Choices in Education – Charter Schools and Home Schooling

by Mike Ferguson

(St. Charles, MO) – School may be out for summer but education continues to evolve in the Show Me State and around the nation.

This week, Peter Franzen from the Children’s Education Alliance of Missouri gives us an overview of why charter schools are becoming more common around the country. Missouri lawmakers debated but ultimately did not approve a proposal to allow charter schools outside of Kansas City and St. Louis. That is likely to be debated again in 2018.

Also, Al and Sheryl Schmidt from the Missouri-based Families for Home Education discuss the facts, the myths and the challenges related to home schooling.
