About this Episode

The Essential School Sucks, #12 of 50

Theme Two: Leaving Institutional Schooling and Finding Educational Alternatives

Connor Boyack is a home-educating parent and the founder of the Libertas Institute. He joins me to discuss his book Passion-Driven Education, which is definitely a nice companion piece for the School Sucks Podcast.


  • School is a tool for social transformation; education is a tool for self-transformation
  • Addressing Concerns: Structure, "assessment," and protection in the homeschool environment
  • Is the process of critical inquiry more important than the actual information gained?
  • Minimally Invasive Education
  • "hackschooling"
  • A Star Wars story about child motivation

The Books:
Passion-Driven Education
The Tuttle Twins Set by Connor Boyack: The Law, The Golden Rule, Miraculous Pencil, Education Vacation
