christian Home Education Association Network (OCEANetwork) homeschool conference, in Albany, Oregon and wanted to visit Heidi St. John and get a tour of the homeschool resource center. Because her story of the legal battles and persecution that she endured to pave the way for homeschooling families in her state provided such important historical perspective and cautionary advice, we didn’t want to miss the opportunity to interview her for the movie and for the podcast.

Following her dramatic battle for the right to homeschool her children, Zan went on to teach them through graduation and all three of them attended college on a variety of scholarships. Gaining resolve during her battle, she went on to fight for other homeschooling families in South Carolina and across the United States, founding the South Carolina Association of Independent Home Schools in 1990, Speaking at homeschool conventions around the world, and writing several books, including Seven Tools for Cultivating Your Child’s Potential and the forward for Heidi St. John's Busy Homeschool Mom's Guide to Daylight: Managing Your Days Through the Homeschool Years. She has also worked to develop Bible-bases homeschool resources as the director of Apologia Press. Here is her story.

Danielle Papageorgiou Lifeschooling

Backstage Pass Members can view exclusive behind-the-scenes video from this episode.

Visit Members.SchoolhouseRocked.com

Danielle Papageorgiou has been homeschooling, or “lifeschooling,” for 14 years and has run the WINGS Homeschool Group for Charlotte, North Carolina homeschooling families for the past eight. She has a passion for helping other homeschoolers learn how to homeschool in a way that does not compete with family life, but actually enhances it… homeschooling done in a spirit of freedom, not legalism. Her desire is to see more families set free from the world’s expectations of what education is and to discover that God has made each family unique and has also placed in each of their children special gifts and desires that He wants to use. The verse that guides the Papageorgious in their pursuit of lifeschooling is Matthew 6:33, “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
