Class Dismissed, a Homeschool Movie in the Making

I heard about a movie that is being produced out in Los Angeles that focuses on education, specifically the validity of homeschooling as an alternative to the industrial school model. According to their site, “the film will examine the numerous approaches to home learning, exploring both its history and recent growth.” The movie will follow an ordinary family in their quest to educate their children. You can read more about the film here.  The film tweeted a few hours ago that they are looking for a homeschooling family in the L.A. area who primarily use a curriculum (and are interested in being filmed).

I went to check out their movie trailer and enjoyed what I saw.

    This seems pretty stupid! I think that learning in a class room is a great opportunity for kids!! Teachers are great and so are schools! Kids need to learn that sometimes you do need to do things that you dont want to do! My kids love learning and they are in a school! This movie looks like it’s saying “your kid will only like to learn if they are home schooled.”

      Most of my friends’ kids are in school and love it too. They seem to have great teachers and have thrived and learned a lot in the traditional classroom. I think the movie is exploring another learning alternative (homeschooling), one that is so often misunderstood because it’s outside of the norm. Of course, the film is a work in process so who knows what the end product will be. Hopefully the movie does not come across as public school bashing, but simply as an insight into another viable educational path.
