    I really want to thank you for this episode! I hated school, I sucked at school, and I got very little out of school.I’ve since realized that parts of my brain grew out of sync with what was being taught, for instance I was unable to learn the multiplication tables in 3rd grade because to me it was gibberish to me. My teachers never figured this out. That is just a very small example of how bad public schools are, but it symbolizes the whole concept for me.
    But now thanks to this interview I realize that my having to find workarounds for schoolwork preserved my creative and problem solving abilities!
    Later in high school I quit doing homework but because I always past tests the teachers gave me passing grades but except for a 6th grade class on propaganda what I learned was completely accidental and mostly useless.

    Awesome interview Neema and James! These subjects are right up my alley.

      Thanks, Garrett! I’ve listened to a few Disindoctrination podcasts, and you are definitely speaking my language in a lot of ways as well. If you guys ever want to chat, let me know!

    Hey Paul! You seem like quite a knowledgeable fellow on this subject. I’ll definitely be heading over to your site to hear more about this.

    CONFIRMED! I do love the article you linked. Great resource, I never even CONSIDERED how much easier homeschooling would be than traditional schooling, because our motivations don’t come from that area. But you’re right, just think about how much time kids and parents spend “filing paperwork” with their local school districts. Yuck!

    Hey Paul, did I ever tell you that the city that has the most viewers of Freedom Feens, by FAR, is Portland, OR?

    We’ve booked James to come back for an update interview in three months.

    Another great interview, Neema!

    That decision James was trying to remember was “Pierce v. Society of Sisters”, here is wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pierce_v._Society_of_Sisters
    The interesting thing here is that it was passed in my former state of Oregon via initiative, and at the time the Ku Klux Klan was active in Oregon and promoted this initiative to force all kids into government schools. The intention was to “Christianize the Catholics” as Marshal Fritz used to say. That is, an anti-Catholic measure. Part of the Progressive Era, when government was looked at as an answer to everything.

    As to another point you two mentioned, the authorities coming down on you… I used to tell homeschooler newbies on the state email list (almost certainly monitored by the teacher’s union) not to register as homeschoolers. Reason being, then they are not always getting on your case, because they don’t even know you exist. There were quite a few moms on that list who registered and wish they hadn’t, and not a one who didn’t register and wish she had. I always wondered if I’d get some action from my advocacy (also telling them homeschooling laws are all unconstitutional, which they are) but nothing ever happened. I suppose it may have had to do with the comments I sometimes made on the list that if someone messed with my family they’d be biting off a lot more than they could chew. Most bureaucrats really want an easy existence, and dealing with an enraged and possibly violent parent probably ain’t it, heh.

    I don’t think James has to worry about repression of homeschooling. That’s one djinni that is completely out of the bottle, and ain’t going back in again. The state of California tried a bit of crude repression a few years back and it completely failed. More likely any attack will be via coopting homeschoolers by offering them state “bennies”. Such a line has been more successful, but is being resisted on the homeschool lists.

    Neema, I never thought Charlie Brown’s teacher would make for such a hip track. Loved doing the interview, and hope to be back feenin again some time soon!
